Abstract

The Mosse Family Collection documents the social and economic upward mobility of the Jewish family in Germany. Personal papers of Marcus Mosse, a physician in Grätz (then the Grand-Duchy of Posen, now Grodzisk Wielkopolski, Poland), his sons Alfred Mosse, a lawyer, and Rudolf Mosse, a publisher and owner of the Berliner Tageblatt, Hans Lachmann-Mosse and his wife Felicia Mosse, and their daughter Hilde Lachmann-Mosse, a pediatrician and child psychiatrist, comprise the core of the collection. Other members of the family are also represented. The collection also contains records of the advertising agency Annoncen-Expedition Rudolf Mosse, mostly originating from its Zürich office in Switzerland. These records show the efforts of preservation of some of the family and company assets in secure places after the NSDAP take-over in Germany in 1933. The collection consists mainly of correspondence, personal items, newspaper clippings, photographs, and audio tapes.
