Dear Czernowitzers,

This is the latest request concerning the museum. We will discuss the
details of these displays when we go to Chernivtsi, but meanwhile,
please let me know as soon as possible what materials relating to this
period you have in your possession, or think can be found in
archives. I will ask whether she is looking for scans or originals.
All documents, images, and objects will be extremely useful. Florence
has , of course, written on this period, as have Leo and I, and so
have some of you in your memoirs. It is not a question of historical
details, therefore, but of objects that can be displayed to illustrate
the period.

More soon, best, Marianne

> Mr. Zisels will be in the US from the 26th of April to the 6th of
> August. You could give him any materials that you feel are necessary.
