20th Century German History: Daily Reports of the Gestapo Headquarters in Vienna, 1938–1945 / Deutsche Geschichte im 20. Jh.: Tagesrapporte der Gestapo Wien, 1938–1945

No less than 741 daily reports with approximately 5,795 pages have been analyzed for this edition. Some 70 reports are missing. The digital facsimiles can be searched both in full text and by using an index of names and subjects. In all, the database provides information about 16,000 men and women either arrested or being kept under surveillance by the Gestapo. The contents of this database can be searched separately or in combination with the contents of the National Socialism, Holocaust, Resistance and Exile 1933 – 1945 database.

From 1934 on, the Regional Gestapo Headquarters throughout the entire German Reich had to report all political incidents of the previous 24 hours to Berlin. The purpose of these reports was to outline the mood, the political situation and security measures. This regulation was later applied to Austria, following its annexation.

 

In cooperation with the "Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance (DÖW)", Vienna, and the "Forschungs- und Dokumentationszentrum Kriegsverbrecherprozesse" at the Philipps-Universität Marburg, the daily reports of the Gestapo regional headquarters in Vienna are now published for the first time and thus available for historical research. For no other Gestapo regional headquarters is such a concentration of source material available.

 

Until the demise of the Nazi regime some 810 reports were sent from Vienna to the central headquarters in Berlin, regularly providing information falling under the following rubrics:

  • Left wing opposition, such as the KPÖ (Austrian communist party) and other Marxist groups

  • National opposition ("Vaterländische Front")

  • Opposition (civil disobedience, recalcitrance, crimes of utterance, listening to foreign radio transmissions)

  • Catholic movement / political Catholicism

  • NSDAP and affiliations

  • Jews

  • The press

  • Sects

  • Economic issues

  • Other, such as forced labor ("prohibited contacts"), Poland ("migrant workers")

For this database fundamental primary sources on the National Socialist state and the NSDAP, Nazi ideology and propaganda, National Socialist justice and legislation, on resistance and persecution, and annihilation and expulsion in the "Third Reich" have been compiled and digitized.

 

The approx. 40,000 primary sources with about 450,000 pages include:

  • administration files and correspondence from the highest authorities of the "Third Reich", especially from the party chancellery of the NSDAP,

  • situation and status reports of the secret state police authorities (Geheime Staatspolizei, SD-Sicherheitsdienst of the SS and Reichssicherheitshauptamt) from the Reich and the annexed and occupied territories,

  • Adolf Hitler’s speeches, writings and orders from 1925 to 1945,

  • the diaries of Joseph Goebbels from 1923 to 1945,

  • indictments and judgements of the Nazi People’s Court (Volksgerichtshof) and the Higher Regional Courts of Vienna and Graz, in which thousands of cases of high treason against opponents of the regime were heard, some of them sensational,

  • programmatic writings, speeches, political testaments, camouflaged writings and leaflets by opponents of the regime and emigrants,

  • expatriation and deportation lists,

  • the previously unpublished card index on the Nuremberg war crimes trials, which indexes some 30,000 documents of evidence from the prosecution.

 

The variety and relevance of the content of the digitized sources, the unique extent to which the documents are indexed, and the huge amount of biographical material make the database a unique research instrument and one which points modern source research in new directions.

FBIS Daily Report Annexes, 1974–1996
FBIS Daily Report Annexes, 1974–1996

Like the Reports themselves, FBIS Daily Report Annexes, 1974-1996 offers international views and perspectives on historical events from thousands of monitored broadcasts and publications. Created by the U.S. intelligence community to benefit analysts and policy makers, Annexes were “For Official Use Only.” Although a very small number of copies may have found their way into the Government Documents collections of some libraries, no institution outside of the Central Intelligence Agency holds all of the records. Full-text searchable for the first time, FBIS Daily Report Annexes features individual citations for each item as well as highlighted events to assist student researchers.

As the United States’ principal historical record of political open source intelligence for more than half a century, the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Report is an indispensable source for insights into decades of turbulent world history. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record, transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services, and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Accordingly, it provides a wealth of information from all countries outside of the U.S.—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

Hitler: Sources, 1924–1945 / Hitler. Quellen, 1924–1945

Hitler’s written legacy as contained in the database represents a unique source for studying Hitler’s world-view and his political ambitions. The most important resource for the database is the edition published by the Institute of Contemporary History (IFZ) titled “Hitler – Speeches, Writings, Proclamations” (1925–33). It focuses on Hitler’s speeches, by far the most effective propaganda tools for the National Socialist movement up to 1933. The edition is based on many years of research as well as a thorough evaluation of the news coverage of Hitler’s appearances as a speaker. In addition, the database contains the more than 1,700 documents from the Max Domarus edition (1932–1945) that first appeared in 1965. These documents are incorporated into a commentary that provides a chronology of events and historical background information as well as the author’s interpretations of Hitler’s political utterances. The source collection is supplemented by documentation of Hitler’s trial for high treason in 1924.

With an emphasis on communist and developing countries, this digital edition of Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports, 1957-1995, contains a wealth of hard-to-find social science, scientific, and technical materials translated from many languages; in fact, few libraries or institutions outside of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Library of Congress hold a comprehensive microform edition, especially for the first two decades following the founding of JPRS.

Readex

From the height of the Cold War to the dawn of the Internet and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, JPRS reports document the changes on the ground during that tumultuous time. JPRS—acting as a unit within the Central Intelligence Agency—was established in March 1957 as part of the United States Department of Commerce’s Office of Technical Services, about six months before the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1. JPRS staffers prepared translations for use by U.S. government officials, various agencies, and the research and industrial communities.

During the Cold War, the reports were primarily translations rather than analysis or commentary, balancing political coverage with scientific and technical topics. Over time, however, that scope expanded to cover environmental concerns, world health issues, nuclear proliferation, and more.

Prize Papers Online 1: American Revolutionary War and Fourth Anglo-Dutch War
Prize Papers Online 1: American Revolutionary War and Fourth Anglo-Dutch War

Prize Papers Online 1 contains approximately 7,000 interrogations of members of the crew of ships taken during the American Revolutionary War and Fourth Anglo-Dutch War (ca. 1775-1784). It shows images of each interrogation (of two, three, sometimes even six or more pages). Answers to the fourteen most researched questions are transcribed and stored in a searchable database.


The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Thirteen Colonies, but gradually grew into a war between Britain on one side and the newly formed United States, France, and its allies the Dutch Republic, and Spain, on the other. The Fourth Anglo-Dutch War (1780–1784) was a conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Dutch Republic. The war, tangentially related to the American Revolutionary War, broke out over British and Dutch disagreements on the legality and conduct of Dutch trade with Britain's enemies in that war.

The War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) involved most of the powers of Europe over the question of Maria Theresa's succession to the realms of the House of Habsburg. The Seven Years' War took place between 1754 and 1763 with the main conflict being in the seven-year period 1756–1763. It involved most of the great powers of the time and was driven by the antagonism resulting from overlapping interests in colonial and trade empires, and from territorial and hegemonial conflicts in the Holy Roman Empire.
