Friedman family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2009.348.2

The Friedman family papers consist of biographical materials, photographs, and restitution files documenting the Friedman family from Mukachevo, their prewar lives, the deaths of family members in the Holocaust, the immigration of surviving family members to the United States, and their efforts to receive restitution for their persecution and suffering during the Holocaust.

Biographical materials include certificates of birth, marriage, death, citizenship, and good conduct; identification papers, immigration papers, a partial list of former Holleischen inmates, Ruth Cohen’s personal narrative about Holleischen, records documenting her father’s importation of alcohol supplies from Czechoslovakia after the war, and Ruth’s fourth grade school booklet.

Photographs depict the Friedman family in Mukachevo before the war; Ruth’s relative Rabbi Moritz Schwartz and his hachschara in Hlovec; and Ruth with other survivors after the war at a sanatorium in the Tatry Mountains.

Restitution papers include applications, forms, correspondence, affidavits, and decisions document the Freidman family’s attempts to receive restitution from Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Hungary for their Holocaust losses.
