Digibaeck consists of the entire archive of the Leo Baeck Institute, a New York research library and archive devoted to documenting the history of German-speaking Jewry. The digital library launched October 16 and provides free online access to primary-source materials encompassing five centuries of Jewish life in Central Europe.
20th-century German rabbi, scholar, and leader of Progressive Judaism, Leo Baeck published The Essence of Judaism, which interpreted Judaism through a prism of Neo-Kantianism. The book made him a famous proponent for Jews and their faith. In 1943, he was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and became the "honorary head" of the Council of Elders (Judenrat) in Theresienstadt. Despite offers to help him escape, he refused to abandon his community. He did survive the Holocaust.
