'Herman Max Sanger was a rabbi. He was the only child of Rabbi Jacob Sänger and his wife Hilda, née Heimann. He grew up at Breslau (Wroclaw, Poland). At the age of 16 he won a scholarship to study in Paris at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Sorbonne. He also attended the universities of Geneva and Cambridge, and studied at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Breslau, and the University of Würzburg (Ph.D., 1933). When he was ordained in 1933, seven successive generations of the Sänger family had produced rabbis.'
