Biographical Note

The Pinkus family were textile manufacturers. The factory in Neustadt, Upper Silesia (now Prudnik, Poland), was one of the largest producers of fine linens in the world. Joseph Pinkus became a partner in the firm S. Fränkel when he married Auguste Fränkel, the daughter of the owner. Their son Max Pinkus (1857-1934) was director until 1926. Their daughter Hedwig married Paul Ehrlich, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1908.

Max Pinkus was a noted patron of the arts and literature and of commercial, political, and civic life in Neustadt and Upper Silesia generally. He was noted for amassing a large library of books by Silesian authors, both known and obscure, as well as several document collections pertaining to Silesian history. He wrote manuscripts on these topics and on the textile trade in Silesia. His library was eventually dispersed to different repositories within Silesia after its confiscation by the Nazis in the late 1930s. Attesting to the importance of Max Pinkus to cultural affairs in Silesia are his relationships with Gerhart Hauptmann, Hermann Stehr, and many other notable figures. Stehr dedicated the story Der Geigenmacher to Pinkus; Hauptmann was present at Max Pinkus's funeral in 1934 and reportedly modeled the protagonists of Vor Sonnenuntergang and Die Finsternisse after Pinkus.

Max Pinkus's son Hans Pinkus (1891-1977) managed the family company from 1926-1938 until he was forced out after the company's total aryanization in the wake of Kristallnacht. During the period from 1934-1938 he had successfully defended his family's interest in the company against an increasingly hostile board, which had been introducd after the company went public in 1934. Hans Pinkus, like his father, was very active in civic and cultural affairs, notably as an advocate for former prisoners of war. He had spent part of the first World War in internment camps for prisoners of war in France and Switzerland. Like his father, he was interested in local history, and he devoted much of his spare time to genealogical research. Hans Pinkus was able to remain in Germany until a relatively late date, but owing to the increasingly hostile climate he left Germany at the end of 1938 and emigrated to the United Kingdom with his family in 1939. During the 1950s, he unsuccessfully attempted to rebuild the firm in Bavaria, and he died in Britain in 1977.

Scope and Contents

The collection contains papers including vital documents, membership cards, awards, medals, diaries, travel journals, legal papers, tax records, wills, genealogical tables and family histories, along with supporting documents regarding the Pinkus family and related families, including the Deutsch and Fraenkel families and the Eger-Gans-Gansmann family. Family correspondence is supplemented by several memoirs and diaries. The family history is also greatly enriched by the presence of hundreds of photographs of family members, their friends and associates, of the family art collection, and of their factories, homes, travels, and other activities.

Both Max Pinkus and especially Hans Hubert Pinkus were interested in genealogy, and series VII documents their research efforts, which encompass not just close relations but a broad array of families, primarily in the region of Upper Silesia. A separate series documents Hans Hubert Pinkus’s research efforts into the history of the Jewish community of Silesia, and includes official proclamations, documents, and records stretching back to the 18th century, as well as photocopies, clippings, and other research material. Finally, Series V, Felix Pinkus, contains research materials and manuscripts on Paul Ehrlich, Max Pinkus’s brother-in-law. Hans Hubert Pinkus’s papers include some documents on the Paul Ehrlich Stiftung (foundation) as well.

The collection also contains records of businesses owned by the Pinkus family from the mid-nineteenth century through the period after World War II, including correspondence, manuscripts, business reports, tax and financial records, legal, advertising material, and newspaper clippings from the firms of S. Fraenkel Neustadt, Spinnerei Vorwärts Brackwede, Schlesische Flachs-Werke Kaundorf, Süddeutsche Leinenweberei Augsburg, Schlesische Feinweberei, S. Fränkel Augsburg, S. Fränkel Garnbleiche Schönwalde (Kreis Neiße), and Hronover Baumwollspinnerei. Two manuscripts on the history of the textile industry in Silesia and on the history of the firm S. Fraenkel add to the documentation. The final series also contains oversized materials, including sample books, ticket stubs, building plans, scrapbooks, and a ledger, almost all of which relate to the family businesses. Although materials on the family businesses are scattered throughout the first four series, the papers of Hans Hubert Pinkus (series IV) are of especial note because they contain several appraisal reports, audit reports, balance sheets, and inventories of the family businesses used during the process of filing restitution claims after the war. Hans Pinkus's papers also contain materials documenting his attempts to revive the family business in Bavaria after the war.

The Pinkus family was actively involved in the civic and cultural life of Breslau, Neustadt, and Upper Silesia and Prussia in general. Max Pinkus was noted as an avid collector of books and materials on local history; an inventory of his personal library, dispersed after seizure by the Nazis, is available in Series III, subseries 5. As a patron of the arts, he also corresponded with notable literary figures like Hermann Stehr and the family of Gerhart Hauptmann. Although there are few items of correspondence with Hauptmann himself, the presence of a few poems he dedicated to Max Pinkus attests to their friendship. Max Pinkus was also active in Jewish community affairs, in the local chamber of commerce, and with various local charities. A substantial amount of his personal correspondence also documents his efforts to benefit German prisoners of war during World War I, spurred on by the capture of his son Hans Hubert. Finally, a substantial amount of Max Pinkus’ documents, maps, and official correspondence pertain to issues surrounding the family estate Deutsch Krawarn, near Ratibor (Racibórz).

Max’s son Hans Hubert Pinkus carried on his father's tradition of civic involvement, with an especial emphasis on Jewish community affairs and on his role as an advocate for former prisoners of war. Other materials from before World War II include various manuscripts and diaries, including the diary he kept as a prisoner of war in France, a large postcard collection depicting artworks, business correspondence relating especially to the Hronover Baumwollenspinnerei. Further personal materials document his university career, including membership in the fraternity Sulfuria and a trial for dueling, as well as his three marriages and amicable divorce from Elfriede von Vietinghoff (née Hess). Also in his personal correspondence are various awards amd letters of recognition for his service during World War I, including several from the Nazi government. Hans Pinkus oversaw the family business until he was forced to resign after its forced Aryanization in the late 1930s. Thereafter he fled to England, and many of his papers, including passports, visas, various identification cards, and official correspondence, document his family’s emigration to England and their naturalization as English citizens.
