Otto and Monna Weinmann papers

Document | Accession Number: 2013.374.1

The collection consists largely of correspondence between Otto and Monna Weinstein during their courtship and after their marriage, while Monna was living in London and Otto was serving with the 2nd Armored Regiment, 3rd Squadron of the Czech forces under British command. While the bulk of the collection consists of their personal correspondence, Otto was very careful to keep any information about his work or location away from enemy hands; therefore, their correspondence with each other is largely personal. Also includes pre-war and wartime correspondence between Otto and his uncle Paul in Amsterdam, terminating in 1943; an attempt to trace Paul’s fate after the war; and wartime correspondence from Monna’s mother, Marya Steinbach, who had emigrated to Rishon le Zion, Palestine, prior to the outbreak of war.
