of German-Jewish History and Culture


Since we are sadly unable to run our upcoming lectures and events due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the Leo Baeck Institute London would like to offer you instead a web-series of ‘Snapshots of German-Jewish History and Culture’ to overcome the restrictions of the prevailing confinement. We will attempt to give you an insight into interesting items from our London institute’s collection of rare books and historical pamphlets that illustrate many facets of the history and culture of Europe’s German speaking Jewry. With this new web-based project, we hope to be able to divert, inform and provide some interesting food for thought in these difficult days.

Please click here to view our first post, in which we would like to introduce you to two prominent Jewish personalities who embody some of the key features defining the experiences of the German-speaking Jewry in the late 19th and early 20th century: The actress Elisabeth Bergner (1897-1986) and her biographer, the literary scholar and journalist Arthur Eloesser (1870-1938).

The collection is made available to view by Queen Mary University of London Archives and Special Collections and details of how to arrange a visit are available through their website A full list of the pamphlets is available on request from
