Hans Schäffer papers online

The private papers of Hans Schäffer, a leading civil servant from 1918-1932 and later the director general of the Ullstein publishing house, offer a fascinating insight into the tumultuous political history of the Weimar Republic. In his diaries, Schäffer minutely recorded his daily meetings with Weimar’s major political players, from Hindenburg and Schleicher to Hilferding, Müller and Brüning.
