Identifier: AR 25003 / MF 872
The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence and photos. The voluminous correspondence saved by the Axelrads mostly deals with professional elaborations between former colleagues and friends, who had scattered to the farthest corners of the globe to escape the Hitler regime and so we have letters (to or from) Australia, South-America, Palestine, and of course the United States. In some instances we gain a faithly accurate picture of the living conditions in the countries of exile. Remarkably well drawn are the descriptions of Marseille, Cuba (both by Alice Laqueur), of Palestine, and most noteworthy, the odyssee of Leontine Axelrad.
