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.
