The database contains Wolfram Sievers’ complete service diaries (1941–1945) and offers a unique source to study the Nazi research network “Ahnenerbe.” This network was founded by Heinrich Himmler. It served from the very beginning to underpin Nazi ideology. At the end of the war, it included dozens of research facilities all over the “German Reich.” The “Ahnenerbe” became well known for its criminal medical experiments and the theft of cultural property. The managing director, Wolfram Sievers, expanded the “Ahnenerbe” network from 1935–1945 and documented all activities in great detail in his service diary. Sievers corresponded with officials of the Nazi regime and with German and international scientists, some of whom only made careers in the Federal Republic and the GDR. This edition of his work diary provides a unique “Who’s who” of German scientific history under National Socialism, which did not end in 1945.
