Mauerstein family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2018.572.1

Identification papers, immigration paperwork, restitution claims, a testimony, and photographs documenting the post-war experiences of Israel and Yetta (née Friedman) Mauerstein, both originally of Zborów, Poland (Zboriv, Ukraine), in several Italian DP camps, and their efforts to immigrate to the United States.

DP camp papers consist of identification papers and paperwork from the Landsberg DP camp in Germany, and the Adriatica and Trani DP camps in Italy. Additionally there are lists of refugees classified as “invalids” from several DP camps in Italy including Adriatica, Bologna, Caldorna, Cremona, Grugliasco, Rivoli, and Trani.

Immigration papers include affidavits from Israel’s brother Benjamin, who immigrated to the United States in the 1920s, and his cousin Max Mauerstein; WHO vaccination certificates; a letter of support from Yetta’s cousin Rabbi Kalman Friedmann; and a souvenir booklet from the USNS General A.W. Greely.

Photographs consist of depictions of Israel and Yetta Mauerstein, their daughter Mina, Israel’s brother David Mauerstein, and Yetta’s uncle Sigmund Appel in several DP camps in Italy.

Additionally, there is one restitution form of Israel’s from 1955 and a typed, undated testimony from Yetta in German.
