Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Kathe Cahn-Hepner and Mrs Jacobs-Hepner, the depositors of this collection, are the daughters of Fritz and Leonie Cahn, German Jews who spent the war years in Switzerland. The depositors provided brief notes about most of the correspondents, many of whom perished in the Holocaust.
The material has been arranged alphabetically according to correspondent. Copy correspondence (mostly between family members) is described separately [1206/1/1-31]. In addition, there are miscellaneous writings and some newspaper cuttings [1206/2/1-2]. Many of the letters have been annotated (probably by the depositors) with information relating to the correspondents' identity and/or fate.
