"I too am a totalitarian, I want to rescue the totality of German youth." - Henrietta Szold, 1939

So begins The Archives of Youth Aliyah, 1933-1960 prepared by Lawrence D. Geller, Ph.D. Funded by a generous grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Dr. Geller's guide was published in 1983 on the occasion of the Fiftieth Anniversary of Youth Aliyah's 1933 founding. Of the collection, Dr. Geller wrote, "The archives of Youth Aliyah ...are in the widest, most descriptive sense, the archives of tragedy and hope."

During the intervening years, The Files of Youth Aliyah in the Hadassah Archives have evolved. This current guide reflects the addition of more recently acquired materials, the availability of several yet-to-be processed addendum and corresponding shifts in arrangement. Undiminished, indeed hopefully enhanced, is the documentation of Miss Szold's endeavors to rescue German youth and the archives' legacy of "tragedy and hope."

The following historical overview is based upon Dr. Geller's scholarship in The Archives of Youth Aliyah.

Youth Aliyah was founded in Germany in 1933 by Recha Freier. Following Hitler's rise to power as Chancellor the same year, the political strength of the Nazi party increasingly threatened the stability of European Jewish communities. Thus, Recha Freier's initial concept was to establish a collaborative of Zionist organizations to pool their resources in order to relocate German Jewish children to Palestine pending resolution of the political situation. However, as the Nazi resolve to eradicate the Jewish population became a systemic function, Youth Aliyah became a full-fledged child rescue effort. From 1933-1945, this "coalition" rescued 11,000 Jewish children relocating them to Palestine.

Such profound accomplishment would not have been achieved had it not been for the efforts of Henrietta Szold who in 1934 became the Director of the Youth Aliyah Department in the Central Department for the Settlement of German Jews (later the Youth Department of the Jewish Agency) in Jerusalem. Through Miss Szold's intervention and under the leadership of Hadassah National President Rose Jacobs and Hadassah National Youth Aliyah Committee Chairman Marian G. Greenberg, Hadassah extended itself in 1935 to become the primary fund raising entity for Youth Aliyah in the United States.

The subsequent years, particularly those during the war, were fraught with the unrelenting political and administrative processes necessary to secure the release of Jewish children from detention, death and displaced person camps throughout Europe. The obstacles were not only related to the impact of the War in Europe but also to the British Mandate Government's limitation on immigration to Palestine. The efforts to maintain the process of rescue required an international collaboration between multiple agencies throughout Continental Europe, the United Kingdom, Palestine and the United States.

Moreover, Youth Aliyah strove to provide a true "home-coming" for these displaced children. The files document Hadassah's establishment of youth villages, children's day centers, residential facilities and "foster placements" networks. These efforts required on-going international collaborative efforts in order to establish the infrastructure necessary to fund and maintain these institutions. Additionally, Youth Aliyah developed vocational, educational, therapeutic and rehabilitative programs to assist the children toward a holistic integration into the community.

Since its inception in 1933, the mission of Youth Aliyah has not waned. To the contrary, since the end of the Second World War Youth Aliyah has continued serving Jewish youth communities globally including those in Ethiopia and North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Russia and Asia. The files document these efforts. While The Jewish Agency gradually took on primary programmatic care of Youth Aliyah in the 1990s, today there are over 300,000 Youth Aliyah graduates from over 80 nations and Hadassah continues its essential support toward residential, educational, vocation and therapeutic services for displaced and "at-risk" Jewish youth as a proud partner in the Youth Aliyah movement.

Scope and Content Note

This collection documents the work of Hadassah as part of the Youth Aliyah movement in relocating Jewish children from Europe before and during World War II to new, safe homes in Palestine. It also documents Youth Aliyah organization and activities, and Hadassah's role in it, during the establishment of the State of Israel, through the turbulent period in the Middle East during the 1960s and 1970s, and through mass immigration of the Diaspora from North Africa and the Soviet Union to Israel in the 1980s and 1990s.

