HIST 337 Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany

This guide is a companion to research assignments for Ms. Höhn's course.

German-American newspapers (English language)

CRL has a strong collection of U.S. ethnic newspapers and magazines.  Select ethnicity from drop down menu here.  The result list cannot be sorted by date, so you need to scroll through to find the period you are interested in.  If you click the "limit/modify search" button near top of page, you can limit to English language. Also on that page, under the Reproduction Type drop down you can select "Electronic" to see what holdings are digitized, but it doesn't seem to be accurate, i.e. there are digital versions not captured in that modification.  

Keep in mind that German language newspapers could include photos, illustrations and comics.

This is not a comprehensive list of WWII era holdings, but a place to start:
