Notes
Horizontal and vertical fold divides paper in four. Folds are fixed with tape. Circular official stamp at the bottom left hand corner with number 521 and inscription Austrian census. Notice is not signed. Pencil handwritten notes on back. The notice informs the addressee of the upcoming election for the representation of Jews in Vienna and of the candidacy of the sender for this election. The writing on the back contains information about Franzi (Franny) Goldberger and another person. Narrative: Charlotte Urban, originally called Liselotte Goldberger, was born in 1919 in Vienna, Austria. Her parents were Yaakob and Franzi Goldberger. She lived with her family in an apartment on Staudinger Gasse in Brigittenau, which was a mostly-Jewish area. She considered herself more Viennese, and her first language was German. In a statement she says she remembers when the Germans invaded Austria during the Anschluss. One day, she and her mother were ordered out of their building by the SA and forced to scrub the pavement in front of a crowd. Afterwards the commander wrote them a receipt for their work on a piece of cigarette paper. Charlotte kept it until her death. Her father had made it to England, and was working to get her and her mother visa. He was away during the Kristallnacht. They remained safe because their land lady, Frau Grabner, had a son in the Nazi party and would use that to discourage troops from coming into their room. When Charlotte got her papers her mother decided to stay with her family. They parted at the station, and Charlotte never saw her again. Liselotte later discovered that her mother had been deported to Theresienstadt in October 1942. Charlotte changed her name to Charlotte Goldhill and married Joseph Urban in 1951. She became a Canadian citizen in 1959.
