Highlights from the Archive: The Lachmann Family Papers

Arno, Lilly and Leo Lachmann emigrated from Berlin, Germany, where their family had lived for generations, to Shanghai in 1939. During World War II, Shanghai became a haven for Jewish refugees from Germany, Austria and Poland because it was the only place in the world where one could land without a visa or official paper of any kind. Highlighting documents from “The Lachmann Family Papers,” a collection held in the Holocaust Museum Houston archives, this exhibit illustrates how difficult Jewish emigration from Germany was during the Nazi regime.
