Processing Note

Original order was not always present but was maintained where possible. Most of the material related to Postwar was filed and housed together prior to processing, while correspondence, material from Judt's lectures, classes and other books were somewhat scattered.

Administrative files, student files and much of the correspondence had their own filing system and likely came from the Remarque Institute offices. The order of these files was maintained.

The folder titles Judt created were retained throughout the collection when possible. However, many titles lacked sufficient information and some did not match the folder contents. In these cases, additional detail was added. In other cases, loose material was integrated into the proper series and/or subseries, where discernible, and given folder titles.

See notes at the series level for additional details.