In his 1983 guide, The Archives of Youth Aliyah, 1933-1960, Dr. Lawrence D. Geller (then the Archivist and Head of Archives and Research for Hadassah) wrote, "Researchers will find complete correspondence files, reports, essays, and publications on the subject of child rescue in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. There is also much material on Hadassah's role in Youth Aliyah education which was decisive from a planning and financial point of view as well as much material on the major issue of absorption and integration of shattered youth from war torn Europe into a new society. Later, it would deal with the complex absorption, educational, psychological and medical problems of the influx of youth from a variety of cultural backgrounds from North Africa...as well as from Europe and to a lesser degree from all points on the globe. Since 1935, this has been one of the major functions of Hadassah in connection with the Youth Aliyah Department of the Jewish Agency for Israel."

The early materials in the Youth Aliyah Records in the Hadassah Archives include correspondence, financial and statistical data, reports, publicity material, and publications which deal with the process of rescuing the children, transporting them to Palestine, obtaining visas and other documentation for them from the British during the end of the British Mandate in Palestine, and housing them in youth villages among the Jewish settlements of pre-State and Statehood Israel.

Documents related to the war years include material on the rescue of the Teheran Children, the sinking of the S.S. Struma, and personal accounts of survival in the death camps. There is extensive material on Hadassah's interaction with government officials relating to the British Mandate Government's policy of limiting immigration to Palestine. There is also material pertaining to the institutional programs for children including considerations around placement of children in religious versus non-religious communities and families, documents regarding the "Town to Country" movement, and the training of madrichim (youth leaders).

Post-war materials document the liberation of concentration camps, the Israel War for Independence, conditions of refugee services in Europe, as well as the conditions on the ships transporting refugees to Palestine. There are also materials regarding the training of Madrichim (Youth Aliyah instructors who were also group leaders and counselors) and social workers.

Following the crisis of the war years, the Youth Aliyah Records document the development of educational, training, and vocational programs, as well as continuing immigration and refugee efforts with children from North Africa, the Middle East, and the Soviet Union. The work to assist children as they integrated into the community in healthy and productive ways is well articulated here through correspondence, reports, financial plans, pamphlets, articles, and brochures.

Separated Material

Materials in certain formats were removed from RG 1 and placed into the following record groups: RG 17 Printed Materials; RG 18 Audiovisual Materials; RG 21 Architectural Materials; and RG 22 Artifacts and Memorabilia. Folder-level notes, connecting the items to their original folders and context, were added when items were separated. One manuscript box (old box number 67) was removed and added to RG 13 Hadassah Presidents. The box contained papers of Rose Halprin while she served as the Hadassah National Aliyah Chairman in the 1970s. Halprin also served as Hadassah National President from 1932-1934 and again from 1947-1952. Finally, a folder titled "George Abrams, 1966-1967" was removed and placed in the Charlotte Jacobson series of RG 13. It contained two letters from Charlotte Jacobson to George Abrams concerning medical topics and the Kennedy family. From 1965 to 1968, Abrams served as general counsel and staff director of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Refugees. Charlotte Jacobson served as Hadassah National President from 1964 to 1968.

Previous Finding Aids and Concordance

Two finding aids for this collection have been previously prepared. They have been superseded by this finding aid, but both contain historical information that may be of interest.

The printed finding aid of 1983 provides a wealth of information about Youth Aliyah and its records. It can be found here: http://digital.cjh.org/3219264. Please note that this arrangement is no longer valid.

In 2010, the arrangement of the collection was altered slightly from the 1983 arrangement, and an online finding aid created. That finding aid is provided for reference only, and can be found here: http://digital.cjh.org/3219523. Please note that this arrangement is no longer valid.

The concordance links the former box and folder numbers from the 2010 finding aid to the current box and folder numbers in the 2015 finding aid. The concordance is provided for reference and can be used to track previous citations of material in the Youth Aliyah Records in the Hadassah Archives (RG 1).

Processing Information

The Youth Aliyah Records in the Hadassah Archives was originally processed in the early 1980s by Dr. Lawrence Geller and Ira Daly who worked for Hadassah as Archivist and Assistant Archivist, respectively. Hadassah had received a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to process the Youth Aliyah records and produce a comprehensive guide. The guide (or finding aid), The Archives of Youth Aliyah, 1933-1960; Part I: The Years of the Holocaust and Ingathering, was published in 1983 on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the Youth Aliyah movement.

