Full title: Rosenberg, Marie (fl 1889-1962): restitution claim
Date(s): 1937-1962
Level of description: collection
Extent: 1 folder
Name of creator(s): Rosenberg | Marie | fl 1889-1962 | née Marcus


Administrative/Biographical history:

The restitution claim by Marie Rosenberg was rejected by the Entschädigungsamt, Berlin, on the grounds that the last known address of the wholesale livestock business, of which she was part owner, and on which the claim was based, was in the Russian zone of Berlin.

Marie Rosenberg (née Marcus) was born on 19 January 1889. Her husband, Louis, died in 1927. They had two children, Rolf Moritz (later Stanley Sloane) and Ruth. It is assumed that the family is Jewish, though there is no evidence of this. She appears to have left Germany shortly after 15 Dec 1939. The destination is not clear, but subsequent, post-war documentation reveals that she was resident in London and that she remained there until at least 1955 but no later than 1962, during which time she was in New York, living close to her son. The fate of her daughter is not known, beyond the fact that by 1937 she was married to someone by the name of Schmey. The fate of the family after 3 Apr 1962 (the date of the Entschädigungsamt's rejection of her restitution claim) is not known.


Scope and content/abstract:

Family and business papers of Marie Rosenberg, 1937-1962, collected in support of a restitution claim from the German government, including a doctor's certificate, Nov 1939, which attributes her heart trouble in part to recent psychological troubles; a complete inventory of the possessions which she was to take abroad, 15 Dec 1939 and the decision of the Entschädigungsamt, Berlin regarding her restitution claim, 3 Apr 1962.
