Losses to the Library Caused by the War

Due to the evacuation of cultural property prompted by the Second World War, a considerable amount of the Leopoldina library’s inventory was relocated, but was not returned once the war ended. Those losses are documented here.

The catalogue is arranged according to authors and titles. Monographs as well as journals/series are listed in the right-hand column. Please note that there may be deviations from the original names, especially in case of older work. No references are given in the catalogue.

A targeted search for cultural objects that were unlawfully removed as a result of the war can be instituted in the database of the German state governments’ coordination office. The database also includes the Leopoldina monographs. We greatly appreciate any further information regarding books displaying the ownership marks and stamps of our library.
