The HZB internal archive of documents
In the HZB internal archive, files from HZB administrative units are stored which are no longer needed in the units' day-to-day operations. After entering the archive, files are stored and, if the need arises, returned to the units where they have been generated in the first place. Historians and other individuals may be granted access to files of the archive if there is some legitimite interest in opening the files and if the embargo time, possibly 30 years or more, has passed.
As almost all of the records in the internal archive are in German we refer the reader, for a more detailed information, to the German version of this page.
