Memoirs and photographs, relating to the Jewish community in Russia, Germany and Palestine.
Max Koppelmann was a Russian Jewish émigré in Germany. He was born in the Russian Empire (Mogilev) in 1882 and lived in Moscow
and St. Petersburg prior to the turn of the century. In 1901 he became a student at the Warsaw Polytechnic. Between 1907 and
1914 he was involved in the family business: grain trade and breweries. In the course of the First World War, Koppelmann engaged
in the production of munitions. Koppelmann left Russia during the Civil War and settled in Berlin (by 1921), where he lived
until 1936, at which time he left Germany altogether.
