Papers of Leibl Feldman

  • ZA HPRA A2129
  • Fonds
  • 1930 - 1976

The Feldman Papers consist of correspondence, notes, typescripts, press clippings, photographs and printed items. They reflect the many interests of Feldman not only as a Jew, a writer and a politician but also an educationalist. Of particular interest to the researcher from a social and political point of view are the letters to editors and the many articles which he wrote, concerning education, race relations, and the ancestory of the Jews themselves. His greatest achievement was the publishing of his book in 1937 called Yidn in Dorem Afrike i.e. History of the Jews in South Africa. The papers themselves give a clear picture of Feldmans concern for the Jews and the role that they played in the early development of South Africa.
