Eugen Wilhelm’s Diaries


The lawyer and politician Eugen Wilhelm (1866-1951), Mayor of Strasbourg, was a longstanding member of the Scientific-Humanitarian Committee and the Jahrbücher fur sexuelle Zwischenstufen under the pseudonym “Numa Praetorius”. At the request of the Magnus Hirschfeld Society, Dr. Régis Schlagdenhauffen contacted family members and located the estate and personal papers of Eugen Wilhelm. It turned out that he kept decades of diaries, which were preserved. They are being evaluated and prepared for publication by Dr. Schlagdenhauffen and Kevin Dubout.
