Research – Aims and Subjects

The aims of the Paul Lazarus Foundation are to analyse the materials and the estates/bequests held in the archives that deal with the history of the Jews in the Rhein-Main area. An important tool for this is the genealogy database, which allows us to collect and manage person related data. In addition, the Foundation is generally concerned with the history and culture of German Jews from early modern times to the present.
