Collection of photographs, documents, correspondence and memoirs which relate to the experiences of the Lindheim family of Frankfurt am Main, Germany (Fred Lindheim, and his parents, Berthold and Hertha), focused primarily on their emigration from Nazi Germany in 1939, and efforts to assist family members in leaving Nazi-occupied Europe after 1940. Includes a doctoral dissertation submitted by Berthold Lindheim to the University of Würzburg in 1923, prewar family photographs (7) and one class portrait from Horst (Fred) Lindheim's class in Malines, Belgium, in 1939. Also includes professional letters of reference and related documents for Berthold Lindheim (ca. 1930-1940); correspondence and documents pertaining to the Lindheim family's efforts to emigrate from Europe, including correspondence from various consulates (Colombia, Dominican Republic), and affidavits and correspondence from sponsors in the United States. The collection also contains copies of documents related to the efforts of Lindheim's grandparents to emigrate; education records for Fred Lindheim, from Germany and the United States; restitution and tracing service correspondence and documents (1956-2012), and two memoirs written by Fred Lindheim, undated, but likely written after 2000.
