Biographical Note

Dr. Jacob Jacobson was born in Schrimm (now Śrem, Poland) on November 27, 1888. Jacobson was a historian and archivist, as well as director of the Gesamtarchiv der deutschen Juden from 1920 to 1939. In 1938 he published Jüdische Trauungen in Berlin, 1723-1759. As archivist and historian, he solicited Jewish communities throughout Germany for records, and often retained the most records from smaller Jewish communities in Germany, which made up a significant part of this collection. In May 1943 he was deported to Theresienstadt and after liberation immigrated to Great Britain in 1945. After liberation, Jacobson published two major works, Die Judenbürgerbücher der Stadt Berlin, 1209-1851 (1962) and Jüdische Trauungen in Berlin, 1759-1813 (1968). Jacobson died in Bad Neuenahr on May 31, 1968.

Scope and Content Note

The Jacob Jacobson collection mostly is comprised of records of several Jewish communities assembled by Jacobson himself while working at the Gesamtarchiv der deutschen Juden in Berlin. A huge portion of this collection was taken out of Germany by his wife and child when they immigrated to England in 1939.

Series I contains records of the Jewish community of Berlin from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including census lists, vital registers, cemetery lists and tombstone inscriptions, rabbinical court decisions, among them the divorce case of Simon Veit and his wife, the future Dorothea Schlegel; fliers, budgets, by-laws, and elections to the community executive committee.

Series II includes records of the Jewish communities of Hamburg, Altona, and Wandsbek from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including the minute book of the burial society of the Sephardic Congregation Neve Salom, Altona, and record books (Pinkassim), vital registers, tax-lists, proclamations, letters of protection, financial reports, by-laws, ordinances, private documents, and correspondence of the German-Askenazic communities of Hamburg, Altona, and Wandsbek; photos of gravestones; minutes of the Löb Mindensche Brautstiftung, Altona-Hamburg, as well as records of other communal organizations.

Records of Jewish communities in Central Europe can be found in Series III, including memorial books, correspondence, minutes, financial records, censuses, vital registers, mohel books, and cemetery lists from multiple different Jewish communities in Germany and Prussia; transcriptions of documents, 1797-1806, dealing with the administration of territories annexed by Prussia in the partitioning of Poland, and particularly with the Jewish question.

Records of Jewish organizations from the eighteenth through the twentieth century can be found in several series. Included are the minute book of the Gesellschaft der Freunde, Berlin; the correspondence of the Kassel branch of the Kartell-Convent jüdischer Verbindungen; by-laws, membership lists, or minutes of the tailors' mutual benefit society in Gnesen; the Gesellschaft jüdischer Handwerker, Berlin; the charitable society in Mattenbuden; and the burial societies in Rendsburg and Dyhernfurth.

Letters to Rabbi Leopold Löw, editor of Ben Chananja, and to Rabbi Löw Schwab from individuals are contained in Series V, these individuals include Adolphe Crémieux, Samson Raphael Hirsch, Isaak Marcus Jost, and Ludwig Philippson.

Series VI contains papers of Jacobson's grandfather Marcus Hirsch (1833-1907), chief rabbi in Prague and Hamburg, including correspondence with rabbis and Jewish communities in Altenhofen, Prague, Vienna, and towns in Hungary, and papers of Jacobson's father, Moses Jacobson (1853-c.1930), rabbi in Schrimm, Gnesen, and Hamburg, including a eulogy for Eduard Lasker and a speech on the 125th anniversary of the Bruederverein Gnesen.

Poetry, correspondence, notes, personal papers, clippings and other material from various individuals and communities conclude the collection, including memo by Max Bodenheimer about a meeting of Theodor Herzl with Kaiser Wilhelm II; papers of the bookdealer Julius Harrwitz; genealogical correspondence of Moritz Stern, librarian of the Jewish community of Berlin; eighteenth-century talmudic novellae written by members of the Fliess family; poetry of George Davidsohn, editor and parliamentary deputy for the Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands (SPD); and a manuscript and notes by Selma Stern-Täubler.
