Losses to the Library Caused by the War

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

The catalogue is arranged according to the authors and titles. Monographs as well as Journals/Series are listed in the right-hand column. Please note that there may be deviations in the form of some names, especially in the case of older works. 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 databank of the German state governments’ coordination office. The databank also includes the Leopoldina’s monographs. We greatly appreciate any information regarding books displaying the ownership marks and stamps of our library.
