Title

Collections of the Publikationsstelle Berlin-Dahlem (PuSte) – Partial stock of the Image Archive

Description

The partial collection of the Berlin-Dahlem Publication Office housed in the Image Archive of the Herder Institute comprises around 1,000 photographs (prints) from the Greater East (Central) Europe region. These include documentation photographs of architectural and art monuments as well as photographs of cityscapes and street scenes. This material has been integrated into the Image Archive’s topographic collection and indexed as part of the analog system. The collection also contains a photograph album documenting the lives of Livonians in Latvia that was produced during a trip initiated by the Reichsleiter Rosenberg Taskforce and can be researched online in the image catalog. In addition, there are materials yet to be cataloged that are rather propagandistic in nature, such as photographs depicting Polish caricatures of German soldiers and photographs of Soviet kolkhozes. At present, there is only very limited access to these materials.

History/Provenance

The photographic materials that were gathered by the Berlin-Dahlem Publication Office (PuSte) during its years of operation (1931–1945) were confiscated in Coburg by the US Army together with other relocated materials (including books and maps). After being temporarily stored in Oberursel in 1947/48, they were taken to Washington DC where they were held in the Library of Congress. With the help of the Federal Foreign Office, the former head of the PuSte, Johannes Papritz (1989–1992) succeeded in getting the collection sent to Marburg between 1957 and 1964. In the 1970s and 1980s, further photographic material from the private collection of Wolfgang Kohte (1907–1984), the former deputy head of the PuSte, was handed over to the Herder Institute.
