Article on Eva Walter (1900-1991)

In a recent issue of the Zurich-based WOZ, the weekly newspaper, Dr. Joanna Simonow, research assistant in the Department of History at the SAI, published an article on Eva Walter (1900-1991). Dr. Simonow describes the exciting life of the communist Eva Walter, who was part of the Indian independence movement. From 1950, she ran an "India Store" in Zurich, which received part of its start-up capital from the later Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, with whom Walter was friends. In addition to the brief outline of Eva Walter´s biography, Dr. Simonow´s article also includes an appeal to contemporary witnesses who know Eva and her sister Luise to get in touch with the academic.
