P. Walter Jacob Archive
The research center is home to this archive, which preserves the estate of its namesake, P. Walter Jacob (1905-1977). Jacob ran a German-speaking exile theatre in Argentina for nearly ten years and corresponded extensively with a range of his famous contemporaries. Accordingly the focus of this collection is on music and theatre.
Moreover, it houses a collection of newspaper clippings, started by Jacob and continued after his death, as well as further items from his estate and collections from the fields of literature, theatre, film and politics, concerning, e.g., Jo Mihaly, Hanuš Burger, Joachim Lackner, Reinhold K. Olszewski and Jacob Walcher. Additionally, the archive contains the partial estates of Walter A. Berendsohn and Werner Mittenzwei, which include documents pertaining to the history of exile research itself.
