Speaking on
Amsterdam, a Photographer and an Amazing Discovery


Professor Haas will share the fascinating story of Annemie Wolff-Koller, a German Jew who fled with her husband Helmuth to Amsterdam when the Nazis came to power in 1933. There they reinvented themselves as photographers. With the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands, both tried committing suicide but Annemie survived. After the war she returned to industrial photography but after a dispute with the city in 1971, she threatened to destroy all her work. A photo historian rediscovered her in 2006 and came across registers and hundreds of posed portraits of German Jewish families taken in 1943-44 on the eve of deportations. Among the photos are members of Peter’s family. An historian, An Huitzing began researching the over 400 people that were photographed and published in 2011 the stories of all those she could identify. It is an amazing insight into the German Jewish refugee in Amsterdam.

Dr. Haas is the Abba Hillel Silver Professor Emeritus of Jewish Studies at Case Western Reserve University. He was appointed Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Case Western Reserve in 2003 and was a visiting professor at the Spertus Institute Of Jewish Studies In Chicago. He stepped down as Chair of the Department of Religious Studies in 2015 and fully retired in the summer of 2016.

He is doing volunteer work, serving with the pastoral care team at South Point Hospital, as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for the Juvenile Court and as a docent at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