In December 1999, Hadassah and the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) entered an agreement placing the Hadassah Archives on deposit at AJHS for its safekeeping and maintenance. In November 2000, the Hadassah Archives were moved to AJHS under the management of the Director of the Hadassah Archives, Susan Woodland. In 2010 Woodland and Assistant Archivist Margaret Bausman created a new finding aid, based on the 1983 version, which incorporated additional Youth Aliyah records into the collection. This addition comprised Series 33 and 34 of the 2010 finding aid. In 2014, under a new agreement between Hadassah and AJHS, the Hadassah Archives were placed on long-term deposit at AJHS.

In 2015, the Youth Aliyah Records were intellectually rearranged and thirty-four series were revised into three series. The two addendum series (Series 33 and 34 from the 2010 finding aid), comprising unprocessed material, were incorporated into the new arrangement as was approximately 1.5 linear feet of other unprocessed material. Description from the previous finding aids was reused and incorporated into the 2015 finding as much as possible, particularly collection-level description. Series and subseries description was added and collection-level notes pertaining to acquisition, processing, access and use, and related material were added as well. Some folder titles were revised.

The boxes were consolidated to save space and reduce damage to the material. Box and folder numbers were renumbered to create uniform numbering across the entire record group and a concordance was created linking the previous box and folder numbers to the new numbers. Some boxes were replaced and many of the folders were also replaced. Plastic clips and deteriorating plastic sleeves were removed.

Subseries 2: Finances, Fundraising, and Statistics, 1936-1998

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries pertains to Hadassah's fundraising efforts on behalf of Youth Aliyah. For many years, Hadassah was one of the largest financial contributors to Youth Aliyah and the Youth Aliyah movement. Though by the mid-1990s Hadassah's financial contributions to Youth Aliyah had diminished, partly due to the transfer of the administration of Youth Aliyah from the Jewish Agency for Israel to the State of Israel (See Series 1, Subseries 1: Box 85, Folder 5), Youth Aliyah still remained a focus for the organization.

Included are correspondence, minutes, financial reports and data, and statistical reports. The subseries documents Hadassah's Youth Aliyah fundraising activities and programs such as receptions and dinners; Welfare Funds; and its Ima (mother) and Abba (father) programs.

Subseries 3: Publicity and Events, 1936-1996

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

Included are correspondence, articles, reports, press releases, clippings, speeches, and printed material pertaining to Hadassah's efforts to publicize Youth Aliyah aimed to garner interest and support in the United States. Through its national headquarters and its regional chapters, Hadassah organized events, issued news releases, and published articles and printed matter to raise awareness of its role in Youth Aliyah rescue work and immigration, as well as for fundraising purposes. A predominant amount of material in this subseries dates from the years just prior to World War II, to the end of the war, and through the immediate aftermath.

Some of the press releases dating from the 1930s include "Hadassah sent 300 German Children to Palestine;" "Frau Levi-Stein of Berlin to speak here on German youth;" "New York women to aid in the removal of Austrian children;" "Emergency plea for refugee children sent to Evian;" "Austrian mothers receive assurance on fate of Jewish child refugees;" and "Child refugees adrift on Danube to be sent from Austria to Palestine."

The subjects of the clippings include refugee movements, immigration certificate applications, and atrocities committed against the Jewish community in areas of Europe. There are Youth Aliyah articles by Dorothy Bar-Adon, Henrietta Szold, Eliezer Spector, Gerda Luft, S. Adler-Rudel, Braha Habas, and Norman Bentwich. Many of them report on Youth Aliyah history in its first fifteen years and document Youth Aliyah children in Nazi Europe and their adaptation to Palestine's (and later Israel's) environment and social institutions. Titles include "Poles and Persians: Youth Aliyah aboard 'Teti';" "Cyprus and the DP Camps cleared of Jewish orphans;" "Operation Magic Carpet;" "Youth Aliyah at work in France." The speeches include a manuscript of a speech delivered by the Baroness Édouard de Rothschild on the work of Youth Aliyah in France before and after the Nazi invasion, circa 1941; and speeches by Vera Weitzmann, Marian Greenberg, and Bertha Schoolman.

