    Historical Note

    The Germany. Deutsche Kongress-Zentrale (DKZ) was founded in 1934, and since November 13, 1936, was subordinated to the Reichsministerium fur Volksaufklarung und Propaganda of the German government. The DKZ regulated all organizational congresses, conventions, and meetings taking place in Germany. It issued permits, set dates, and coordinated the meetings with congreses scheduled abroad. Most private, semi-official, or official organizations in which the German citizenry participated are represented in this collection. The records include correspondence, memoranda, pamphlets, conference proceedings, clippings, and other printed matter for the period between 1870 and 1943, relating to both German and international congresses and conferences in the field of politics, art and sciences, economics, social welfare, trade and industry, labor, and education.
