Heinrich Mann requests membership

Handwritten letter from Heinrich Mann to Rudolf Olden, Nice, 20 January 1934, f. 1.

At this time Mann was living in exile in Nice, having been an early outspoken critic of the Nazi party in Germany. Mann went on to become the Centre’s president in April 1934. This item is held at the German National Library (Gerrman Exile Archive 1933-1945, Frankfurt am Main).
