Benjamin Hirsch is a Holocaust survivor from Frankfurt am Main, who was able to emigrate from Nazi Germany on a Kindertransport. Benjamin survived the war along with his four older siblings. His father Dr. Hermann Hirsch, a dentist, was killed by the Nazis in 1942 and his two younger siblings and his mother, Mathilda Auerbach Hirsch perished in Auschwitz in 1943. Benjamin and his surviving siblings were resettled in Georgia. Benjamin attended Georgia Tech's School of Architecture and served in the United States Army during the Korean conflict. The collection consists of a gold pocket watch, one of three left by Dr. Hermann Hirsch in Switzerland for his three sons, Asher, Jack and Benjamin.
