(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The library and archives of Georg Brandes, late Danish Jewish writer and critic, was transferred to the state library in this city and installed in a special room assigned for that purpose. A bust of Brandes by Max Klinger was also placed in the room.

In the collection is all of the correspondence of the late critic, including letters to and from Nietsche, Strindberg, Anatole France, Georges Clemenecau and Romain Rolland.
