Trial access to History Commons: Weimar and Nazi Germany
By Sarah Gilmore, on 5 January 2023
UCL has trial access to History Commons: Weimar and Nazi Germany until 3rd February 2023.
History Commons: Weimar and Nazi Germany is the only digital English language primary source archive on Germany that spans the entire interwar period from the 1918 armistice to the outbreak of World War II. It includes nearly 600,000 pages of declassified, exclusive, previously undigitized files sent to the UK Foreign Office from embassies, covert contacts, and other sources.
History Commons: Weimar and Nazi Germany documents an intense time of hyperinflation, political extremism, and seizures of power. It details the aftermath of World War I, recovery following the war, the Great Depression, and Hitler’s rise, providing contemporaneous accounts, documents, reports, and correspondence of how Western democracies struggled with fascism and autocracy.
