Friends and colleagues at the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exile Studies were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Andreas Mytze.

As editor of the journal europäische Ideen, which he founded in 1973, his contacts with East German dissidents earned him a Stasi dossier. He moved from Berlin to London, where for many years he cultivated contacts with former refugees from Nazism and contributed significantly to research into the literary culture of the German-speaking exiles.
