    Рosted 26 April 2022 13:50

    With support of the State Archival Service of Ukraine, in a cooperation with Central State Archives of Supreme Bodies of Power and Government of Ukraine and Archival Information Systems on the official archives’ website the access to more than 130000 scan-copies of documents of the Reichsleiter Rosenberg operative headquarters’ (Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg) fond is restored. The documents were digitized within the joint project with the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. The international project was implemented by the archive in 2005–2010, and already on September 10, 2010, the Ukrainian part of the collection was first presented on the Internet on the archive’s website. However, due to technical problems, the electronic resource has not worked until now.

    Reminder: Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg, ERR was confiscating cultural heritage on the territories occupied by nazi Germany, during the Second World War.   

    The displacement of archival, library, and museum treasures by the Nazis was carried out with the aim of creating a source base for the provision of scientific institutions of the Reich, the use of information in the interests of implementing war plans, maintaining and spreading Nazi ideology and propaganda. 

    According to the calculations made by ERR, only to the main storages in Germany, as of October, 1944, were displaced by railways about 1.5 million wagons of archival documents and books and 400 tons of it by sea.    

    In the Central State Archives of Supreme Bodies of Power and Government of Ukraine are stored three archival fonds, which are a part of ERR collection.
