Hagit:
Is "club of friends" a translation of "Gesellschaft der Freunde"? That
organization was a liberal Jewish charitable and cultural society that
operated >from 1792 until 1935, when the Nazis banned it. Until the
1880s, its members were for the most part the Jewish elite of Berlin. In
its later years it was less public and also admitted more Gentile members.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesellschaft_der_Freunde includes a
membership list. And what a list!

Dear Gersig friends,
I am looking for information about my uncle who lived in Berlin
Between 1928 – 1933 and was active in the “club of friends”.
(Probably an anti-Nazi organization).
a) Does anybody came across this group?
b) How can I contact an archive in Berlin for some details about it?
