Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
David W. Bikles Family Collection
The collection contains extensive correspondence sent from Siegmund and Therese Wronkow and Adolf and Helene Salomon to their children and grandchildren in Ecuador. The letters describe in great detail the deprivations and restrictions of the remaining Jewish community, from forced leaving of their homes to smaller and smaller quarters, closing of Jewish old age homes and hospitals to final deportations. As the Jewish community was deprived of their monies, their posessions or any means of making a living they sank lower and lower into poverty. This caused a great strain on family relations and available social services.
