German History in Documents and Images (GHDI) is
a comprehensive collection of primary source materials documenting Germany's
political, social, and cultural history from 1500 to the present. It comprises
original German texts, all of which are accompanied by new English translations,
and a wide range of visual imagery. The materials are presented in ten
sections, which have been compiled by leading scholars. All of the materials
can be used free of charge for teaching, research, and related purposes;
the site is strictly intended for individual, non-commercial use.
GHDI is an initiative of the German Historical
Institute, Washington, DC. Made possible by the generous support of
the Max Kade Foundation and the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius, the project has
been undertaken in cooperation with the Friends
of the German Historical Institute, the Bildarchiv
Preußischer Kulturbesitz, and IEG-MAPS, Institute for European History, Mainz.
