Lotte and Ellen Markiewicz correspondence

Document | Accession Number: 2015.195.1

Consists of Red Cross messages exchanged between Ellen Markiewicz, in London, and her mother, Lotte Markiewicz, in Berlin, between September 1940 and September 1941. The notes, which are necessarily brief, discuss welfare and were the only means of contact between Lotte and her daughter, who went to England as part of a Kindertransport. Lotte survived the war in hiding. Also includes a typed testimony, 1 page, in German, written by "Willi," a foreman in the factory where Lotte Markiewicz worked during the war, in 1961.
