Anna Peters fonds

  • CA MHCA Volume 5425: 8-13
  • Fonds
  • 1933-1948, predominant 1945-1948

This fonds has mainly the correspondence (1945-1948) between Anna Peters in Germany, her sister Maria (Peters) Bergen in Canada and her nephew John Bergen, at first in Oldenburg, Germany, later back in Canada, and her niece, Margaret Bergen in Canada. Anna's first letter to her sister Maria Bergen after the war was sent along with a Canadian soldier stationed in Wiesmoor, who was returning to Canada. No correspondence was yet allowed between Germany and Canada at the time. Maria was able to send a letter to her son John Bergen, who was in the Dental Corps, as a member of the occupation forces stationed in Oldenburg, Germany, and through him contact could be made and letters received. For several months all letters from Anna Peters (Germany) to her sister Maria (Canada) were forwarded via John Bergen in Oldenburg, Germany.

There are also three letters which pre-date the 1945-1948 period -- one written by Anna's brother, Anton Peters in 1934, another by her father Abram Peters in 1933, and one by Anna herself as a 13 year-old, describing their dire circumstances having the last potatoes, etc. taken by the communists and begging for a dollar (1933).
