Ilse Frank Collection.
This collection contains a variety of material related to the pre-war life and emigration of members of the Frank family of Bamberg, Germany. There are five handwritten reports by Bernhard Sichel from his studies at the University of Würzburg (1906-1909); four music books from the choir of the Synagogue at Bad Mergentheim, composed by Sol Prager, for four parts: I bass, II bass, I tenor, II tenor, and a printed music sheet entitled Psalmen und Gebete im Urtexte, in Musik gesetzt von David Rubin (circa 1900-1931); birth certificate for Henry (Heinz) Frank (1938); correspondence of Henry Frank from Newark, NJ, with travel agencies, the Joint Distribution Committee, and the US State Department, trying to secure a Cuban visa and passage for his mother Ernestine Frank (née Früh) in Bamberg. The correspondence reflects the enormous financial cost and bureaucracy required for a visa. The papers never went through and Ernestine was deported to Riga, where she perished. (1941-1942).
