    Collection Creator
    Heinrich Grüber
    Heinrich Grüber (1891-1975) was a Protestant pastor who was a leading figure in the Confessing Church (Bekennende Kirche) in and around Berlin in the 1930s, serving as pastor of a congregation in Kaulsdorf and establishing an office that sought to assist Jewish converts to Christianity who were persecuted by the Nazis, an office that was later known as the "Büro-Grüber," and which sought to provide shelter for persecuted Jews and to supply them the means to emigrate. Arrested for these activities in 1940, Grüber was imprisoned for three years, first at Sachsenhausen, and then Dachau. Following the war, he was appointed to the position of "Propst" by the bishop of the Evangelical (Protestant) church in Berlin, and established an office to help Jews and others who had been persecuted by the Nazis, and who had returned to Berlin after the war.
