Ernst Jünger – Joseph Wulf
Der Briefwechsel 1962–1974
[Ernst Jünger – Joseph Wulf. The Correspondence 1962–1974]
Among the historians that have researched the persecution and murder of the European Jews during National Socialism, Joseph Wulf holds an important position as a survivor of Auschwitz and as the first chronicler of the Holocaust. In 1962, he contacted Ernst Jünger with whom he corresponded until Wulf’s death in 1974. This correspondence, along with multiple meetings in Wilflingen and Berlin, encompasses around 150 letters in which both Jünger and Wulf have shared their views on the time of National Socialism, the Holocaust, and the public negotiation of their memory. In many cases, these assessments correspond with one another, but there were also divergences. Thus, their correspondence becomes an important testimony to the debate on National Socialism in the German Federal Republic.
