Stern and Pächter family papers
The Stern and Pächter family papers include biographical material, correspondence, testimonies, cookbooks, poems, and documents relating to Mina Pächter, Anny Stern, and their family’s experiences in Prague and Theresienstadt. The collection includes a document instructing Mina to report to Theresienstadt, copies of Mina’s biography and the Pächter family tree, letters from Mina to her daughter, Anny, and one of her sister, Red Cross letters from Mina to her son-in-law Georg and from Josef Stern to Fritz Lederer, copies of transcripts of Anny Stern and Elisabeth Laufer’s oral testimony, a copy of a newspaper clipping about Mina’s cookbooks, and documents relating to Anny’s work at the emigration office in Prague. The collection also includes cookbooks and poems compiled by Mina and other prisoners in Theresienstadt as well as copies and some translations of the recipes and poems. Before Mina died in Theresienstadt, she gave the cookbooks, letters, and photographs to a friend in the camp and ask him to give them to her daughter. The package changed hands several times, but Anny received the package in 1969, 25 years later.
