Custodial history

Scope and content

This Collection of photographs were taken in 1934 by Hyman Schauder during a student trip that took him to the USSR, Eastern Europe, Palestine, Israel, Syria, Italy and Switzerland.

Hyman Schauder was studying Economics at the LSE and travelling with an HB Webb Scholarship for overseas study. He took this trip with a party of 8 other economists to study the economic situation in Europe.

Schauder investigated industrial conditions and methods of unemployment insurance and relief in Britain and the United States, and did research work in Geneva.

Hyman Schauder wrote letters to his family and wrote notes on the backs of his photographs. All these sources of original narrative are available today in the collection held by South African Jewish Museum. In some cases Hyman Schauder's notes are availble in this collection and in other cases they have been transcribed.

Whenever possible research has been conducted to enrich the information in these collections. If you would like to add any additional information please contact us.
