Hamburgisches Welt-Wirtschafts-Archiv (HWWA)

Folders by Subject Category System

In total 1452 categories, 9201 folders (bis 1949).

Of the PM20 Länder-/Sacharchiv up to 1949, only a rough estimate of one-fifth of the digitized holdings are indexed in folders and accessible via this category system. Many small and large countries such as Great Britain, China, India, France or the USA are missing at all or are only represented by a few folders originating from the “Forschungsstelle für das Übersee-Deutschtum”.

All unprocessed material is accessible under digitized films (in German), including material from the second filming (until 1960) - for copyright reasons, however, unfortunately only in the ZBW reading room. The complete subject category system is available online.
