Archive of Jewish Life in Central Europe Going Online

“The Leo Baeck Institute, a New York research library and archive devoted to documenting the history of German-speaking Jewry, has completed the digitization of its entire archive, which will provide free online access to primary-source materials encompassing five centuries of Jewish life in Central Europe. The expanded archive, which will be available on Oct. 16, purports to be the first of its kind to be made available on the Internet in its entirety. The project, named DigiBaeck, offers digital 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, recipes and other ephemera chronicling the lives of everyday people.”
