Jewish Community in Nuremberg appeals for help with investigating the so-called “Stürmer” or “Streicher” Library

Date 2015.09.22

The Jew­ish Com­mu­ni­ty (IKG) in Nurem­berg owns the so-called "Stürmer" or "Stre­ich­er" Li­brary, a col­lec­tion of some 10,000 vol­umes stolen from their pre­vi­ous own­ers by the Na­tion­al So­cial­ists. The IKG is now work­ing to iden­ti­fy the pre­vi­ous own­ers in or­der to re­turn the vol­umes to their le­gal heirs. In or­der to con­duct the prove­nance re­search, the IKG re­quires in­for­ma­tion and find­ings from ge­nealog­i­cal re­search. The re­spon­si­ble Nurem­berg city com­mis­sion­er for the IKG col­lec­tion, Leibl Rosen­berg, has called on ge­neal­o­gists and his­to­ri­ans for any in­for­ma­tion which can help iden­ti­fy the pre­vi­ous own­ers, heirs or le­gal suc­ces­sors.
