Eva and Otto Pfister papers

Document | Accession Number: 2018.448.1

The Eva and Otto Pfister papers consist of diaries, immigration files, and printed materials documenting German Jewish refugee Eva Pfister’s experiences in France and New York, her efforts on behalf of her non-Jewish German refugee husband Otto Pfister and their socialist colleagues, and the anti-Nazi work of the Internationaler Sozialistischer Kampfbund (ISK). Eva’s four diaries document her teenage years in Goldap, her life as a refugee in France separated from Otto, interned in Gurs, waiting in Montauban for her opportunity to emigrate, her escape over the Pyrénées to Lisbon, and her immigration to the United States aboard the Nea Hellas. Her immigration file documents her efforts to obtain visas for her ISK colleagues stranded in southern France.
