Summary
This collection consists of photocopied excerpts taken from documents held in the 'Russian State Military Archive' of the 'Federal Archive Service of Russia' in Moscow concerning the International Paneuropean Union. The material is a selection of the correspondence sent and received by R. Coudenhove-Kalergi. In 1924 R. C.-K. set up a Head Office in the Hofburg in Vienna and held a large correspondence with personalities from all over Europe in order to publicise his ideas and set up national committees of the International Paneuropean Union. He also organised 'Paneuropean Congresses' on political, agrarian and economic matters and carried out various opinion polls on Paneuropean matters
Biographical or historical data
Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (16 November 1894 (Tokyo [Japan]) - 27 July 1972 (Schruns [Austria]) was the son of an Austro-Hungarian count and diplomat and a Japanese lady. The cosmopolite philosopher, writer and politician Count R. Coudenhove-Kalergi became one of the pioneers of European federation and unity by publishing in 1923 the book "Pan-Europa". In 1926 he founded the 'International Paneuropean Movement' which inspired A. Briand in his 'Memorandum on the Organization of a Regime of European Federal Union' in 1930. After the war, having come back from the United States of America to Europe, he joins the pro-European circles and movements efforts by founding in 1947 the 'European Parliamentary Union' and in participating in 1948 in the Hague peace congress. All along his lifetime he advocated a peaceful, humanistic, multi-ethnical and -cultural Europe which included Eastern Europe. His are amongst others the ideas of creating common European institutions and symbols like a flag and an anthem, and a single currency. He was the first recipient of the 'International Charlemagne Prize of the City of Aachen' in 1950. The archives of R. C.-K.are kept by the 'Centre d'archives et de recherches européennes: Institut européen de l'Université de Genève'
