Abstract [en]

Werner Fenchel was a pioneer in introducing duality in convexity theory. He got his PhD in Berlin, was forced to leave Germany, moved to Denmark, and lived during almost two years in Sweden. In a private letter he explained his views on the development of duality in convexity theory and the many terms that have been used to describe it. The background for his move from Germany is sketched.
