Here is where an image, film and sound database is to be established, which will make parts of the Archives’ extensive photo collections as well as film and sound records available for use.
If you wish to conduct searches in the complete photo, film and sound collection, please contact Susanne Uebele.
By prior registration, you are also welcome to visit our Archives in order to conduct photo, film and sound searches there. The photos, which are systematically ordered according to persons, institutions and events, are accessible to the Archives’ visitors via catalogues and for the most part also in the form of finding aids
(= copies of the original photos with image captions). Moreover, the film and sound collections are also accessible and researchable via catalogues.
