THE “GRITLI” LETTERS (1914-1929)

The Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy Fund commissioned the preparation of Franz Rosenzweig’s correspondence with Margrit Rosenstock-Huessy. This is the only source of the complete surviving correspondence in unabridged form, drawn directly from the original manuscripts. There are more than 1200 letters.

Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) wrote these letters between 1917 and 1929 to Margrit Rosenstock-Huessy (1893 -1959) and his friend Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy (1888-1973.) The Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy Fund believes that these letters offer an important insight into the complex relationships between these three people, and that at a time that was centrally important for their lives and work.

The correspondence was transcribed by Ulrike von Moltke between 1985 and 1990. Michael Gormann-Thelen und Dr. Elfriede Büchsel have proof-read, corrected and added to these transcriptions. The correspondence is in German.
