Nationality[edit]

Berson was not Polish. When he was born, his home town was part auf the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He studied in Vienna (then capital of this country) and spent all of his later life in Germay, then as a German citizen. Plus, his family was Jewish. Therefore, the most exact term to describe his nationality/ethnicity ist Jewish-German (or German-Jewish). The fact that nowadays his home town belongs to Poland has no relevance in this case. --Bernardoni (talk) 14:10, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Berson was Poland and not business is in that only, that gave birth in Polish town. There were then times of oppression of the Polish people identically through Germans as well as Russians, development of the abilities on Polish soil was almost impossible, that is why Berson decided to operate in Berlin. And what more substantial always talked that is Poland, in addition considered through of that time compatriots at the patriot. Felt Poland, not German and really then it must prejudge about his national belonging. --Pawski (talk) 17:26, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
I can only reiterate what I wrote above. Berson was from a Jewish family. When he was born, he was an Austro-Hungarian citizen. He later became a German citizen. The only claim of him being Polish ist the fact that his home town belongs to Poland today. --Bernardoni (talk) 21:06, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
On this one I concur with Bernardoni - sources appear to describe him as "German" or "Jewish-German".Volunteer Marek (talk) 19:27, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
