Letters written by Alfred Leopold in which he recounts the measures he went through to escape the German forces in Europe. In 1936 he left for Brazil but was forced to return to Europe when his visa expired. He spent the next years in France, but was eventually interned in southern France in 1942 September. He escaped the camp, and assisted by friends made it to the Swiss border, which he crossed in stealth at night. In Switzerland he lived in a work camp near Zurich until the end of the war; Joseph Schmidt was also interned in this same camp.Processed for digitizationSent for digitizationReturned from digitizationLinked to online manifestationdigitize
