Eskanazi family photographs

Document | Accession Number: 2018.576.1

Photographs of Lena (Eskenazi) Morris; her siblings Eli, Sylvia and Emmanuel Eskanazi; and their friends. Also includes photographs from the Vittel internment camp in France. Miriam and Israel Eskenazi emigrated from Salonika, Greece to the United States circa 1917, where their children Eli and Lena were born. The family returned to Salonika circa 1922 where their children Sylvia and Emmanuel were born. In the spring of 1943, Miriam, Israel, Sylvia and Emmanuel were among the thousands rounded up in Salonika and deported to Auschwitz, where they died. Because Lena and Eli were American citizens, they were instead sent to the Vittel internment camp in France. Lena was released and returned to New York in 1943.
