Hirschfeld’s Testament

Hirschfeld’s Testament


Written in diary form, Magnus Hirschfeld’s last will and testament is an important source of information on the later years of his work and his efforts to secure his legacy. It documents his world tour and his exile in Austria, Switzerland and France until his death in 1935.

Our Research Centre supported and financed Ralf Dose’s edition of this historic document, which was published in May 2013 (see Publications).
