6 February 1933
Certificate confirming Albert Friedländer’s admission to the German Chemical Society of Berlin
Three months after Friedländer was admitted to the DChG, members of its general assembly forced the president, Alfred Wohl, and vice-president, Arthur Rosenheim, to resign—both were Jewish. In the ensuing period other Jewish members, including Albert Friedländer, were expelled and Jewish staff members were dismissed from the society’s affiliat.
Albert Friedländer tried his utmost to leave Germany. After his son Heinz managed to emigrate to South Africa in 1936, Albert attempted to join him there with his daughter Jula. In February 1939, father and daughter received a temporary entry permit for the country, but a lack of money and delays on the part of the authorities thwarted their plans.
In late October 1941 Albert and Jula Friedländer were deported from Berlin to Łódź, where all trace of them was lost.
