Abstract

This record group contains multiple legal documents and related personal correspondence produced by Werner Schleyer and by the others on his behalf. Werner Schleyer was seeking emigration from Germany to the United States. He was born in 1909 in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. In the 1930s, he resided in Wiesbaden. He was an interior decorator by trade. From 1938, he pursued emigration to the U.S. on the formal ground to be reunited with his second aunt Florence B. Klee, who resided in Brooklyn, Kings County, NY. Florence B. Klee settled in the US in 1898. She was naturalized as a US citizen in 1903 by marriage.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Multiple official and private correspondences in relation to facilitte the emigration of Werner Schelyer from Nazi Germany to the United States. This record group includes official judicial documents issued by German, British and American immigration authorities, as well as private correspondence between Werner Schlyer in Wiesbaden, Germany with his aunt, Florence Klee in New York. Additionally there is a correspondence between the law firm, facilitating Mr. Schleyer's emigration and him. Some documents are of postwar American period.

Collection Historical Note

Mr. Schleyer emigration from Germany depended on issuance of a sufficient affidavit of support on the part of Florence B. Klee. The documents below illustrate official and personal correspondence between Werner Schleyer, his brother B. Schleyer in England, and his second aunt Florence B. Klee in the United States. As we shall see a required affidavit of support had been long delayed on the part of Florence Klee that in turn delayed Mr. Schleyer’s emigration from Germany. He managed to leave Germany in 1939 for England and in 1940 he sailed from there for the U.S.  In 1941, from January to July 1941, he was on active duty military service in Fort Bowie in Texas. Eventually, he settled in California.

These papers, letters, and documents illustrate the frustration and ultimate success of Werner Schleyer, presently George W. Schuyler, in his attempt to escape from Germany to the U.S. via England between the years of 1938 and 1940. Correspondence between him and his aunt highlights the futility and disappointment many must have felt with the insecurity arising from the unresolved procedural questions that in reality may have delayed or made indefinite the obtaining of the U.S. visas.
