Description: Endowed by a generous bequest from the estate of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller, funding is available in 2012-2013 for researchers in the field of German-speaking exile in the UK wishing to work at the Institute’s Germanic Studies Library and its archives. The Exile Archive dates to 1996-97 when the collection was established at the then Institute of Germanic Studies (now Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies). The Institute already held the papers of several individuals such as Rudolf Majut, Herbert Thoma and Berthold Auerbach, who were exiled from Germany and Austria during the 1930s as a result of persecution under the National Socialist regime. Since the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies was set up, the Institute has attracted further significant donations and bequests, among the most important being the papers of the Anglo-Austrian Society and the archive of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller. The award is £1,000 per month for a period of between one amd three months.
