Partial membership list of the New Americans Social Club

When the survivors arrived in New Orleans after the war, they did not always feel welcomed by the local Jewish community. The survivors were mostly of Polish origin and the local Jews were mostly of German-Jewish origin. Historically there had been a deep gulf between the two. The survivors decided in the early 1960s (after confronting the American Nazi Norman Lincoln Rockwell) to form their own club, which they named The New Americans Social Club. On this partial list its members are the names of several of our survivors, including Felicia Fuksman (Max died in 1982), Eva and Henry Galler, Sigmund Boraks, Isaac and Dora Niederman, and Martin Wasserman.
