This photograph, on the reverse side of which the text quoted above can be read, is currently in the exhibition on the famous Ephrussi family and the perhaps even more famous hare at The Jewish Museum in New York. Gisela, Viktor and Emmy’s second daughter, who married Alfredo at the Vienna Stadttempel in 1920, fled with her family to Spain and South America, while Elisabeth found a new home in England. Her father Viktor, who had been expelled from Vienna, died there in March 1945 without ever having returned home. Elisabeth is the grandmother of Edmund de Waal, who together with his father Viktor de Waal, a high dignitary of the Anglican Church, donated part of the family archive to the Jewish Museum Vienna in 2017. The famous hare is a Japanese netsuke loaned to the museum along with 157 other objects of its kind for ten years. The lawyer Elisabeth de Waal fought for the return of the stolen goods, and in 1950 the Palais on Vienna’s Ringstrasse was restituted to the family.
