Books that Arno and Elsbeth Dobkowski sent from Berlin to their daughter Ursula in Scotland

In 1937, Elsbeth and Aharon-Arno Dubkowski from Glogau, Germany (today Glogow, Poland) began preparations for immigration Eretz Israel (Mandatory Palestine) with their three children. Their eldest son Peter left for Eretz Israel that year with the Youth Aliyah. His Zionist parents were planning on following with his two younger sisters, but the deteriorating situation for Jews in Germany and the restrictions that were instituted thwarted their plans.
