Will Bow in November Mr. Jewison, a Methodist, spent months of preparation for the film, steeping himself in Jewish history at the Yivo Institute for Jewish Research in New York and at meet- ings with Hassidic and other rabbis in Israel. There's a Jewish quality — but also a universal quality that can't be disputed when you consider the fact that 'Fiddler on the Roof has been running in 22 different countries with many differ- ent languages.
Topol, an Israeli, had the role on London stage. The cast of predominantly New York actors speak mo- rosely of their four months on location. Frey said, watching Mr. Jewison direct a scene of Russian policemen plunder- ing Tevye's home. Then everyone got quiet, then tense, then bitter.

Leo Baeck informing him of the estab- lishment of an institute bearing his name. It was a great comfort to him to know that one of his own aspirations had come to fruition. We are indeed privileged to do honor to his name. You will also want to know that on the occasion of Leo Baeck' s centenary there will appear a German translation of Rabbi Albert Priedlander 's book "Leo Baeck - Teacher of Theresienstadt ".

On this occasion Dr. Siegfried Moses stated that this is to a great degree "due to the very active cooperation of the women".
We quote this statement here to show to our ladies that their efforts to win new members not only for the Women's Auxiliary but for the entire Institute has received "world- wide" recognition. As an example of the ladies' efficiency: Of nine prospective members invited to the Luncheon and Guided Tour in March, 3 guests were immediately signed up as full members and 6 as members of the Auxiliary. Al- together the Women's Auxiliary has now over members.
When today we mention only the names of the WA President Charlotte Elsas, her loyal assistant and treasurer Jessie Vorst and the chairman of the membership committee Cis Rothenstein, we know that we owe our thanks to many more, especially to the members of the hospitality and volunteer committees who helped the Institute on twenty occa- sions during this academic year.
But our space is limited and therefore we just say: "Thanks to all of you". The Spring Membership Meeting on April 25 could again boast a full house. Fred Grubel, the Institute's Execu- tive Director, addressed the audience of over 60 women with a stimulating report on: "Adventures in Collecting", describ- ing the curious chain of circumstances un- der which some of the archival collections found their way to the "House on 73rd Street".
Wc refrain from a detailed re- port for a very egotistic reason: We want to print some of the stories occasionally in these pages. The request by the audi- ence to hear more of the same at future gatherings was the best proof that wc hit it right when we chose this topic. Grube 1 : May I thank you again for your wonderful lecture before the Women's Auxiliary membership on April 25, The reaction was unanimously favorable and, as you heard yourself, a repeat performance would be most welcome.
Elsas: The Women 1 s Auxiliary and most particularly you yourself earnifour sincere thanks for the gracious, splendid and very tasty hospitality. It was in every respect an excellent conclusion of a memorable afternoon. Also my personal thanks. Her selection as well as her presentation were warmly received by the audience. Your help will be welcome in serving as a hostess at the various affairs arranged by the Women's Auxiliary as well as in preparing our annual theatre-party.
You might also be interested in collecting rare family documents and books for the archives and library of our Institute or in helping us to interest new members, and sometimes, we just need envelope stuf fers Mrs. Liesel Steinberger, Chairman of volunteers will be pleased to hear from you. We hope you enjoyed our Luncheon and Guided Tour as much as we enjoyed having you as our guest. After you have joined we will send you immediately various invitations to lectures and our volunteer chairman will contact you when we need help.
We also hope that you will be able to assist the Institute in making new friends and, last, but not least, help us to find material per- taining to our work. Although other similar organizations have lost members during recent times, this has not been true of either the Auxiliary or the Insti- tute itself. On September 20, the group held its fall membership meeting with Charlotte Elsas, president; and Edith Brunner and Jessie Vorst-Rubinstein, vice presidents; reporting on the Auxiliary's progress and activities.
Fancille Hlavaty, a well- known lecturer who addressed the group several years ago, delivered an extensive lecture on "Jewish Women in World Literature. Her profiles were especially interesting as they included not only a portrait of these women, but also a discussion of the his- torical role they played during their life- time. A lively question and answer period was a good indication of how the audi- ence had been moved by the talk and of their interest. He was dead less than two years when the Nazi blight spread over his native land and many of his works were destroyed or disappeared in the Hitlerites' attempt to eradicate all things that were Jewish or were not to their liking.
Despite efforts in post-war Ger- many to make amends a scholarly mono- graph or a catalogue raison nc of sur- viving works is still overdue. The Leo Baeck Institute, in assembling a selection of Ury's works in American collections, as well as some owned by a German connoisseur, hopes to focus at- tention on him so that a larger exhibition may one day be staged here to acquaint the American public more fully with the oeuvrc of this pioneer of modern art.
Indeed, Ury was an unfortunate genius. His importance was not recog- nized in his native Germany until he had reached sixty and had only one more decade to live. In the Nazi period his creations were, of course, taboo, be- cause their maker had been Jewish; but even if he had been an "Aryan," they would have been condemned, because in- stead of adhering to the finicky Natural Dr. He has lectin ed at many museums and universities and is the author of more than twenty books on art. To celebrate the centennial of the artist's birth, West Ber- lin's National-Galerie dedicated a special room to his work.

