Overview and metadata sections

Kathleen Hertzberg was a Canadian Quaker. She was born in England, and studied at Woodbrooke, a Quaker College in England. She worked in Germany prior to World War II, helping Jewish people leave the country. During the war, she worked in air-raid shelters in England as a social worker for continental refugees in England. After the war, she was appointed to accompany another Quaker to make the first post-war visits to German Quakers on behalf of the London Yearly Meeting. Kathleen Hertzberg moved to Canada in 1952, and married Dr. Fitz Hertzberg. The couple had three children and lived in Pickering, Ontario. She was an editor of the Canadian Quaker History Journal, and was a co-founder and chariperson of the Canadian Friends Historical Association.
