    Brandes family correspondence

    Please select from the following options:


    Correspondence from Keila and Anna (Hanna) Brandes in Vienna to their son and brother Richard Brandes (donor's grandfather), who following his emigration from Austria and the outbreak of World War II, was classified by the British government as an "enemy alien" and interned in a camp in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. File contains a letter of reference from Richard Brandes' employer in Vienna in 1934, and six letters sent to him by his mother and sister in Vienna, between December 1939 and May 1941. One on of the last letters, Richard Brandes wrote a reply, intending to send it back to them. Keila, Hanna and Marcus Brandes, who lived at 2 Rembrandtstrasse in Vienna, were deported on 23 November 1941 to Riga, but the train took them to Kaunas (Kovno) instead. The transport arrived in Kaunas on 27 November and all one thousand Jews onboard were executed in Fort IX on 29 November, 1941.
