Hermansdörfer family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2015.107.1

The Hermansdörfer family papers consist of correspondence relating to the efforts of Jennie Hermansdörfer Bieber and her daughters Sophie Acker and Dorothy Nomberg to bring the Hermansdörfer family from Łąka, Poland (Luka, Ukraine) to the United States before the Holocaust. Correspondence includes letters of support from Adra Day, Elise Gilman, and Philip Acker to the American Consulate in Warsaw; a letter from Leon Hermansdörfer to the Acker family; a rejection letter from the Consulate; and a postwar letter from a cousin in Poland indicating that none of the Hermansdörfer family survived the Holocaust. The papers also include a postwar tracing form from the National Council of Jewish Women completed by Jennie Bieber in search of Dora, Leip, Pescha, Rebeka Lea, Israel, Adolph, and Sally Hermansdörfer.
