Epstein family collection

Document | Accession Number: 2013.457.1

The Epstein family collection, circa 1920-1979, includes official documents, correspondence, and photographs relating to the family’s experiences during World War II. The majority of the collection relates to Julian Epstein (1889-1943), a Jewish opera singer and jeweler, who was imprisoned in a series of French internment camps and died at the Lublin-Majdanek concentration camp in Poland. The collection includes a series of letters between Julian and his wife Margarete (1898-1988) written between 1938 and 1943. The collection also contains photographs of the Epstein family before and after the war as well as photographs of French survivors working in an ORT workshop.
