David Glick collection

Collection Summary
The collections consists of four reels of 16mm original color and black and white camera reversal film; each reel is approximately 400 feet in length. The films document David Glick's travels as a representative of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee helping German Jews emigrate to South America in 1939, trips to France in the 1920s, France and Bavaria between 1936 and 1938, and the United States in the 1930s and 1940s. The collection also includes a bound report compiled by Allen Hepner titled "Rescue and Resettlement: Thousands saved from Nazi Germany; bound report compiled by Allen Hepner titled "Research Strategy: Retrieving Information on David Glick's Private Mission to Save German Jews;" David Glick's passport and transit documents for the time period 1936-1939; a publication about David Glick's work; and a business card of Dr. Karl Haselbacher, the deputy in charge of the "Juden Fragen," given to David Glick in 1936 during his visit to Germany where he met with Himmler and Heydrich. Some of these materials may be combined into a single collection in the future.
The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2004 by Allen S. Hepner.
