“I am very pleased that these historical treasures, which have been hidden for understandable conservation reasons, are now being uncovered and made accessible to the interested public,” says Angela Malz, Director of the University Library. “I can only recommend taking advantage of both offers, as different exhibits are shown, but they also belong together. “I don’t want to reveal anything more,” she continues with a mysterious smile.
