Aside from 2 letters written from Vichy, the Fuchs-Robetins write from England and, after 1946, from New York. The letters often discuss family matters, including concern for the parents of Hanna and Franz, while the latter were still in Marseille and trying to emigrate to the U.S., and the death of their father, Rudolf Werfel, in 1941. Later, the Fuchs-Robetins report on the progress of their own efforts to emigrate to the U.S. Throughout the correspondence Hanna and Herbert frequently mention reading works of Franz Werfel and offer their reflections; similarly they comment enthusiastically on Alma Mahler's memoir about Gustav Mahler (Erinnerungen und Briefe) in 1940. While the Fuchs-Robetins were living in England, Franz Werfel authorized Herbert to act as a business manager for him in matters pertaining to the publication of his works there. Herbert dedicates himself to these tasks with great devotion and reports in detail on negotiations with publishers and on the sales of Werfel's works in Britain. (The publisher Hamish Hamilton is frequently mentioned; in undated draft telegrams Werfel addresses Cherry Kearton and refers to him as a friend at Jarrolds Publishers.) In 1945 Herbert reports on the successful opening performance of Werfel's play Jacobowsky and the Colonel in London. Hanna and Herbert refer to their children in the letters by their nicknames, "Munzo" (Franz) and "Dodo" (Dorothea). The correspondence with Adolf Klarmann, in 1946, mostly concerns the conveyance of manuscripts of Werfel to Klarmann, in particular the autobiographical piece entitled "Erguss und Beichte."
with Alma Mahler, Franz Werfel, and Adolf Klarmann by Marianne Rieser( )

Following are some salient topics of the correspondence: the efforts to arrange for the immigration of Werfel's parents from France to the U.S. in 1941 (Werfel's father died in France but his mother arrived safely in New York City); Marianne Rieser's writing, including attempts to find a theater producer for Rieser's play Eugenia (the letter from Weigsal concerns the Riesers' appeals to him on this subject), and Werfel's various efforts to advise her and help her professionally; the relationship between Franz and Marianne over the years, especially in view of their respective ambitions as writers; the theater business generally in Europe and in the U.S; Marianne and Ferdinand's relationship to Alma; the Riesers' return to Zurich after the war and Ferdinand's death there in 1947 (the latter is the subject of the item from Dr. S. Rieser); preparations for Alma's postwar trip to Europe; and Marianne's later pursuits as a painter. Additional topics that arise in Werfel's letters to his sister include his own development as a writer and his perceptions of Alma. Included is a manuscript of an English translation of Rieser's play Eugenia, entitled Immortal Girl, with an inscription from her; 5 photographic reproductions of paintings by Rieser (3 of them bearing letters to Alma inscribed on the reverse); and an invitation to an exhibition of Rieser's paintings at a gallery in California in 1961, as well as a number of clippings from California newspapers pertaining to that event

Alban Berg and Hanna Fuchs : the story of a love in letters by Constantin Floros( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In the fall of 1976, 14 letters by Alban Berg, renowned composer of the Second Viennese School, were discovered in the posthumous papers of Hanna Fuchs-Robettin, wife of a Prague industrialist and sister of Franz Werfel, the well-known Austro-Czech writer. In the 1920s Berg gained international notoriety with his opera Wozzeck and the Lyric Suite, which was largely inspired by his relationship with Fuchs." "The secret letters were delivered to Hanna surreptitiously by Theodor Adorno and Alma Mahler Werfel. They were brought to New York by Hanna on her flight from Nazi persecution, and were eventually found in her estate after her death. First discovered by George Perle, then deciphered and transcribed in German by Constantin Floros, they appear here in English for the first time."--Jacket
