Thomas Rey papers

Document | Accession Number: 2018.24.1

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.
