Message from Alfred Schnell (1900-1944) and Eva Schnell (1913-1944) to Max Albert Bredig (1902-1977). Alfred Schnell was a former colleague of Max Bredig. In the early 1940s, Alfred and his wife Eva fled to The Hauge to escape the persecution of the Jewish people. In 1943, Germany invaded the Netherlands and the Schnells went into hiding. In their messages to Max Bredig, they use aliases including Arthur and Erna Dalem, Arthur and Ellen Escaper, and Alfred and Eva Kwik.
In this letter, the Schnells tell Bredig that they are living in the country and are being helped by friends. While the message is dated July 3, 1943, it was not received until November 24, 1943.
