Sign placed in Jeifa Tailor Shop, in French and German, circa 1940s
Scope and Contents
This collection dates from 1907 to 1947 and consists of articles, ephemera, photographs, and personal documents relating to the Jeifa family's life before and after the Holocaust. The majority of the materials are in French, with occasional occurrences of German, English, and Hebrew. The collection was primarily assembled by Michel Jeifa, and the majority of the materials pertain to him and his parents Bernard and Adele Jeifa. This collection shows aspects of the Jeifa family’s life before the war, such as Bernard Jeifa’s business cards and pre-war photographs, as well as evidence of the persecution and tragedy they experienced during the war, such as a sign used to identify their business as being owned by Jews, deportation orders for Bernard and Adele, and false identification documents used by Michel to avoid arrest.
