1Title:  Nora and Solomon Simon Papers     
 Creator:  Simon, Nora and Solomon 
 Dates:  1915-1993 
 Abstract:  Nora Katz Simon (1903-1996), a German-born Jewish woman, immigrated from the German Reich to the United States in the late 1930s. While living in New York City, she met Solomon Simon (1901-1988), a fellow German-born Jew, who had recently fled the German Reich as well. After moving from New York City to Cleveland, Ohio, they married in 1940. From the United States they sent financial support to Nora's family, especially her uncle, Leopold Katz, who was able to flee Nazi Germany and escape to the Netherlands in 1938, from where he eventually made his way to Palestine. In Palestine, Leopold witnessed the founding of the state of Israel, where he remained together with Nora's father and their families. Both of them kept in close contact with Nora and Solomon, documented by the correspondence present in this collection. Nora survived her husband, who died in 1988, by nine years. The collection consists of certificates, correspondence, an obituary, and a will.

 Abstract:  Eleanor Rosenfeld Gerson continued her family's tradition of activism in Jewish and other educational, philanthropic, and social service organizations in Cleveland, Ohio. She served as a trustee and chairperson of the School on Magnolia, an alternative school, from 1973-1982. In 1985 the school was renamed the Eleanor Gerson School. Other organizations she was active in included the American Civil Liberties Union of Greater Cleveland, the Women's Community Foundation, the Jewish Family Service Association, the Jewish Community Federation, Mount Sinai Hospital, the Free Clinic of Greater Cleveland, the Heights Area Project, and the Cleveland Scholarship Program. Eleanor Rosenfeld married Benjamin Gerson in 1937, and had four children. She was the great-granddaughter of Edward Lazarus and Henrietta Wilmersdorfer Rosenfeld, who had immigrated to New York City from Uhlfeld, Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. Their son, Louis Rosenfeld, married Frederica Fatman, daughter of Joseph Fatman, in 1874. Joseph Fatman and his brother, Aaron, were owners of the firm of Fatman and Company, tobacco dealers. In December 1862, they were among the thirty Jewish merchants ordered out of Paducah, Kentucky, in the Department of the Tennessee by General U.S. Grant's Order Number 11.

Bertha Rosenfeld was a founder of the Council of Jewish Women's Jewish Big Sister organization, and was active in other Jewish and women's groups. Bertha's parents, Emanuel and Lena Rosenfeld, came to Cleveland in the 1870s from Germany and were members of Temple Tifereth Israel. Lena Rosenfeld was an active member of the Cleveland Section, National Council of Jewish Women and The Temple's Women's Association. The collection consists of correspondence, legal and genealogical documents, diaries, account books, and newspaper and other clippings of the Rosenfeld, Fatman, and Gerson family members.
