Walther Rathenau - collection of pamphlets.

We recently discovered a cache of uncatalogued pamphlets by Walter Rathenau in the basement. Walter Rathenau 1867 - 1922 was a German industrialist, politician, writer and statesman who was Foreign Minister of Germany during the Weimar Republic and was assassinated.

Published between 1916 and 1921 and printed in the German Gothic script, the collection of 14 pamphlets seem a significant find and are now catalogued and stored in the Archives Room.
