Kurt Waldheim Autograph

Kurt Josef Waldheim (born 1918) was an Austrian diplomat and conservative politician. He was Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981, and President of Austria from 1986 to 1992.

He served as First Secretary of the Legation in Paris from 1948, and in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Vienna from 1951 to 1956. In 1956 he was made Ambassador to Canada, returning to the Ministry in 1960, after which he became the Permanent Representative of Austria to the United Nations in 1964. For two years beginning in 1968, he was the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs in Austria serving for the Austrian People’s Party, before going back as Permanent Representative to the U.N. in 1970.

Waldheim had unsuccessfully sought election as President of Austria in 1971, but his second attempt on June 8, 1986, proved successful. 1986 also marked the beginning of what became known as the Waldheim Affair. Before the presidential elections, Alfred Worm, in the Austrian weekly news magazine Profil, revealed that there had been several omissions about Waldheim’s life between 1938 and 1945 in Waldheim’s recently-published autobiography.

During the controversy, Waldheim was defended by “nazi hunter” Simon Wiesenthal, who was severely criticized for this move.

In 1976 she received Cesar as Best Actress for “L’important c’est d’aimer“. In 1979 she got the same award for “L’histoire simple”. The sudden death of her son was a hard blow to her and she never managed to recover from this loss.

Oskar Werner Autograph

Oskar Werner Autograph: Signed color photo (from an earlier photo), signed in 1984, the year of his death.

4 x 6 inches, good condition.

The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Oskar Werner was 18 years old when he made his stage bow at the Burgtheater in Wien.
He was a lifelong pacifist, a pure, traditional mime, a gifted reciter.

“Werner’s definitive screen performance was the romantic intellectual Jules in Francois Truffaut’s Jules et Jim (1962), though it was his portrayal of the philosophical Dr. Schumann in Ship of Fools (1965) that earned the actor his only Oscar nomination.

His friendship with Truffaut soured after their second collaboration, Fahrenheit 451 (1967); exhibiting profound disillusionment, Truffaut complained (not without justification) that Werner had become a “cold” performer.

Oskar Werner died at the age of 62.
