The Innsbruck City Archive is running several digital projects with the aim of making material available online and processing it.

Innsbruck remembers

Innsbruck rem embers is a blog of the city archive where new articles about the city's history are published daily. The articles offer the story behind pictures, postcards, documents and countless little treasures from the archive. Here you can discover small pieces of Innsbruck's history as often as you like - about the monuments and churches, about diaries of the inhabitants from the First World War to small photos from everyday life in the past century.

Innsbrucker*innen - Adressbücher of the city of Innsbruck

Innsbrucker*innen is a project that makes the Adressbücher of the city of Innsbruck up to the late 19th century accessible online. This service is already available as full-text PDFs for download in many cities, and individual Innsbruck books are also already available online. However, the approach of this project is different: you can put your questions to more than 20,000 denselydructected pages from almost 100 years. The answers are in the interests of the researchers, as all the books can be searched at the same time. In a longitudinal axis that is probably unique in this type of source, insights can be gained into family and migration history as well as the architectural and economic history of the city of Innsbruck.

The project will accompany the archive for many years to come, but the key functions are now already accessible to the public. The staff of the City Archive look forward to your research questions and critical feedback. Any comments on reading and other errors will be appreciated.

Points in time

Points inTime are dedicated to the victims of the National Socialist terror regime in Innsbruck. The city of Innsbruck thus promotes the remembrance of those citizens who were murdered because of their religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or political views; of victims of Nazi military justice or conscientious objectors and deserters; of people who, from the point of view of Nazi ideology, were "biologically burdened" or who died as members of another social group marginalized by Nazi ideology.

Points in time thus commemorate people who were murdered or died in concentration camps, detention and extermination camps, ghettos and sanatoriums. We also commemorate those people who were driven to suicide by persecution, harassment and humiliation and those who died while fleeing the Nazi regime. We also commemorate the people who died as a result of imprisonment and forced labor during the Second World War and in the immediate aftermath.
