Also in Thomas Rehfisch collection
Letters sent to donor's father Thomas Rehfisch (later Rey) from family in Germany and friends. Thomas Rehfisch immigrated to the UK from Germany in 1934. Also included in the collection are a slide rule and a first aid booklet sent to him from his mother in Germany (the slide rule was secondhand), and educational certificates.
The Thomas Rey papers primarily consist of letters he received in England from family members in Germany. Correspondents include his parents Lilli and Hans Rehfisch, his grandmothers Hedwig Rehfisch and Agnes Stadthagen, his aunts Käthe Wassertrudinger, Toni Salomon, and Hilde Stadthagen, and his friends Rolf Einzinger, Selma Wohl, and Gabi Sachs. Most of the correspondence is addressed from Berlin, but some of Lilli’s letters were sent from Neubabelsberg (Potsdam), some of Käthe’s letters were sent from Palestine, and some of Thomas’ friends wrote from elsewhere in Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The collection also includes a copy of the first aid booklet Erste Hilfe bei Erkrankungen und Unglücksfäallen mit Benützung von Dr. Dessauer's "Touring" Apotheke as well as University of London records documenting Thomas Rey’s education.
