The online project “1933: The Beginning of the End of German Jewry” presents a variety of primary source materials that bear witness to the disenfranchisement and exclusion of German Jews, as well as to aspects of their everyday life.
Aufbau began publication in 1934 as a newsletter for the German-Jewish Club of New York. By then the club was ten years old and its membership was steadily increasing. In the beginning, the newspaper contained mostly news about club activities, articles about Jewish culture and contemporary events, and helpful facts for Jewish refugees. Overtime, its articles focused more and more on international events and especially the treatment of Jews in Germany. Aufbau became one of the leading anti-Nazi publications of the German press in exile. Many well-known personalities wrote for the publication, including Hannah Arendt, Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, and Stefan Zweig.
The on-line catalog of the European Network of Judaica and Hebraica Libraries is one of the foremost bibliographic sources in the field of Jewish culture. It contains over 200,000 entries, representing the holdings of the member libraries.
