Richard Ebeling narrates how they learned of the existence of these papers and traveled to Moscow to obtain them. He describes how Mises personal things, family correspondence, important documents, books of his personal library and papers were found, and reads to the audience a document where Ludwig von Mises details all the things he left in his room and what happened to them later on. Richard and Anna Ebeling describe their contents, which were written in various languages, and they talk about their work translating and preparing the books for editing and future reference.
