Manuscript drafts of song and poetry texts, mostly written for Jewish holidays, and used by various members of the family of Julius Hirsch, originally of Hamburg, Germany, circa 1935-1940. Some of the poetry may have been written while Hirsch was interned as an enemy alien in Great Britain in 1940-1941 at the Hutchinson camp on the Isle of Man, but much of it dates from earlier years. Collection also includes a printed sheet with lyrics and music of the "Hutchinson Camp Song," written by internees at the Hutchinson camp, 1940, as well as newspaper clippings from British newspapers, circa early 1940s, regarding Jews in Britain.
