Selected records of the Deutsche Bank
Includes individual files on hundreds of German companies. The records are organized by industrial sector and contain mainly public documents, such as company reports, stock offers, or invitations to board meetings. There are also many files referring specifically to the activities of the Deutsche Bank, including the personal correspondence of leading executives. Key sections also include the records of the legal department (Rechtsabteilung), the economic analysis department (Volkswirtschaftliche Abteilung), and the administrative office (Generalsekretariat). Another major section deals with the interests of the Deutsche Bank in countries outside Germany. Among this vast collection there are a number of files relating specifically to anti-Jewish measures such as "Aryanization" and confiscation. The files concerning other German companies are relevant for topics ranging from the foreclosure of Jewish mortgages to the involvement of business in the exploitation of forced labor.
