  • Ernest Cassirer album including documents of their son Rudolph Cassirer A set of documents provided by Ernest Cassirer relating to Isidor and Lydia Cassirer. They include the Mourning Book for Isidor Cassirer, a telegram from von Hindenburg to Lydia Cassirer thanking her for help in the first world war, a certificate for the Honour Cross presented to her also for this help, the marriage certificate of Isidor and Lydia Cassirer, and finally, and most ironically, a certificate to Rudolph Cassirer sent in the name of Adoph Hitler, for the Honour Cross for his participation in active military service. These were sent on the request of Hindenburg to Hitler to all who had served, irrespective of their status. It did not inhibit him from later condemning Jewish recipients of this honour to death.
  • Miriam Cassirer Laparne Album of Cassirer Photographs and Anecdotes ~1890-2005 Miriam Cassirer's mother Johanna Baron married Rudolph Cassirer. In later life, suffering from Alzheimer's disease, she annotated the family photographs. Miriam has presented these photographs and their identifications to the site. They cover her grandmother Adele Baron and her grandfather, her mother Johanna and husband Rudolph Cassirer, Johanna's sister Gertrude, her brother Ernest Cassirer, and other connected relatives. Included is a couple who are unidentified. All that is known at this stage is that they sent their children to England and knew they were going to Auschwitz. It is possible that they are related to Johanna's first cousin Ella.
