Scope and Content

The correspondence centres on publishing a German edition of Gerald Reitlinger’s study ‘The Final Solution’. Light is thrown on The Wiener Library’s involvement in this project including fundraising for printing costs, detailed proof reading of the manuscript, and the distribution of free copies on individuals and institutions not able to afford to buy one.

Other issues briefly addressed in this correspondence are an interview with Alfred Wiener about the Library; a potential financial support of the Library by West German authorities, a potential exhibition about The Wiener Library; antisemitic incidents in West Germany 1959/1960; and the lending of archival material.
