Archive belonging to Emile and Oskar Schindler, relating to their move to Argentina after World War II. While Oskar Schindler's work in saving thousands of Jews during World War II is well known, his wife Emilie worked tirelessly as well. One of the survivors shared his recollection of her, ''She got a whole truck of bread from somewhere on the black market. They called me to unload it. She was talking to the SS and because of the way she turned around and talked, I could slip a loaf under my shirt. I saw she did this on purpose. A loaf of bread at that point was gold...There is an old expression: Behind the man, there is the woman, and I believe she was the great human being.''

Archive includes: (1-2) stamped boarding documents for Oskar and Emilie Schindler dated 4 October 1949, from Genoa, Italy to Las Palmas, Rio de Janeiro, Santos and Montevideo. The card for Oskar Schindler lists his name as well as that of fellow traveler Edmund Horowitz, his close friend and one of the Jewish people that that he rescued from the Nazis. Each document measures 6.75'' x 9.75''. Folds and creasing, in very good plus condition.
