To whomever it may concern!
We, the subscribers to this letter, are concerned about the future of the Georg Lukacs Archive (GLA) in Budapest. Given the difficulties the GLA faces due to the current political situation in Hungary, we believe that a secured continuation of the work of the GLA can only be based upon the independence of the GLA from any other institution. To this end, we strongly support the idea of the establishment of an independent international foundation. In our opinion this foundation should above all take over the literary estate and archive of Georg Lukacs. Furthermore, if at all possible it should also take over the former flat of Georg Lukacs to enable the GLA to continue its important work at the place where it is has always been. To put it in a nutshell, we should strive for an independent future for the GLA at its historical place – the former flat of Georg Lukacs in Budapest.
We the subscribers are willing to do what we can to make the initiative of the International Georg Lukacs Foundation a success.
Please let us know when and what specific support is needed! http://www.save-georg-lukacs-archive.org/
