  • Scope and Contents

    The Nahum Goldmann collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, oral histories, audiovisual recordings, scrapbooks, photographs, personal papers, press clippings, and awards related to Nahum Goldmann’s activities as a Zionist and Jewish activist. The collection documents Goldmann’s work with the many Jewish and Zionist organizations he was involved in, most notably the World Jewish Congress and the Jewish Agency for Palestine. Goldmann was a prolific writer, and this collection contains drafts and correspondence related to many of the books, articles, and speeches that he wrote to promote his ideas. A small amount of material covers Goldmann’s personal and family life. The collection also contains articles and correspondence written about Nahum Goldmann, including a large number of condolence letters. For more information, see the series-level descriptions.
