Remembering Ernst Toller (1893-1939): Exiles and Refugees between Europe and the US

With support from the DAAD, the Max Kade Foundation, the Ernst-Toller-Gesellschaft, the Austrian Cultural Forum, and the administrations of Hunter College and Mary Immaculate College, we were proud to host the international conference "Remembering Ernst Toller (1893-1939): Exiles and Refugees between Europe and the US," on May 30-June 1, 2019.

The spring of 1919 saw the brutal end of the Bavarian soviet republic that had emerged as part of Germany's November Revolution. Twenty years later, on May 22, 1939, Ernst Toller, one of the leaders of that revolution and republic, committed suicide at the Mayflower Hotel in New York, where he was living in exile from Nazi Germany. To commemorate these anniversaries we organized this conference on German-speaking exiles in New York and the United States, and their legacy for today's exiles and refugees.
