Frankfurt 1933-1945


The continuing presence of occurrences of World War II gives rise to a great demand for answers on the role of various institutions during this time. For this reason the “Work Study Group Topography of the Nazi Period in Frankfurt am Main” has existed since 1999.

Goal of the Study Group, which is composed of various Frankfurt institutions from business and culture, is a comprehensively interlinked Internet profile on the presentation and processing of Frankfurt history between 1933 and 1945.

Using a threefold concept of topographical, chronological and thematic approaches the theme complex is illuminated from various angles. This creates a multi-perspective dynamic portal that fulfils both the needs of the increasing media recollection debate as well as those of appropriate communicational and educational programmes. The use of Internet opens up the influential history of the Nazi period in Frankfurt am Main for a wide public.
