Rubel family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2016.168.2

The Rubel family papers consist of letters and postcards exchanged between Ferdinand and Else Rubel, originally of Steinbach am Donnersberg, Germany, who had immigrated to the United States, and loved ones in Nazi-occupied Europe. The bulk of the correspondence is addressed to Ferdinand and Else Rubel in New York by friends and family members imprisoned in the Gurs, Rivesaltes, and Noé internment camps. The letters and postcards relay gratitude for letters, packages, and money transfers; describe the poverty and illness in the camps and worries about relatives selected for labor detail; and requests for help with emigration efforts. The papers also include a receipt for a money transfer from Else Rubel to Ida Lang.
