Exilpresse digital - German exile journals 1933-1945

Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
Project duration 1997-2003

The purpose of the project of the Deutsches Exilarchiv 1933-1945 of the German National Library in Frankfurt am Main was to digitise selected exile newspapers and journals from its own holdings and those of the Sammlung Exil-Literatur 1933-1945 of the German National Library in Leipzig and other libraries. The German National Library contributed "Exilpresse digital" in its capacity as the partner library both of the "Sammlung Deutscher Drucke" working group, whose post-1913 time segment it represents, and of the DFG's "Verteilte Digitale Forschungsbibliothek" support programme aimed at protecting endangered library holdings through digitisation. This also represents the library's contribution to the "Bibliotheca universalis" project supported by the Ministerial Conference of the seven leading industrialised countries (G7).

The digitised journals and their articles are listed - and can be searched for - in the portal of the German National Library.
It can now once again be accessed both online and in the reading rooms of the German National Library in Leipzig and Frankfurt am Main.
On the basis of expert appraisals and developments in copyright law, it would now appear reasonable to make the digitised Exile Press available again online. The PEN Internation Centre of German Writers Abroad is also in favour of putting the digitised Exile Press online. The organisation believes that granting electronic access to these resources makes a major contribution to understanding the history of exile.

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