Elfriede Toch collection

Document | Accession Number: 2016.243.3

Photographs, immigration documents, family tree, and other materials related to the childhood and emigration from Nazi-occupied Austria in June 1939 of Elfriede Toch, who was one of the "50 children" selected and sponsored by Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus of Philadelphia. The collection includes family photographs from the period of her childhood in Austria; immigration and naturalization documents, including her German passport and American immigration documents; and her autograph book, containing inscriptions and autographs from friends and family members in Austria, 1936-1939, and other emigre friends in Los Angeles after that. The collection also includes post-immigration family photographs; a family tree compiled by Toch's older daughter, Carolyn, for a school project in 1966; digital images of Toch’s younger daughter Cynthia, Elfriede with her parent’s immigration sponsor Mrs. Yumpolsky, and John and Adele Toch; and a United States one-dollar bill, representing the first dollar earned by the Toch's when they opened their new business in Los Angeles following immigration.