To this day, Ury has remained virtu- ally unknown outside his native land. Yet he was an emi- nent artist, whose acomplishments were great, and would have been even greater, had not a combination of unfortunate circumstances and crippling character traits hampered the full growth and development of his unusual skill, of his remarkable sensitivity. Ury was born at Birnbaum, a small town east of Berlin in the province of Posen, and, when still a boy, was brought to the Imperial capital by his widowed mother. Little is known about his first eighteen years.
He went to Duesseldorf to study painting, and then spent close to a decade traveling from place to place, with lengthy stops at Brussels, Paris, Berlin and Munich, in each city furiously engaged in the task of learning, and, with the technique so acquired, putting down on canvas what he had seen and, especially felt. His wanderjahre ended when he took up residence in Berlin in , to stay there until his death, forty- odd years later. Among those who were quick to recognize his talent were Adolf von Menzel and Max Liebermann, four- teen years Ury's senior regrettably, for reasons not entirely known, the friend- ship between Liebermann and Ury was abruptly replaced by a senseless hostility.
Ury's life was "uneventful", unless one considers the creation of each of the many pictures that came out of his large studio an event of greater significance than the dramatic behavior of such fellow-Bohemians as Van Gogh, Tou- louse-Lautrec and Modigliani, all of whom went to early graves. Ury's man- ners antagonized those who could have become close friends; luckily, his exist- ence was blessed by a woman who self- lessly tried to smoothen life for her most difficult, most restless, most irasci- ble friend.
He was often hungry, often sick. When success finally came, he was unable to enjoy it, and he continued to live like a pauper even when his pictures were in great demand and brought high prices. Ury's work serves as a link between Impressionism and the ensuing Ex- pressionist school of painting. His early work was in the realistic vein yet his application of bright color had a variety, a richness, an "outlandish" quality that made it objectionable to the more con- servative German collectors. He loved to paint peasants, landscapes, cityscapes, flowers. Among his relatively few early admirers was the critic Oskar Bie, who called his landscapes Gebete einer far- bentrunkenen Seele, prayers of a color- intoxicated soul, and added, "To be sur- rounded by these things is to be sur- rounded by peace and beauty.
Unlike the French masters, he did not confine himself to the hues found in the spectrum of sunlight, but used much black and white and their inter- mediates. His temperament did not allow him to confine himself to minute brush- strokes; he criss-crossed the canvas with broad bold strokes that anticipated the vigor and fervor of the members of the Bruecke. Ury was extremely versatile. Though we now have only a fraction of his total output, his surviving oils, aquarelles, gouaches, etchings, lithographs and draw- ings are sufficient to prove his artistry and virtuosity.
His glimpses of the charms of Italy, of the Berlin Grune- wald forest, of North German lakes and birch trees, and of sites in London covered with mist and fog reveal an un- excelled poetry. But he became known for his night scenes, and at one time his vistas of nocturnal Berlin were in demand for the living-room of every cul- tured Jewish bourgeois in Berlin. Indeed, he was celebrated as the painter of rain-swept slippery pavement, under the flickering lamps, often with a lonely figure braving the weather.
Some of these pictures were painted from the window of his combined home and atelier on Nollendorfplatz. They are the love songs of a solitary soul, addressed to a city he would never leave except for short excursions. Like Liebermann, he was a combination of a proud Ber- liner and a proud Jew. But while Lie- bermann rarely dealt with Jewish themes, they are frequent in the oeuvre of Ury, an ardent reader of the Bible which, in his words, was "the most beautiful book ever created.
His work expresses the long range of human emotion from deep melancholy to gay exuberance. The best among his pictures will become immortal as testimonies of a rare, sensitive and easily hurt man, and as a panorama of a time and a city that are no more. It sponsors research projects on these subjects.
In line with these objectives, the Leo Baeck Institute is pleased to present works of art by Lesser Ury, one of the great German-Jewish painters at the turn of the century. Banned during the Nazi period, his work was only recently re-discovered by art institutes and collectors in Germany and other countries.

