The research project
The project “Jüdische Pflegegeschichte / Jewish Nursing History – Biographies and Institutions in Frankfurt am Main” is devoted to the presentation of the wealth of information related to Jewish nursing history in Frankfurt am Main. The time focus, in view of the vast amount of information, is on the period from 1870, the beginning of modern Jewish nursing in Frankfurt, and the end of National Socialism. This project provides a rich source of information not only for family biographical research as well as scientific research; but also for anyone who is interested in Jewish social and cultural history and in the history of the city of Frankfurt am Main.
The project is located at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, realised with the generous support of many sponsors.
