Gems in an Austrian Jewish Exile Theatre Collection Uncovered in Blog

Wednesday 16 January 2013

Archivist Clare George has started a blog about her work on the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller papers. Martin and Hannah were Austrian Jewish actors, active in the theatre in 1930s Vienna, who came to London as refugees in 1939. After Hannah’s death in 1998, their son Daniel deposited the papers at the Institute, and last year the Miller Trust agreed to fund an archivist to sort them and make them more accessible to researchers. Over the next few months Clare will be setting out some of the highlights of the collection and documenting her progress with the task of repackaging and cataloguing the collection on her blog. You can follow her on her blog at http://norbertmiller.wordpress.com/. She would be delighted to hear from anyone who wishes to comment or put questions to her via the blog.