Muehsam's professional career began 60 years ago immediately after receiving a doctorate of jurisprudence at the University of Erlangen when she worked in the legal ottice of the Berliner Morgenpost, a newspaper of the Ullstein Verlag. For the next ten years, while actively engaged in German political life, Mrs.
Muehsam served the Ullstein organiza- tion in various editorial and management capacities. Among her political posts during that period was that of "Vorsitzer der Deutschen Juristinnen Vereins. V, Zeitung, the organ of the Central Verein, where she later served as editor. Her affiliation with this major Jewish newspaper continued until Mrs. Muehsam emigrated to the United States in Muehsam joined the staff of the Leo Baeck Institute at its founding in , and remained until her recent retirement in January, Muehsam received a warm tribute from all her colleagues at a special luncheon in her honor held at the Institute on December Max Gruenewald, president of the New York Institute, likened the occasion to the history of the Institute itself.
Both, he pointed out, commemorated a "farewell and continuation" — an ending and a new beginning. The metaphor was timely as Mrs. Muehsam, who retired from her staff position on January 1, , now takes on new responsibilities as a member of the Institute's Board of Directors. The luncheon was marked by tributes recognizing her many contributions to the Institute and fond recollections of the years she spent as such a "vital force in this quiet Institute. This building remains yours," Dr. Ernest Hamburger, a member of the Executive Committee began as he re- called his long friendship with Mrs.
Muehsam — first in Germany during the years she was active in politics and later at the Institute where she has worked since its founding in as editor of the LBI NEWS and close asso- ciate to the Institute's director. In his warm and touching remarks, Dr. Hamburger spoke of the unique role Mrs. Muehsam has played as a member of the Institute's family.
As thoughtful friend, close colleague, patient listener and advisor, and dependable source of information and answers to innumerable questions, Mrs. Muehsam will always occupy a very special place in the hearts of all her colleagues. The luncheon took place just two days before Mrs. Muehsam celebrated the 60th anniversary of having received her Doctorate of Law degree. And Mr. Fred Grubel, secretary of the Institute, opened his remarks by congratulating Mrs.
Muehsam on having long ago attained the balance between career and family that so many women are trying to achieve today. He then recalled their many talks together — exchanging ideas about plans for the Institute and how best to imple- ment them. Use Blumenthal-Weiss, the Institute's reference librarian who is also in charge of memoirs, spoke both on behalf of the staff and as a long-time personal friend of Margaret Muehsam. Marx, the Institute's accountant, offered the final tribute and toast. Deeply moved by the remarks of her friends and colleagues, Mrs. Muehsam spoke of her long ties with the Institute and particularly with the individuals with whom she has worked so closely.
As so many of the associations began already in Germany — some during her days in politics and others during the period from when she served as editor of the C. Muehsam could not imagine her life without the Leo Baeck Institute. She thanked her parents, who offered the education and opportunity not avail- able to many young women at that time; her husband, who joined her at the luncheon; and the staff for their close collaboration and friendship over the years.

A telephone call to Mr. Bodenheimer in Frankfurt disclosed that, despite his address, he is very much among the living. He is a civil servant and his connection with the old Jewish Ceme- tery is that he is the administrator.

Tluv will join the voluminous archives.. The display items, the tip of Mr. Bodenheimer's iceberg collection, indi- cate the potpourri nature of the new acquisition. There are scrolls written in precise and forbidding ancient goth- ic letters. There are scraps of paper and letters written in flowing hand and illegible hand.
There are eye-catching, happy, small color prints depicting German Jews of the 's, such as a rabbi speaking with women, a huck- ster, a baker, a beggar. A small piece of paper is a receipt to "Jew Leib Mauth," verifying rhat he had paid 17 kreutzers for the special road toll levied on Jews There are letters of more recent provenance. The note sent by Disraeli, and headed "confidential," tries to brace a gentleman for the fact that the Prime Minister might not show up to speak at some meeting of some society. The gentleman should not feel "ill-used" should pressure of business prevent him from appearing, the note says.
Nothing to do with German Jews, but interesting anyway. Bodenheimer said he picked up his material at auctions and collectors' clubs. He was pleased that this first collection had found an American home. Blumen thai -Weiss has graciously consented to follow up her lecture, given last year for the Women's Auxiliary.

A collection of photographs taken inside a Nazi German death camp, it is the only surviving pictorial evidence with the exception of four surreptitious photographs taken by Sonderkommandos of the extermination process from inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp…. The album has 56 pages and photographs. They document the disembarkation of the Jewish prisoners from the train boxcars, followed by the selection process, performed by doctors of the SS and wardens of the camp, which separated those who were considered fit for work from those who were to be sent to the gas chambers.
The photographer followed groups of those selected for work, and those selected for death to a birch grove just outside the crematoria where they were made to wait before being killed. The photographer also documented the workings of an area called Canada, where the looted belongings of the prisoners were sorted before transport to Germany.

Recovering from illness in a vacated barracks of the SS, Jacob found the album in a cupboard beside her bed. Inside, she found pictures of herself, her relatives, and others from her community. The coincidence was astounding, given that the Nordhausen-Dora camp was over km mi away, and that over 1, , people were killed at Auschwitz…. Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld visited Lili in and convinced her to donate the album to Yad Vashem. Includes laid in copies of articles and promotional items from about the book.

The first Jews who had received call-up orders arrived two days later, and the first train to Auschwitz left on August 4.
This building was chosen for two reasons. After the roundups started, the Jews were taken by trucks to the inner square inside the barracks where armed SS were awaiting them. After being registered and stripped of their identity papers and last personal possessions, the prisoners had to wear a card around their neck with their number for the next deportation train. There were various categories of prisoners, the biggest of which were those marked for direct deportation.
