German History in Documents and Images (GHDI) is
a comprehensive collection of primary source materials documenting Germany's
political, social, and cultural history from 1500 to the present. It comprises
original German texts, all of which are accompanied by new English translations,
and a wide range of visual imagery. The materials are presented in ten
sections, which have been compiled by leading scholars. All of the materials
can be used free of charge for teaching, research, and related purposes;
the site is strictly intended for individual, non-commercial use.
GHDI is an initiative of the German Historical Institute, Washington, DC. Made possible by the generous support of the Max Kade Foundation and the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius, the project has been undertaken in cooperation with the Friends of the German Historical Institute, the Bildarchiv Preußischer Kulturbesitz, and IEG-MAPS, Institute for European History, Mainz.
In August 2017, the GHI was awarded a three-year grant from the German Research Foundation to support the reconceptualization, expansion, and modernization of GHDI. A brief description can be found here. The grant period commenced in 2018 and runs through 2021.
