    Scope and Content of Collection

    This collection of writings, reports, and clippings relating to the international communist movement and to Jews was assembled by the Gesamtverband Deutscher Antikommunistischer Vereinigungen, a German governmental anti-communist and anti-Semitic propaganda agency affiliated with the Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda. It was used as an intelligence source on the communist movement worldwide, and provided fuel for the ministry's propaganda campaigns. Most of the material is in German.


    The collection is arranged in four series: News Clippings, Monitoring Reports, Manuscripts, and Printed Matter and Photographs.
