DescriptionTyped transcript of a letter from Johannes Stark, Berlin-Charlottenburg, Marchstr. 25, to Max von Laue.

Stark attacks Laue for rejecting a political rally of scholars which was meant to be part of a great national avowal for Adolf Hitler ("Teil des großen nationalen Bekentnisses des deutschen Volkes zu seinem Führer Adolf Hitler vor aller Welt"). Against this, he criticizes Laue for organizing a rally himself at the "Würzburger Physikertag" in favour of Albert Einstein and directed against the National Socialist government.
The reverse of the letter contains the written reply from Laue to Stark, Berlin, 1 September 1934: For the future Laue wishes no further private letters from Stark.
