Source Description

Martha Glass wrote this travel diary during her crossing from Bremerhaven to New York in February 1947. Beginning with the train ride from Bremen-Gröpelingen to the ship in Bremerhaven and ending with her arrival in New York harbor on March 13, 1947. With this trip, Martha Glass left Germany and began a new phase of her life in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York, where she lived until her death in 1959. The thin travel diary was kept in the family and handed over by Barbara Müller-Wesemann to the IGdJ, where two further first-person documents of Martha Glass are kept: the Theresienstadt diaries and the travel report of 1953.