Subseries 4: Social Service Case Files and Case Histories, 1940-1959

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries contains case files of Youth Aliyah leaders (madrichim) and students whom Hadassah helped for various reasons. It also contains material concerning several groups of Youth Aliyah children and youth who were rescued during World War II. It should be mentioned that case histories were often used for publicity purposes to gain financial support for Youth Aliyah efforts. The subseries primarily contains correspondence, but also includes articles, reports, clippings and a transcript of a manuscript. Much of the correspondence involves Gisela (Warburg) Wyzanski while she served on Hadassah's National Youth Aliyah Committee.

Included is the case history of A.L. who needed medical treatment and was sent to the United States to receive it. The case of Bernard Gelbart is also covered in this subseries. Gelbart was a Youth Aliyah leader who was trapped in occupied Lithuania after leading several Youth Aliyah groups out of Germany and Poland. A typescript of Gelbart's article, Youth Aliyah in the Whirlwind of Time (Jugend-Alijah im Wirbel der Zeit) can be found here. Some of the other cases also pertain to Youth Aliyah leaders who were trapped in occupied Europe. There is material on the Teheran children; the Transdniestrian (Transnistria) children; and the children who were aboard the Darien (ship) when it was released from the Athlit (Atlit) Detention Camp. Material pertaining to the sinking of two ships, the Patria and the Struma (Strumah) can also be found in this subseries.

Series II: Youth Aliyah Offices during the rise of Nazi Germany, World War II, and the immediate aftermath, 1935-1948

Subseries 1 is in German and English. Subseries 2 and 3 are primarily in English with some material in Hebrew and German.
Arrangement:

This series is arranged into three subseries.

Scope and Content:

The material in this series pertains to the Youth Aliyah offices in Berlin, Jerusalem, and London. For many years Hadassah was the largest financial contributor to the Youth Aliyah movement. As a result, correspondence originating in the Berlin office of Youth Aliyah (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Kinder und Jugend Alijah) came to Hadassah's national headquarters in New York City until the Berlin office was closed by the Nazis in 1939. The same is true of correspondence from the Jerusalem office of Youth Aliyah (chiefly called the Child and Youth Immigration Bureau) in the 1930s and 1940s. The correspondence of the London office (Children and Youth Aliyah, Society for the Immigration of Jewish Boys and Girls into Palestine closest to the developing disaster in Nazi-occupied Europe and to the refugees in transit countries on the way to Palestine, was also directed to Hadassah in New York. The series documents the period from 1935 to 1948 during which time some of the key people from the three Youth Aliyah offices died including Hedwig Eppstein (died at Auschwitz); Henrietta Szold (died February 13, 1945 at the age of 84); and Hans Beyth (shot and killed during an attack on the convoy he was in Palestine in 1947). The series includes correspondence, reports, publications, publicity material, and minutes.

Subseries 1: Berlin—Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Kinder und Jugend Alijah, 1935-1941

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries documents the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Kinder und Jugend Alijah that opened in 1933 in Berlin following the passage of laws that increasingly restricted Jews from employment, education, and civil society in Germany. The material in this subseries was compiled by Hadassah when the organization became officially involved in the Youth Aliyah movement in 1935. Included are correspondence, reports, and printed material. The correspondence is primarily between the Arbeitsgemeinschaft (Berlin office), the Jerusalem/Palestine office, and Hadassah. Correspondents include Eva Michaelis-Stern and Hedwig Epstein (Berlin), Henrietta Szold, Hans Beyth, and Georg Laudauer (Jerusalem/Palestine office), Marian Greenberg (Hadassah National Youth Aliyah Committee Chairman), and Rose Jacobs (Hadassah President). Subjects include youth immigration to Palestine; immigration certificates; finances and fundraising; religious education for Jewish youth in Palestine; and the administration of Youth Aliyah in Germany and Palestine. There are articles and reports from Eva Michaelis-Stern, Leo Baeck, and Recha Freier, as well as bulletins published by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft.

Subseries 2: Jerusalem—Jewish Agency for Palestine, Child and Youth Immigration Bureau, 1935-1948

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries includes correspondence, reports (education; financial; statistical; and others) and minutes documenting the Jerusalem office of Youth Aliyah, primarily called the Child and Youth Immigration Bureau of the Jewish Agency for Palestine (later the Jewish Agency for Israel) from 1935 to 1948. The office was originally called the Central Bureau for the Settlement of German Jews in Palestine, Jewish Agency for Palestine. The material is almost entirely from the period of the British Mandate for Palestine, though some material dates after the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. Henrietta Szold served as Director of the Child and Youth Immigration Bureau from 1933 to 1945. Following Szold's death in 1945, Hans Beyth assumed the role of Director until his premature death in 1947. Moshe Kol (formerly Moshe Kolodny) took over after as Director after Beyth and Kol's tenure is well-documented in Series III, particularly in Subseries 6: People.

