Irving Newman papers

Document | Accession Number: 1995.A.0753.1

The Irving Newman papers are comprised primarily of newspaper clippings of articles Irving wrote for the Jidisze Cajtung while living in displaced persons camps in West Germany between 1945 and 1949. These articles are primarily in Yiddish and describe the situations of surviving Jews in Germany, relations with Germany, and preparations for relocation to Israel. Included among the newspaper clippings is correspondence soliciting articles, acknowledging the receipt of articles, and one letter written by Irving in which he describes his detainment. This collection also includes a series of photographs depicting the Newman family before and after World War II. Images taken before the war include Lisa and Irving’s wedding in 1935 and the young family in 1939 or 1940. Post war images include the surviving children and daily life at a displaced person’s camp in Erzabtei St. Ottilien near Landsberg am Lech, Germany and the Newman family aboard the SS Marine Marlin in route for the United States in 1949.
