Grant, Lisa: Family documents

Scope and Content

This miscellaneous collection of family papers documents the activities of a German Jewish family, [1830-1940]. It includes material on the aryanisation of the family business and the receipt of the Kriegsverdienstkreuz für Kriegshilfe, for service during World War One.

Administrative / Biographical History

The depositor was the grand-daughter of Feodor Schweitzer, the subject of some of the documents. The family came to Great Britain, 1938-1939. The relationship of the individuals referred to in the earlier documentation to the depositor is unknown. It appears that one of the depositor's ancestors was a court photographer in Berlin in the 1860s.
