Contemporary History Digital

With Contemporary History Digital (Zeitgeschichte digital), the ZZF develops its own digital research infrastructure for contemporary history. It opens up the online projects developed and editorially supervised at the institute and consolidates them with a wealth of digital resources under one roof. The platform offers centralised access to its entire programme: all entries are searchable with the help of a comprehensive subject classification. Specialised repositories for research data and retro-digitalised publications are also component parts of the portal.

Since 2017, the "Zeitgeschichte digital-Preis" has been awarded annually by the Friends of the Institute of the ZZF Potsdam. More about the nominations for the "Zeitgeschichte digital-Preis” 2020 (in german)
