UCL now has access to Archiv Bibliographia Judaica – Deutschsprachiges Judentum Online

By Sarah Gilmore, on 7 September 2022

UCL staff and students now have access to Archiv Bibliographia Judaica – Deutschsprachiges Judentum Online

Since the Enlightenment, German-speaking Jews have built an impressive cultural heritage. But the persecution and extermination of the Jewish people during the Nazi era together with emigration since the 1930s destroyed, fragmented or scattered much of this extensive German-Jewish heritage. This database compiles and collects bio-bibliographic information on more than 20,000 German-speaking Jews who were known and less known figures in literature, philosophy, religion, art, music and politics. Based on the Archive Bibliographia Judaica (ABJ) in Frankfurt am Main, founded by Renate Heuer, the database is a unique document of German-Jewish heritage.
