By Howard1949-2011 Lenhoff

Abstract

The Howard Lenhoff Papers were generated and accumulated by Howard Lenhoff starting with his involvement with the American Association for Ethiopian Jews (AAEJ) in 1974 and running up until his final preparations for his book, Black Jews, Jews and Other Heroes: How Grassroots Activism Led to the Rescue of the Ethiopian Jews (2007). In addition to chronicling Lenhoff's participation in AAEJ, the collection documents AAEJ's relationships with other activists and organizations; Israeli government officials' responses to AAEJ pressure; requests for help and stories of trauma from the Ethiopian Jews; AAEJ's extensive publicity efforts; and American Jewish press coverage of the struggles of Ethiopian Jewry. The materials include correspondence, clippings, notes, drafts, photographs, audiocassettes and posters.Digital ImageHoward Lenhoff donated the bulk of his collection to the AJHS in 2008. 31 linear feet of boxes of chronological and subject files were received on April 30, 2008 as accession # 2008.22.
