Haham Collection (1899-1946)

Naham Haham (1899-1971) was born in Bessarabia and later moved to Russia (Bessarabia was part of the Russian Empire until 1919 when it was recognised as a Romanian territory by the Paris Peace Conference. After the Second World War, Bessarabia was reclaimed by the Soviet Union and amalgamated in the Soviet Republic of Moldavia. Since 1991 Moldavia has been independent but remains a disputed area). Haham married Sifra San-meer (1901-1984) at the Romanian Legation in Berlin in 1924 and they moved to Britain where they adopted the name Newman.
