German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collections

German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collections

Personal and professional papers of German-speaking Émigré in the social sciences, humanities, and the arts and the organizations which assisted those who fled the Nazi regime.
In recognition of the serious scholarly interest in the mass migration of German speaking exiles from the Nazi regime, a German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection was established in 1976 at the University at Albany, State University of New York. This growing collection has been developed since the 1970s through the efforts of the University Libraries and Professor John M. Spalek of the University's Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literature Department
