Abstract

This record group consists of multiple personal collections. Every collection comprises family documents of different facets, i.e., personal correspondence, photographs, diplomas and certificates of graduation from educational institutions, and related artifacts.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group through the materials of family histories embodies regional microhistories of prewar, wartime, and postwar period. For example, the Cohen family papers exemplifies the lesser-known facts of the relations between the Italian Fascist regime and the Jewish population in the early years of the Fascist regime. Overall, the families represented in this record group belonged to the Jewish middle class and were well-assimilated. Among the individual documents that stand out is a postcard written by Maria Altman in 1932. This postcard depicts the Castle in Panenske Brezany, Czechoslovakia. Once Reinhard Heidrich had been appointed the Protector of Bohemia and Moravia, this castle became one of his official residences.

Materials included in this record group are personal papers, correspondence, family albums, identification documents, testimonies, and official documents. A number of these documents are digitized.

Sub-Collection 6: RG-16.06, Philip Raucher Collection, 1939  -1945Add to your cart.

Philip (Pinkus) Raucher was born in Czeladz, Poland, in a small city in the southwestern part of Poland near Germany. His family included his parents, an older sister, and younger brother and a large extended family. Philip Raucher attended both a public school and a private religious school and participated in many sports growing up. He also joined the Polish Boy Scouts and had many non-Jewish friends. He was twelve when the war started, and the Raucher family put up several Jewish families who were deported from Germany across the border because of their Polish passports. During the war, he lived in the Czeladz ghetto and was eventually taken to the Markstadt concentration camp in Germany. From there he was taken to a concentration camp called Funfteichen, a branch of Gross Rosen. After the war, Raucher returned to Czeladz, where he found out his sister and uncle had been. He then found his uncle and sister in his uncle’s hometown and smuggled themselves into Czechoslovakia, then Austria, and into Munich in West Germany. Philip Raucher eventually moved to the United States, but his sister and her husband was unable to obtain an entry visa into the U.S. and instead moved to Brazil. After moving to the United States, Mr. Raucher immediately started adult education and then attended UCLA. He became a mechanical engineer specializing in air conditioning and married. He has a son, a daughter, and two granddaughters.
