The Collection of Women's Personal Papers | Print |

The Collection of Women’s Personal Papers "Sammlung Frauennachlässe" was started in 1991 and aims to systematize and to assess private documents and photographs of women or couples or of children, relatives or friends of the women.

In 2012 (at the end of the research platform) the estates of 330 people were archived. The documents are dating mostly from the 19th and 20th centuries. They are partly very comprehensive and contain widely differing literary genres, from household records to hand-written or typed notes, diaries and calendrical notes, letters and other correspondence to official documents and school books, literary manuscripts and photographs.

You can see the current stock on the website of the Collection of Women's Personal Papers.

A databank of literature and a collection of selected contributions on historical and cultural studies on feminist autographical or biographical research complete the “Sammlung Frauennachlässe.” One goal of the research platform is also to establish a network with other similar European archives.
