Our archives are continually expanding as we acquire more information about Jewish biographies and aspects of Jewish life in Augsburg and Bavarian Swabia. Many of these records have already been made available to the public in our publications, our permanent exhibition or our temporary exhibitions. Records from our archives feature prominently, for example, in our LEBENSLINIEN – LIFELINES series, which traces the history of Jewish life in Augsburg and surroundings via selected family biographies.

The archives are enriched and expanded through donations, loan items and contemporary-witness interviews with Swabian Jews and their descendants. Original records make up a small, highly valuable part of the Jewish Museum archives.
