The music library of the late Dietfried Bernet, who died in 2011, has been donated to Bethlehem University by his widow, Johanna Bernet.
From the press release:

Mrs. Bernet shed light on the comparison her husband used to make between the situation in Vienna in the 1940s and the current situation in Palestine. He lived through the occupation in Vienna just like the students at Bethlehem University are living through the current occupation in Palestine. She believes that he would have been happy to know that his material has found a new home at Bethlehem University.
