"We know about Kallenbach through Gandhi. But we don't know how Kallenbach's ideology developed. These papers dating back to the 1930s shed light on Kallenbach's ideologies," Hasan, said.
"He appears to be sympathetic towards right-wing ideology which was gathering strength in the '30s."
The collection, which has 287 items and is divided into 13 groups, also focuses on Gandhi's relations with Kallenbach's brother Simon and niece Hana Lazar who have made various observations on the ways of Gandhi.
In addition, there are letters from various members of the freedom struggle such as Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Pherozeshah Mehta, C F Andrews, Mahadev Desai, Sushila Ben, Mira Ben, Harilal Gandhi, Devdas Gandhi and Ramdas Gandhi, among others.
Isabella Fyvie Mayo, the pioneering translator of Tolstoy's writings into English, also features in the collection through her letters to Gandhi and Kallenbach.
Apart from the photographs and letters, on display are memorabilia such as a khaadi scarf, Yarvada chakra and a Swaraj flag on khaadi cloth.
One can also see original copies of Young India and Harijan at the exhibition.
