Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Beginning in 1954 The Wiener Library and the Institute for Contemporary History (IfZ) in Munich worked jointly on an edition of documents (Dokumentenwerk) regarding the persecution of Jews in the Nazi era. Initiated by the Ministry of Interior (BMI) and funded by the Federal Agency for Homeland Service (BHD) this project was part of larger journalistic endeavors by these two authorities to fight and prevent Antisemitism in West Germany. Due to ongoing problems the Dokumentenwerk was cancelled eventually in May 1963.
Dr. Johann Wolfgang Brügel (1905–1986) was a Czech solicitor and publicist who had fled to England in 1939. As a freelancer he worked for The Wiener Library in the postwar years.
