Arno Herzberg Collection

 Collection
Identifier: AR 25299

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists almost entirely of newspaper clippings of Arno Herzberg’s articles. The articles deal with the Jewish situation in Germany in the 1930s, Israel and her problems with the outside world, Jewish holidays, and a small amount of articles dealing with economic issues, such as taxes.

Other materials include a small amount of correspondence, manuscripts (all the manuscripts are photocopies lacking any annotations or remarks), and a memoir depicting the Hess family members between 1930 and the 1940s, including their imprisonment in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

There are no materials dealing with Arno Herzberg’s involvement with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and very few materials pertaining to his primary profession, such as accounting.
