Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group is comprised of the personal papers of Schoenberg, Zeisl and Aberbach families. Largely, the Schoenberg family papers reflect the life story of Arthur Schoenberg in Germany, whereas the Zeisl family and Aberbach family papers deal with the prewar life of these families in Austria; life under the Nazi regime; and subsequent emigration.

The Zeisl family papers focuses on the baptism of Egon Zeisl in Vienna in 1938, undertaken for the sole purpose of receiving an entry visa to the United Kingdom. There are a number of documents related to Egon Zeisl's immigration from Austria. Additionally, there are documents reflecting his life in the United States.

These collections also contain correspondence between family members in Europe (Austria, Germany, Belgium), as well as in Argentina, and the consulate and emigration organizations in the United States. Overall, these letters were concerned with obtaining entry visas to the United States. They writers of these letters also inquired about family affairs and seek counsel for emigration. On multiple occasions they allude to life in Europe under the Nazi or pro-Nazi regimes. No return correspondence from the United States is available.

The materials in this record group include postcards, certificates, letters, official identification documents, diplomas and certificates from schools and other educational establishments, and photographs primarily from the prewar period. Materials in this record group are digitized.

Collection Historical Note

By the time the Nazis in Germany and Austria had risen to power, the members of the Zeisl, Aberbach and Schoenberg families were separated throughout Europe and America. The younger generation of these families managed to leave Germany and Austria before or soon after the beginning of the Second World War. Apparently, some members of these families had established roots in the United States sometime in the beginning of the 20th century, therefore, the immediate family members had been able to utilize these inter-family relations in order to immigrate. For some family members like Wilhelm (Willy) Zeisl, the flight from Nazi Austria did not transpire until after the Second World War broke out. He was admitted into the United States on September 21, 1939. The other family members, especially the generation of parents, were not that fortunate. The letters exchanged between the European and American parts of the families lasted from 1938 to 1941. The last correspondence between Edith Aberbach in Los Angeles, USA, to her mother Kathrina Aberbach in Schaerbeck, Belgium, via the American Red Cross, dates by the 2nd of April 1942.
