Judaica Sammlung des Universitätsbibliothek der Goethe Universität

The Judaica Collection of the Frankfurt University Library

The University Library Frankfurt am Main owns the largest collection of Hebraica and Judaica in the Federal Republic of Germany and is one of the world’s great Judaica library collections. It was founded at the end of the 19th century through generous donations of Frankfurt Jewish philanthropists. Prof. Dr. Aron Freimann, Wikipediathe librarian until 1933, formed it into the most significant Judaica collection of the European continent before World War II. The collection suffered partial losses during National Socialism and the war.

Most of the historic collection has been digitized and is available online:

Hebrew Incunabula
Hebrew Manuscripts
Yiddish Prints
Freimann Collection
Compact Memory – Portal of German-Jewish Periodicals
Judaica Frankfurt
Rothschild-Collection
