Jewish periodicals in Nazi Germany

Funding
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
Project duration 2004-2006

The Jewish periodicals in Nazi Germany represent an important historical resource for research into everyday life and the suffering of the Jewish community under National Socialist rule. The rarity of certain publications means that access to these is limited or highly problematical. The aim of the project is to digitise and catalogue the main Jewish periodicals founded in Germany after the National Socialists rose to power in 1933 (or shortly before) and to make these available for use. As most are organs of the - in some cases newly established - self-help organisations of the Jewish community, they represent a direct response to the persecution inflicted by the Nazi regime.

The journals and their articles are listed - and can be searched for - in the portal of the German National Library.

For legal reasons the digitised versions are currently only available for use in the reading rooms of the German National Library in Leipzig and Frankfurt am Main. German legislators issued new regulations concerning the use of out-of-commerce works in § 13d ff of the Copyright Administration Act which came into force in January 2014. This means that the digitised Jewish periodicals published in Nazi Germany can once again be made available for use online if they are out-of-commerce and have been licensed by the VG Wort collecting society. Licensing processes and procedures are currently being developed.

Please do not hesitate to contact the head of the Deutsches Exilarchiv 1933-1945, Dr. Sylvia Asmus, should you have any questions.
