Data sets for historical events

Here are exemplary data sets listed, which have been created in different contexts or projects and are related to individual historical events. Therefore, they show only a small, but very interesting, part of the collections. In principle, the starting point is always the entrance page of the digitized collections; here you can find your way around the large subject groups of the Old Subject Catalogue. For history, ethnography and geography, digitized material can be found in a five-digit range. This set is also displayed via the OAI interface.
