Letter From Mengele

Post by bernd_th » 03 Oct 2019 06:27

Hello,

I would like to ask if anybody is interested in a letter from Josef Mengele.
I came to it in an "accidently" way and it is not exactly what I am searching for and what I am collecting (although it is rare..).

He wrote:
"Verehrte Frau Magnussen,
ich möchte mich für Ihre Zeilen sehr
herzlich bedanken. Es ist mir eine große
Freude mit Ihnen einen Kontakt bezüglich
meiner Forschungen zu pflegen.
In letzter Zeit konnte ich Ihnen leider
noch kein neues Material zukommen
lassen. Dennoch freue ich mich auf
weitere Konferenz.
So verbleibe ich mit freundlichen
Grüßen,
Ihr Josef Mengele"

Means:
"Dear Mrs. Magnussen,
I want to thank you very much for your letter.
It is a pleasure to me to stay in contact with you
concerning my research.
Lately I was not able to send you new material but
I am looking forward staying in contact with you.
Best regards and yours, sincerely,
Josef Mengele"


Karin Magnussen, the receipient of the letter, was a swedish researcher who was known for her studies of human eyes. Just have a look on wikipedia.
The letter went from Mrs. Magnussen to the daughter of a former assistant of her, before that daughter died and her collection was sold to different people.

As I mentioned, it is not the area of my interest. If there is anybody who wants to have it, feel free to contact me and to make a price suggestion. I do not know what it is worth.
If there is nobody, I will give it to a museum or something like that.

Best regards;
Bernd

I think ti's a scam fake letter IMO.Looks like a copy printed ,like why NO letter folds to fit in the small German envelopes? Fountain pen script looks way to even, no start and stop blots, ..