The correspondence originates mostly from Henrietta Szold, Hans Beyth, and Georg Landauer who served as Treasurer of the Palestine office during this period. Most correspondence is directed to or between the Berlin office (until its closure in 1939); the London office; and Hadassah. Correspondents include Gisela (Warburg) Wyzanski (originally from the Berlin office and then with Hadassah); Rose Jacobs; Eva Michaelis-Stern; Siegfried Lehmann; Ethel Agron (originally Agronsky); Rose Viteles; Tamar de Sola Pool; and Akiba Lewinsky. There are reports from Alexander Dushkin; inspection reports; Henrietta Szold's report to Hadassah on the state of the Social Service Division of the Va'ad Leumi; and reports on the activities of Child and Youth Immigration Bureau.

Subjects represented in the subseries include finances and fundraising; child and youth immigration and rescue from Europe; religious education and communities in Palestine; training of madrichim (youth leaders); the administration of Youth Aliyah in Palestine; refugee conditions in Cyprus detention camps; Youth Aliyah education; the "Town to City Plan;" the death of Hans Beyth; security concerns for Youth Aliyah children in Palestine; Youth Aliyah institutions in Palestine; and scholarships for Youth Aliyah graduates; underprivileged children in Palestine; and European refugees.

Subseries 3: London—Children and Youth Aliyah, Society for the Immigration of Jewish Boys and Girls into Palestine, 1938-1948

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This series documents the London offices of Youth Aliyah, called the Children and Youth Aliyah, Society for the Immigration of Jewish Boys and Girls into Palestine. It was originally called the Youth Aliyah World Association for the Immigration to Palestine of Jewish Boys and Girls. Contained in the subseries are correspondence, minutes, Youth Aliyah bulletins, and reports. Much of the correspondence is between Eva Michaelis-Stern and Lola Warburg in London, the Jerusalem office, and Hadassah, primarily with Marian Greenberg, the Hadassah National Youth Aliyah Committee Chairman. Subjects include the Nazi invasion of Austria and Jewish refugees interned on the Danube; Nazi attacks on the Jews of Vienna; and the Hadassah Resolution to the Evian Refugee Conference in France, 1938.

The subseries also contains files ("Central Files") that were sent to the Hadassah headquarters in New York City for safekeeping during World War II. These files include correspondence and related material concerning finances; immigration certificates; transit negotiations and routes for various children's groups to reach Palestine; a Hadassah protest sent to Winston Churchill on the sinking of the Struma; and a letter from Edvard Beneš, the then-President of Czechoslovakia in exile in London during the War, commending Youth Aliyah for its work. Correspondence concerning the return of the "Central Files" to the London office can also be found in this subseries.

Reports include "Five years of youth immigration into Palestine, 1934-1939" by Henrietta Szold; and Michaelis-Stern's report, "Children immigration to Holland in connection with Youth Aliyah, 1938." Other reports include "How children are rescued by the Yishuv in Palestine," "Youth Aliyah in Givat Brenner," and "Conditions of Jews in transit countries." There are also reports and correspondence concerning conditions in Sachsenhausen, Buchenwald, and Dachau concentration camps, 1939; and a 1939 report from the Berlin office describing German government policies towards the Arbeitsgemeinschaft, Gestapo interrogations of Arbeitsgemeinschaft staff; and other material concerning the control and surveillance of Youth Aliyah activities in Germany.

Subseries 2: Conferences and Seminars, 1935-1996

Arrangement:

Chronological.

Scope and Content:

This subseries provides a documentation of Youth Aliyah conferences and seminars held primarily in New York City, Jerusalem, and Switzerland dating from the 1930s through the 1990s.The subseries contains correspondence, reports, speeches, programs, agendas, proceedings, and printed ephemera that resulted from Youth Aliyah conferences and seminars. Hadassah was heavily involved in these events as they helped organize, as well as participate in the conferences and seminars.

