    Consists of letters written by members of the Czuczka family of Vienna, Austria, between 1939-1941. The majority of the letters were written by Artur Czuczka and detail his attempts to emigrate from Austria and join his brother's family in the United States.

    Artur Czuczka was born on November 2, 1889 in Vienna, Austria. By 1938, he was living with his mother, Amalie (b. August 24, 1861 in Eger, Hungary), having been forced to give up the family's printing company. Artur was arrested and interned after Kristallnacht, but was eventually released. Artur's brother, Fritz, emigrated to the United States in the late 1939 with his wife Lola and son George. Fritz and Lola contacted the American Friends Service Committee, since Lola had worked for the AFSC in Vienna. The committee began to work on behalf of Artur's emigration. Artur originally refused to leave Amalie and, by the time she passed away from natural causes in the spring of 1941, it was too late for him to leave on his own. Artur was deported to Opole, in Silesia; the circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.
