Letter from Harris Isaacson on the Nazis' early rise to power , pg 1

24-May-33 - private collection

Thank you to Estate of Marilyn Isaacson Simonds for the photo

Note:
Harris Isaacson closely followed events in Europe in the dark years leading up to World War II. In a letter to his cousin in Palestine, dated May 24, 1933, less than four months after Adolph Hitler’s appointment as German Chancellor, Isaacson expressed grave concern for the future of German Jewry. His words, that Germany’s leaders “were bent to destroy, at all costs, our brethren and all his life work,” were prophetic.
