Rosenberg Letters

Description

The 105 letters in this collection document the experience of a German Jewish family in the years immediately before, during, and shortly after World War II. Nathan and Johannna Rosenberg of Breisach, Germany, had three sons: Julius (1900-1942), Eugen (1901-1964), and Alfred (1911-2005). Eugen left for Palestine in 1935. Alfred, with his wife, her parents, and her brother, immigrated to the United States in August 1938. Julius remained in Germany with his parents and was murdered at Auschwitz in August 1942. The letters were written to Alfred by his brothers, his parents, and other relatives between 1938 and 1946. Most of the letters are from Julius and many of these he wrote from the labor camp in Gurs, France, to which all of the Jews in Breisach were deported in October 1940.

Moses Maimonides, Unparalleled Editions

Description

One of the greatest Jewish sages of all times, Moses Maimonides, was not only an outstanding legal authority, compelling philosopher, and accomplished physician, but also the most influential Jewish spiritual leader of his age. The present selection of his works is wide in scope, since it embraces virtually the entire spectrum of Maimonides’ literary output. The sources collected here include the newly digitized original Unparalleled Editions collection of 290 microfiches containing 58 titles which are mostly Hebrew printed editions as well as imprints from the 16th up to and including the 20th century and examples of bilingual editions containing Hebrew and either Latin, Judeo-German, or French text. Added to the original collection from the British Library are further incunabula which expand and enhance access to this important leader’s life work.
