For anyone interested in Weimar-era theatre, the IGRS has just opened the private collection of Martin Miller to interested researchers. The on-going archival process is documented in a blog: ‘The Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert Miller collection is one of a number of important archives relating to German theatre and exile studies held by the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies (IGRS) at the University of London.The collection as it stands at the start of this project comprises 13 archival boxes containing scripts, photographs, correspondence, programmes, newspaper reviews and sound recordings dated between the 1920s and the 1980s. It reveals the wealth of performances in theatre, radio, film and television programmes in which the couple was involved: from the German-speaking theatres of the former Austro-Hungarian lands in the 1920s and 30s (in Martin’s case), to the politically-charged theatre and cabaret scene of late-1930s Vienna, to the mainstream entertainments scene of post-war Britain.’