Examples of the topics of the speeches contained in this subseries include a speech by Dr. Georg Josephthal on the subject of time running out for the Jews of North Africa and Zena Harman's recollections of Henrietta Szold and Youth Aliyah (1954); a speech by Rabbi Philip Bernstein, "Remembering Anne Frank" (New York, 1958), based on conversations with Otto Frank; "The future of Youth Aliyah" by Moshe Kol (Jerusalem, 1958); and a slide presentation on the history of Youth Aliyah and narrated by Gisela Warburg Wyzanski (1959).

Subseries 3: Diaspora Countries, 1936-1995

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries magnifies the various issues encountered by the Youth Aliyah movement to rescue, sponsor the immigration of, and integrate Youth Aliyah children from throughout the Jewish Diaspora into the Yishuv (the Jewish settlement in Palestine) and, post-1948, into Israeli society. Early efforts during World War II were primarily rescue-focused, trying to get Jewish children out of Europe to Palestine. After the war, efforts turned to sponsoring Youth Aliyah for children from all over the Diaspora and their subsequent assimilation and education. Children from specific regions had unique issues. Cultural differences became pronounced, as children from urban and rural settings, and children from North Africa, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union, had different needs and different issues. From 1984 to 1985, "Operation Moses" evacuated approximately 8,000 Ethiopian Jews from Sudan to Israel. Many of the children arrived without parents. In 1991, the "Operation Solomon" airlift brought roughly 14,300 Ethiopian Jews to Israel within thirty-six hours. Two thirds of them were under the age of eighteen. At this time, in 1991, Hadassah allocated an additional three-million-dollar grant over three years for the education and absorption of the Ethiopian youth in Israel. Material in this subseries documents these activities, issues, and events. Included are correspondence, minutes, reports, and printed material.

Subseries 4: Education, Programs, and Training, 1944-2001

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries highlights the importance of education in the Youth Aliyah program. The early Youth Aliyah educational program focused on agriculture, the Hebrew language, and assimilation into the Yishuv. In 1952, under the advocacy and sponsorship of Hadassah and supervision of the Department of Youth Aliyah of the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Rural Vocational Education Center was established (for more on the Center see Series III, Subseries 5: Institutions) as vocational education became a major focus of the Youth Aliyah educational program. The groundwork for the establishment of the Center dates back to Alexander Dushkin's original survey of educational needs in Israel in 1947 (see Series III, Subseries 7; Box 15, Folder 8). Hadassah Neurim became the largest vocation educational center (for more on Hadassah Neurim see Series III, Subseries 5: Institutions). In 1979, Hadassah allocated a fund of $450,000 to establish a Youth Aliyah Pedagogical Center, with twenty-five satellites throughout Israel, to assist educators of disadvantaged youth. The fund was in honor of the forty-fifth anniversary of Youth Aliyah and was also used for educational Mobile Units, traveling educational facilities manned with teachers that visit youth centers. Mobile Units included a library and audiovisual aids. Information regarding the Pedagogical Center and Mobile Units can be found in Series III, Subseries 5: Institutions. Ramat Hadassah Szold had the largest preparatory program where low achieving children were sent (for more on Ramat Hadassah Szold see Series III, Subseries 5: Institutions). Within one or two years, seventy-five percent of children transferred to regular educational facilities.

This subseries also documents the training of Youth Aliyah madrichim (Youth Aliyah leaders and instructors) and social workers. In the 1940s, Hadassah sponsored Youth Aliyah social workers from Palestine to train in the United States. Material regarding this includes a thesis that resulted from the training, "Helping Post-War European Jewish Adolescents to Adjust in Israel" (see Box 22, Folder 3).

Most present in this subseries are correspondence, minutes, and reports, but there are also units of instruction and study course material, printed ephemera, and a thesis. For more publications and reports concerning Youth Aliyah education and programs see Series III, Subseries 7.

