The Remarque Institute was created at New York University in 1995 under the direction of Professor Tony Judt. Its purpose is to support and promote the study and discussion of Europe and to encourage and facilitate communication between Americans and Europeans. The Institute was named after Erich Maria Remarque, whose widow, Paulette Goddard, made a generous bequest to New York University.
