The many and diverse titles published pre-war reflect an active Jewish community life, with periodicals for jewish women, craftmen and fraternity students published by regional Jewish communities, sports clubs, and professional associations. Most stopped publishing during the 1930s, while others were created under the Nazis in order to assist the Jewish community preparing for emigration.
As Jewish life slowly revived postwar, the Library has been collecting national and regional weekly and monthly titles. We also hold a monthly Russian-language newspaper for the Jewish community in Germany as many new members have emigrated from the former Soviet Union.
We also hold the typescripts on microfilm of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency's (JTA) daily news bulletin (1923-1950).