Operation-Music for Israel was a music program created to provide musical instruments for children and teens in Israel, including Youth Aliyah children. The program was started by Helen Coates, a close friend of Leonard Bernstein, and was supported by two organizations, Children to Palestine and the Christian Jewish Committee. Coates served as Chairman of Operation-Music for Israel. Leonard Bernstein (New York Philharmonic) and Serge Koussevitzky (Boston Symphony Orchestra) served as the national co-chairmen. After Koussevitzky's death in 1951, his wife, Olga Koussevitzky, served in his place. The program had numerous sponsors including Arthur Fiedler, Aaron Copland, Benny Goodman, and Albert Einstein. Hadassah also participated in the program. The scrapbook includes correspondence, photographs, circulation letters to supporters, clippings, concert programs, and printed ephemera. Helen Coates, Olga Koussevitzky, and Leonard Bernstein are a few of the people represented in the photographs.

Subseries 5: Institutions, 1928-2008

Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

The Youth Aliyah Institutions subseries documents youth villages, day centers, and educational facilities that were established for Youth Aliyah wards. By 1997, there were seventy youth villages and boarding schools, forty kibbutzim, and fifteen day centers connected to Youth Aliyah. Hadassah played a significant role in the establishment, funding, and upkeep of numerous Youth Aliyah institutions and facilities. Included are correspondence, minutes, reports, speeches, architectural records, publications, and printed ephemera illuminating Hadassah's advocacy, support, and activities pertaining to Youth Aliyah institutions.

A Youth village is a group home with educational facilities. One of the earliest Youth Aliyah institutions is Ben Shemen Youth Village, founded in 1927. It was established by Siegfried Lehmann, a German-born doctor and educator who also founded a Jewish orphanage in Berlin during World War I. The earliest material in this subseries (and in the entire collection) concerns Ben Shemen and correspondence of Lehmann can also be found here. Other youth villages that are represented in this subseries include Alonei Yitzhak Youth Village, Hadassah Neurim, Israel Goldstein Youth Village, Meir Shfeya, Neve Hadassah Youth Village, Nitzanim Youth Village, and Ramat Hadassah Szold.

Day Centers are educational facilities located in various cities throughout Israel that focus on vocational education and training. The centers provide vocational education to students who have been rejected by regular schools in their hometowns. The day centers, in part, were funded by Hadassah. By 1997, there were thirteen youth day centers in various cities. Several day centers were named after former Hadassah presidents including the Bernice Tannenbaum Day Center (formerly in Herzilya, then moved to Kiryat Shmona); the Faye Schenk Vocational Day Center (Jerusalem); the Frieda Lewis Day Center (Lod); the Carmela Kalmanson Day Center (Rehovot); and the Rose Matzkin Day Center (Tel Aviv). Material regarding these day centers and others are included in this subseries.

Educational facilities that Hadassah supported or funded include the Rural Vocational Center; the Madrichim Seminary at Villa Rosemarie; the Youth Aliyah Pedagogical Centers; the educational Mobile Units (traveling educational facilities manned with teachers; subjects included health education (physical, psychological, sex education) and arts and culture); and the Seminar Center at Hoshaya, which never opened. Hadassah raised $750,000 for the Hoshaya project, but the center was built, and Hadassah worked to have the money returned to them by the Jewish Agency for Israel. Material regarding these facilities and others is contained in this subseries. Also included is material concerning the Parents Circle Program, a Youth Aliyah program initiated in 1992 and funded by Hadassah. The aim of the program was to involve parents of children from Ethiopia in their child's education. The program involved intervention from psychologists and psychiatrists and was later expanded to include parents from Israel and the former Soviet Union.

He became a specialist in working with severely traumatized Youth Aliyah children and youth. He served as Director of Psychological Services for Youth Aliyah and authored books and articles. In the 1980s, both Hadassah and Youth Aliyah commissioned Feuerstein to do studies; on child survivors of the Holocaust (Hadassah) and on Ethiopian Youth Aliyah children. For his writings and reports, see Series III, Subseries 7.

93 12 Freier, Recha—Letter, manuscript, and clippings 1949, 1952, 1985request_box
  

Freier was one of the founders of the Youth Aliyah movement in Germany.

The letter is from Freier to the Directory Council of the Jewish World Congress. In it she accuses Leo Baeck and others at the "Reichsvereinigung der Juden" for causing "the death of thousands of Polish Jews." A response to the letter and Freier's accusations by Eva Michaelis-Stern in 1984 can be found in Box 64, Folder 29. The manuscript is by Freier and appears to be incomplete. It contains her account of the founding and early history of Youth Aliyah. The clippings are about Freier and date from 1985.
