Entangled European histories. Central European emigrant holdings in the Swiss Library of Eastern Europe

Maurer, Eva (28 May 2019). Entangled European histories. Central European emigrant holdings in the Swiss Library of Eastern Europe (Unpublished). In: 48. ABDOS-Tagung. Budapest. 27.-29. Mai 2019.

The “Swiss Library of Eastern Europe” (Schweizerische Osteuropabibliothek), Switzerland’s largest library focusing on Central and East European history, was founded in the aftermath and very much under the impression of the Hungarian uprising of 1956. Over the next thirty years, political emigrés from Central Europe and especially from Hungary were to be present in the library as librarians, researchers and patrons. Their interests and their work is reflected in the diversity of holdings: materials documenting the immediate impact of 1956 in Switzerland, a broad collection of émigré newspapers from all over the world and archival holdings pertaining to Central European and especially Hungarian contemporary history document these entangled histories today.
