Due to his Jewish heritage Joseph was forced to leave Germany following the Nazi Party's takeover in 1933. He initially went to Austria and then on to Italy and Britain. He finally settled in the United States in 1939 and was employed occasionally in Hollywood where he was sometimes credited as Al Joseph. His final work was on the western television series Gunsmoke, editing over a hundred and fifty episodes.
