Out of the Box: From Prague to Princeton, the Story of a German-Jewish Family

A story from the Archives of the Leo Baeck Institute

Devotion, heartache, intrigue, New Age spiritualism, the von Trapp family, a love triangle, and even Matthew Broderick! The Kulbach family had it all. Once members of the German Jewish intellectual elite, the Kulbachs survived wartime Germany, endured the trauma of immigration, and established new lives in the United States. Piecing together photos, letters, and other archival materials, Sarah Glover, Archivist at the Center for Jewish History, brings the Kulbach story Out of the Box and back to life.
