Abstract: Julius and Helen K. Weil were German-born Jews who settled in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1941 where their achievements in geriatric social work earned them national recognition. Julius served as executive director (1941-1968), and Helen as director of social services (1943-1968), at Montefiore Home, an old age home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. They then joined the staff of the Cornelius Schnurmann House, a housing community for senior citizens in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, as executive director and social services director. The collection consists of newspaper clippings, correspondence (in English and German), family records, patents, a doctoral dissertation, writings, and restitution claims. The family records, in German, for the Kahn and Weil families include inofrmation on births and deaths, a list of Holocaust victims, and a Weil family history. The restitution claims files cover claims made to the Federal German Republic by Helen and Julus Weil, and by Hermine Cahn, Helen's sister, for losses suffered in Germany during the government of the National Socialists.
