Bibliographic Collections

The German-Greek relationship has a long history behind it. Keywords such as the European Philhellenism, the Greek ʺBavarian ruleʺ, the national socialist occupation of Greece during the Second World War, the recruitment of Greek guest workers by the Federal Republic of Germany and the success of authors such as Nikos Kazantzakis or Petros Markaris in Germany give us the chance to take a closer look into the extent of this relationship. Nevertheless, these are indicative of merely a small portion of the ongoing political, economic, scientific and cultural transfer processes between the German and Greek cultural spaces, from the 18th century onwards.

In order to document this diversity, the Center for Modern Greece systematically compiles bibliographic records in the following collections:

  1. Literature about the German-Greek cultural transfer
  2. Modern Greek-German translations
  3. German-Modern Greek translations
  4. Literature about Greece in German
  5. Literature about Germany in Greek

The bibliographic data are tagged with relevant name entries in order to enable research on the protagonists and objects of the German-Greek scientific and cultural transfer.
