Hilde Aron papers

Document | Accession Number: 2018.107.1

The Hilde Aron papers consist primarily of letters and postcards from Levi and Franziska Speier and their younger daughter Ursula in Guxhagen and Borken, Germany, to their older daughter, Hilde, who had immigrated to the United States in 1938. The letters describe Jewish holidays, the Speiers’ need for more food, and their efforts to emigrate. Additional letters document the Speier family’s deportation and murder and the whereabouts of other family members after the Holocaust. The papers also include loose postcards conveying greetings from Hilde’s family and friends and the empty album that formerly housed them.
