Isak Rosenbaum was a Holocaust survivor from Vienna, Austria, although he was born in Jassy (Iasi), Romania. He was incarcerated in Dachau after Kristallnacht where he wrote postcards and letters home to his wife, Rosalia Honig Rosenbaum. They had a daughter, Sophie, who was rescued on the Kindertransport. He later immigrated to the United States via Palestine. When he and his family arrived in America, they legally changed their names to John, Rosalie, and Sophie Karen Roberts. He mostly lived in New York City, but retired to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he died in 1974. The collection consists of immigration documents and postcards and letters written from the Dachau concentration camp. It also contains articles written by David Bader about Sophie Rosenbaum Bader as well as a copy of the Kindertransport manifest listing Sophie as a passenger. Arranged in chronological order.
