Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
In this collection are personal papers and documents of Heinz Herbert Liepmann and his father Herbert Liepmann, as well as a few items belonging to other family members. The bulk of these documents relate to the Liepmanns' medical education, military service for Germany and the United States, and emigration to the United States in 1938.
This collection contains materials relating to the Auswanderungslehrgut Gross-Breesen, a Silesian training farm created in 1936 by the Reichsvertretung der Juden in Deutschland to provide young Jews agricultural skills in order to ease their emigration from Germany. The materials include a complete set of the Rundbriefe (newsletters) via which former students stayed in touch and documented their life experiences after leaving Gross-Breesen. The collection also includes a handful of additional letters that appear to have been circulated among the same group, as well as some original documents from Gross-Breesen, clippings, reunion materials, and a three-volume compilation of material that includes, among other things, typed copies of the newsletters.
