This file of papers regard Elisabeth Wolff’s legal attempt to secure restitution for her suffering at the hands of the Nazis during World War II. In it are references to the hardships the Wolffs faced, including a description of Roderich’s arrest by the Gestapo and deportation to Buchenwald concentration camp, forced emigration to the Netherlands, and his compulsory work in forced labor camps such as Amstelveen. The documents indicate that Elisabeth developed an extreme nervous condition during this time. She also suffered from poor dental care. [Partial transcription of German original provided.]
