Keywords: Leo Spitzer; Italienische Kriegsgefangenenbriefe; Umschreibungen des Begriffes 'Hunger' im Italienischen; Censorship; World War I.

A heretofore unknown typescript, written by Leo Spitzer in 1916 while working for the Austrian military censorship, has been recently found in the Kriegsarchiv in Vienna. The document helps to define the origin and the mutual relationships between the "Italienische Kriegsgefangenenbriefe" (1921) and the "Umschreibungen des Begriffes 'Hunger' im Italienischen" (1920), as well as to reconstruct the original text of few letters included in the collection.
