Scope and content

A large part of the collection relates to restitution claims made by Helene Ursell, Leo Einhorn and Ilse Eton herself. Helene Ursell was represented in Germany by a former family friend and lawyer, the previous mayor of Attendorn. Her claim was for the loss of property, including furnishings, paintings, silverware etc. and the legacy of her parents. She also brought a case for her pension claims as the widow of Siegfried Ursell. \r\n\r\n Leo Einhorn started his claim in 1955 and he went through the United Restitution Office (URO) who represented his claim, mainly compensation for his imprisonment and also his life in hiding between 1940 and 1945 in Berlin. Bruce and Ilse represented his interests throughout the case. He also claimed for the loss of his furrier business including a warehouse and smaller items, such as a radio, a fur coat and silverware. \r\n\r\nIlse Eton was represented by a family friend in Germany, who helped her to file a claim for her loss of education and therefore loss of professional opportunities. She later on took the opportunity to pay towards a German pension. \r\n\r\nFrom the mid-1980s onward, Ilse Eton became involved with researchers working on Holocaust rememberance and memorials in Germany, particularly with those active in Düsseldorf and the Jawne School in Cologne. Some of her letters contain information not just about her own experiences but that of other refugees. Her work for the Society for the Protection of Science and Learning (SPSL) is mentioned but not in any detail.
