In memoriam

Stefan Zweig

We need a completely different kind of courage.

Stefan Zweig, pacifist pioneer for a "spiritualyl united Europe", was a passionate collector of autographs. After having been forced to leave Austria in 1934 he sold his extensive collection.

A considerable part he donated his frien Joseph Gregor, at that time Director of the Theatre collection of the Austrian National Library. Since that day the Theatermuseum holds 100 precious manuscripts of famous contemporary authors, amongst them Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann, Joseph Roth, Franz Werfel and many more.

On February 23rd, 1942, Zweig and his wife Lotte committed suicide in their Brasilian exile.
