    Edgar Hass
    Dr. Edgar Haas, a Jewish lawyer, was born on August 16, 1877 in Wiesbaden. In the 1930s he jointed a law practice with Dr. Wallter Klaas and Ernst Kaufmann. In December 1939, his provisional admission as a legal consultant was not renewed. From February 1939 he worked as an assistant to Herbert Samson. After his emigration to the Netherlands (from where Dr. Samson was later deported and murdered), he took over in 1939 the practice in the Great Theater Street 34th. About his fate nothing could be determined.

    System of Arrangement
    Archival History Note. The Higher Regional Court confiscated the files of the deported or emigrated Jewish legal advisers. The files, which were handed over to the State Archives in 1986, were badly affected by improper storage; some of the files were removed because of mixed contents or severely damaged (e.g. by tearing out the stamps). The order of the records was based on the filing system of the archivist of the Staatsarchiv Hamburg, e.g., the files were recorded chronologically in the order of their opening.
