Scope and Content Note

From the Collection:

This collection contains two letters, several passports and identification cards, and a large amount of small-format photographs, likely shot during World War I.

The first letter contains a long, essayistic statement expressing Maier's thoughts on the possibilities and implications of a return of Jewish refugees to Germany after the end of the second World War. The second letter is directed to the general secretary of Deutsche Bank and recounts his father's career as director of the Frankfurt branch of Deutsche Bank. The photographs appear to have been mostly taken while serving as a soldier in World War I. Most are unlabeled, but a few labels indicate locations in France and training in Darmstadt, Germany. Many other photos appear to have been taken in Eastern Europe during the war.
