The Seghers letter, on her letterhead, is dated August 22, 1944, from Mexico, to an Ivan Black in New York City. It is four paragraphs long and is an invitation to a private showing of the movie version of the classic novel. The screening was held under the auspices of the Joint Antifascist Refugee Committee. It is signed in ink by Seghers in her distinctive jagged signature. The press release sets forth the cast of the movie, and other credits, and is dated May 15, 1944. The 20 page brochure was issued by the Joint Anti-Fascist Committee. The other highlighted author of the brochure was Constancia de la Mora, an activist during the Spanish Civil War. Following the two pieces by the well-known authors is information on the activities of the Committee at the time. The First Edition itself transcends its time, and it is very much a classic now, widely read at least in the German-speaking world to this day. It was also marked a very early fictional account of a Nazi concentration camp -- to be distinguished from the death camps, we would add. 8vo. 338 pp. Darkened spine. A few stains on the endpapers. Otherwise, age toned but clean.
