Summary

Emigres associated with Black Star Picture Agency and "Life" shared much in common: most were well-educated European Jews who became journalists after being involved in other professions and most had worked for German magazines and had emigrated to the United States to pursue their careers while escaping the Nazis. After being trained on the editorial staffs of two German magazines, Fritz Goro was forced by the Nazis to abandon his career. He and his family emigrated to France in 1933 and he turned to a second career, photography, in order to survive. He discovered that he could apply what he had learned in Germany about candid photography to his own photoreportages. Goro wanted to emigrate to America but had trouble obtaining a visa. He finally arrived in the United States with is family in 1936. Goro than joined Black Star and, like other photographers who had fled Hitler, he produced photo essays for "Life." After five years with the agency, Goro went directly under contract to "Life." He became a staff photographer in 1944 and was a scientific/medical specialist for twenty-seven years. During conversation on two separate occasions with Goro, it became clear that his background, discipline, and talent enabled him and others like him to move into the mainstream of the developing American picture magazine business.
