Compact Memory
The collection contains 110 most important Jewish German newspapers and periodicals in Central Europe in the period from 1806-1938 and is one of the most important historic resources for Jewish Studies in modern times. The periodicals cover the complete range of religious, political, social, cultural and academic aspects of Jewish life. 

The database contains ca. 700.000 pages as images, some periodicals have been processed by OCR, others have been indexed thoroughly. The database offers advanced search options, downloading and printing of articles.

The database was sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in the years of 2000-2006. Partners of the project were the Judaica Division of the University Library Frankfurt am Main, Prof. em. Dr. Hans Otto Horch, former Professor at the Lehr- und Forschungsgebiet Europäisch-Jüdische Literatur- und Kulturgeschichte at the RWTH Aachen University and the Germania Judaica, Cologne.
