Writing in Times of Conflict
My latest post for Fine Books & Collections is about the new Writing in Times of Conflict exhibition at the Senate House Library, University of London, which looks at how writers have worked towards peace in their work over the last 100 years. Among items on display is the Nazi Black Book (Sonderfahndungsliste G.B.), first produced by the Gestapo secret police in 1940, which contains a special wanted list in alphabetical order of nearly 3,000 British politicians, writers, peace activists, émigrés, intelligence agents, scientists, and artists who were to be arrested immediately after an invasion.
