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