Online-Lexicon of the Culture and History of Germans in Eastern Europe

Scholarly reference work on the research topic

This technical lexicon is intended to meet the need for scientifically sound information about the culture and history of the Germans in Eastern Europe. The lexicon can be used as a reference book offering reliable data, and includes critical analyses of traditional approaches to the writing of history. It also serves as a reference point for current academic research and specialised discourse.

The lexicon is sub-divided into four sections and contains articles about locations and cities, regions and countries (covering modern states as well as historical countries). It also includes specialist terms and concepts (descriptions of groups, territorial and academic terms, ideological concepts, institutions and religious communities).
