Biographical/Historical Note

Benjamin Hirsch and Associates is an architectural firm in Atlanta, Georgia. Founded by Benjamin Hirsch in 1978, the firm specializes in religious architecture, but it also produces residential, retail, and commercial projects as well as exhibit and monument designs.

Benjamin Hirsch was born in September, 1932 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, to Hermann Hirsch and Mathilda Auerbach Hirsch. In 1938, as the Nazi regime terrorized German Jews, Benjamin and his four older siblings were sent to France by their mother. Benjamin was separated from his siblings in France, but in 1941, he was sent by boat to America with his two sisters. The two girls and Benjamin met up with their brothers, and they built a new life in Atlanta, Georgia.

After graduation from Hoke Smith High School in Atlanta, Benjamin Hirsch attended the Georgia Institute of Technology to study architecture. Two years into the program, Hirsch joined the U. S. Army to fight in the Korean War. During his army service, Hirsch returned to Germany to search for his two younger siblings. In 1947, he discovered that his father had been killed by the Nazis in November 1942, and his mother, brother, and sister had perished at Auschwitz in 1943.

Hirsch returned to Georgia Tech and completed his five-year degree in Architecture in 1958. Once graduated from Tech, he became an architect in Atlanta. For a short time he was in practice with Warren Epstein in the firm of Epstein and Hirsch. In 1978, Hirsch founded Benjamin Hirsch and Associates, Inc. As of this writing (December 2013), the firm has been in operation for more than 35 years.

Benjamin Hirsch and Associates, Inc. has designed several award-winning structures, notably the Memorial to Six Million Jewish Martyrs in Greenwood Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia. Dedicated to the six million Jews killed in World War II, this monument is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Hirsch has published two autobiographical books, Hearing a Different Drummer: A Holocaust Survivor’s Search for Identity (2000) and Home is Where You Find It (2006).

Hirsch married Jacqueline Robkin in March, 1959, and they have three daughters and one son.
