On the Friendship Between Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin

On October 14, the German Historical Museum (DHM) celebrated Hannah Arendt's Birthday with an event entitled "Hannah Arendt und die Freundschaft”; the program was organized in the context of the DHM’s exhibition, “Hannah Arendt und das zwanzigste Jahrhundert.”

Liliane Weissberg, a member of the scholarly board of the DHM as well as this exhibition, was unable to travel to Berlin, and contributed via recording.  This contribution, on Arendt's postcards to Walter Benjamin, has now been acquired by another museum, and added to the #closedbutopen site of the Literaturmuseum der Moderne in Marbach. https://youtu.be/PJvkKMhHbW8
