Dreyfuss-Isenberg family. Collection
SS-Sammellager Mecheln (Dossin barracks)
Daily life, Deportees, Transit camps
The collection contains six letters and one card. Four letters and perhaps the card were sent by the Dreyfuss family - consisting of father Heinrich Dreyfuss, mother Dina Isenberg and daughters Leonie and Lotte (Lottie) - after they had moved to Leuven, to their former next-door neighbours, the Perck family. Two other letters were sent by the Dreyfuss family, while detained at the Dossin barracks, to their friends the Perck family and the Samuel family.
