1Title:  Hal Hanauer Myers Papers     
 Creator:  Myers, Hal Hanauer 
 Dates:  1938-2005 
 Abstract:  Born Hans Hanauer to a Jewish family in Karlsruhe, Germany, Hal Hanauer Meyers was one of the children at the French concentration camp Camp de Gurs who were rescued by Quakers in January 1941. He and his brother, Dieter, eventually were placed with Cleveland, Ohio, philanthropists David and Inez Myers. Hans stayed in Cleveland, attended Case Institute of Technology, and eventually changed his name to Hal Hanauer Myers. The collection consists of speeches, correspondence and envelopes, calendars, school notebooks, various identification cards, scrapbook pages, news clippings, photographs, and books. Of particular interest are his Nazi identification card, brief autobiographical speech given at Congregation Shaarey Tikvah, wartime correspondence with his sister and family, some of which is in German, and notebooks used in the Quaker (American Friends Service Committee) refugee camp to learn English and French.
