The project offers online access to a collection that includes 3.5 million pages of material ranging from the personal papers and photographs of Albert Einstein and Moses Mendelssohn… to letters, diaries and even recipes chronicling the lives of everyday people.
In addition to documents in German and other languages the collection includes many English translations.
