Report on the Status of the Jewish Congregation in Hamburg, November 17, 1952

Source Description

For what purpose the report was written in November 1952 is unclear; the handwritten note indicates that it was sent to Erich Lüth, head of the State Press Office and co-founder of the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation. The brief text provides information about the social composition of the congregation and the resulting challenges of providing for those in need, which, as the report states, often included returnees. Further sources on issues of dealing with returnees from the perspective of the Jewish Congregation can be found here.
