Fritz Friedländer was one of the last active members of the Central Association of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith. From 1933 to 1938 he was a teacher for the organization at the Jewish Boys’ School for the district of Berlin[CS1] . Based on this activity he developed a specific teaching method focused on emigration for the Jews who were excluded in Germany. Friedländer himself left with his wife Germany at the beginning of 1939 for Shanghai, whence he was finally able to emigrate to Australia after the Second World War. This article outlines his life in the light of the dramatic worldwide events in the first half of the twentieth century.
