    Abstract: Interview with Helen Schuster conducted by Norton B. Stern as part of the Oral History Program of the Archives of the Jewish Community Library of the Jewish Federation-Council of Greater Los Angeles.
    Abstract: From 1901 on the Schuster family resided in Los Angeles, while their business was located at Holbrook, Arizona (involved in stock raising). They were heavily involved with the Jewish community in Los Angeles. They became members of B'nai B'rith (and maintained membership at least until 1917). Very active social life in LA, many Jewish families around. The family home was established in the nine hundred block south of Beacon Street. The members of the family participated in social activities of the principal Jewish Club of pioneer settlers, the Concordia, and later joined the Hillcrest Country Club. Helen Schuster's father Adolf Schuster was born in Westphalia (Germany) in February 1863 (?). His twin brother was Ben Schuster. Adolf immigrated to the USA in 1878 to avoid conscription. The family is related to the Schuster family of San Francisco. Ben came to the USA in 1883 and in 1884 Adolf decided to establish his own business. May 1884, the A.&B. Schuster Company was established, a general merchandise business, at Bernalillo, New Mexico. Their main store was located in Holbrook, Arizona, from 1900 on. They opened branch stores in St. Johns and Whiteriver. Another brother (?) came to Arizona in 1900 to work for the family business. Adolf Schuster became the confidante of the Indians who conducted business in Holbrook because he gave them credit. His Indian name was "The Man who looks like the Other Man" (because of his twin brother Ben). He learned Spanish in order to be able to communicate with the Indians. In 1888 the Holbrook store was destroyed by fire. In the late 1880s the Schusters conducted a freighting business. The Schusters owned wagons and contracted with the Federal Government to haul supplies from Holbrook to Fort Apache (army post). Large number of men and drivers hired.
    Abstract: A.&B. Schuster Company was incorporated in the fall of 1911. (Ben died December 1911) Helen Schuster's brother Richard and later his wife took over the business when Adolf had died in 1934. After she died Helen's cousin operated it for a time, then it was passed on to her. She sold it to the company's manager, who liquidated the business in the late 1960s.

    Abstract: 12 chapters about the life of Willi Werner Hecht, starting with his youth, life as a student, his life in Europe and finally how he went to Israel to live with his family.
    Abstract: The memoir tells about Hecht's changing relationship to his Jewish religion. It gives account of the several animals the family possessed, of the social life and character of his parents, how they bought a car and details about his time at the “Gymnasium”, the “Realschule” and finally at the “Realgymnasium”. Furthermore Hecht joined the “Boy Scouts”, but his parents forbade this membership. Hecht writes about the holidays in the Swiss Alps, his problematic relationship to his brother Rudi, his cousin Ernst Levy, a journey to Paris and his first love. The author also tells about his discovery of Zionism and how he attended discussions about this topic between people like Chaim Weizmann and Wladimir Jabotinsky. Moreover he writes about his time at the university and how he experienced the Jewish Refugees shortly before the war. He also describes how he found his future wife Carola Philippson, his time at the Swiss Army. The memoir narrates Hechts life during World War II, e.g. his flight from Antwerp, his time in Portugal, the birth of his first child. Hechts wife was involved in the WIZO, leading the branch for the young members (“Jungwizo”).
    Abstract: Furthermore the memoir describes the work of Hecht as a lawyer after the war, including a trip to Moscow, and his family life, now with two sons as well as the growing interest in Israel and finally the emigration to Jerusalem/Israel. The memoir includes paragraphs about the inflation in Germany during the early 20s, the situation in Switzerland between 1933-1945 in general, Hecht's observations in the Soviet Union after the War and several personal thoughts about the role of the lawyer.
