The diverse history of both boroughs of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, separated for 28 years by a wall and fused into one district in 2001, offers many different linkages and points of contact for in-depth research.
Our archive includes a large number of documents and photographs, private donations/collections, as well as recorded memories and interviews with eyewitnesses to history from Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.
(Im)migration history, urban development, industrial history, and local remembrance culture could serve as potential fields of research for intended projects. At the moment, we are paying particular attention to the history and present of the borough of Friedrichshain.
