Research of property and building
Due to the drastic changes through war and destruction research of history of numerous buildings becomes a true puzzle particulary if the exact location of earlier structures is difficult to identify due to urban reorganization.
All publicly available data on the history of buildings and their purposes can be obtained at BERLIN-MITTE-ARCHIV.
We also search for specific dokuments in other archives on behalf of owners or other authorized persons to optain further information about former and present properties.
In collaboration with the Office of Urban Research, Dr. Benedikt Goebel started in 2013 the research project "Stolen Mitte, The Aryanization of Jewish property in the Berlin center", which was shown in an exhibition at the Stadtmuseum Berlin 2013/14. The results can be researched online.
A current research project is "Invalidenstraße - history and stories". The results will be published soon.
