Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection consists of letters written to Marie Raleigh by her nephew, Dieter Hankel, and other members of his family living in Berlin during the years 1931-1959. Although there was no contact during the war years (1940-1944), letters from Hankel deal with prewar Germany, his membership in the Hitler Jugend, his capture as a lieutenant in Hitler's army near the English Channel, and his subsequent stay in England as a prisoner of war. Post-war correspondence detail the severe economic plight of the family, his securing work as an English teacher, the difficult exams he passed in order to study at the Lehrerbildungsanstalt, a teacher's university in Esslinger. Letters from other members of the family also deal with economic difficulties and their appreciation for the food and clothing sent by Marie Raleigh.
