Swiss Literary Archives, Golo Mann Collection, Bern

The foundation of the Swiss Literary Archives (SLA) was founded by Friedrich Dürrenmatt: in 1987, he had stipulated that the donation of his estate was contingent on creating a national literary archive, which was founded shortly after his death in January 1991. The SLA incorporated the manuscript department of the then Swiss State Library and is now part of the Swiss National Library (NL). Today, the SLA collects literary estates, archives and collections of authors, publishers, scholars and critics of the 20th and 21st centuries whose lives and literary works are connected to Switzerland’s multilingual cultural space. The SLA's important holdings also include the partial estate of Golo Mann. It contains all of the manuscripts and typescripts of Golo Mann's works, such as the Wallenstein Complex, as well as his entire correspondence.
