Database of Jewish-Owned Businesses in Nazi Berlin

This is the blog of the Database of Jewish Businesses in Nazi Berlin. The database was set up between 2005 and 2012 as part of a research project at the Humboldt University in Berlin. The foundation of the database is a complete indexing of all relevant entries of the Berlin commercial register, published in the German state gazette, the “Deutsche Reichsanzeiger und Preußischen Staatsanzeiger”. It includes information collected from many different primary sources, contemporary newspapers, handbooks and directories and other printed material. The database contains key information on more then 8 000 companies that were regarded as Jewish and therefore persecuted from 1933 on. This includes the name of the company, its address, legal form, economic sector, the date of the entry of a company into the commercial register, the date of its deletion, changes of the owners or managers and all references. The database also holds the raw data of another 44 000 companies that could not be identified as Jewish.
