Selected vocabulary: Archivportal-D   Info


The Thesaurus on the Weimar Republic (1918-1933) in the online collection "Weimar Republic" of the Archivportal-D provides access to archival records of this historical epoch in a thematically structured manner.
It was developed as part of a DFG project (2018-2021) led by the Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg. The data basis was formed by digitized records and indexing data from the projects "Weimar – die erste deutsche Demokratie" (Bundesarchiv) and "Von der Monarchie zur Republik – Digitalisierung von Quellen des Landesarchivs zur Demokratiegeschichte" (Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg).
The thesaurus currently consists of about 1000 descriptors (main focus: subject terms) with GND and Wikidata references, to which central system positions of the systematics are assigned. They represent the most important subject areas (including government and administration; economy and finance; society and social affairs; culture) and regions (Deutsches Reich; foreign countries; ceded territories) of the Weimar Republic.

An enrichment of the Thesaurus at descriptor level by further participating archives in the online collection "Weimar Republic" as well as its subsequent use for further research purposes is possible and desired.

An extension of the thesaurus and the systematics to further subject areas is planned.
