Using this Collection:
Joshua O. Haberman was born in Vienna in 1919 to Berta and Isser Haberman, who owned a mail-order business. After graduating from Gymnasium, he simultaneously enrolled at the University of Vienna (to study philosophy) and at the Vienna Jewish Theological seminary. Little more than a semester later, Haberman’s studies were interrupted by Germany’s annexation of Austria (the Anschluss) in March 1938. To escape the Nazis, Haberman applied to Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio.
