Newspaper clippings collection
Between 1930 and 1999 the Ibero-American Institute (IAI) collected over 350,000 newspaper clippings on Latin America, Spain and Portugal from German and European press publications. The articles have been categorized by country and subject and indexed chronologically within each individual subject area.
The IAI is also home to two other collections of newspaper clippings, which were compiled at other institutes: the combined collection of two former GDR organizations – the Institut für Internationale Politik und Wirtschaft (Institute for International Politics and Economics) and the Deutsches Institut für Zeitgeschichte (German Institute of Contemporary History) – and the collection of the former Institut für Iberoamerika-Kunde (Institute for Ibero-American Studies), today known as the German Institute of Global and Areas Studies (GIGA).
The IAI also houses a number of smaller collections of newspaper clippings.
Collection featuring reviews of translations of Pablo Neruda’s writings
Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was a Chilean poet and author who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Neruda supported Salvador Allende when he ran for presidency in 1970. In 2012 the Luchterhand-Verlag (Munich) donated six ring-binders to the Ibero-American Institute (IAI) containing reviews (and accompanying materials on radio and TV programs) of the publishing house’s translations of Neruda’s works into German. The collection dates from 1968 to 2009.
Walter Krause Collection
In 2011 Walter Krause donated 14 ring-binders containing approx. 5,000 paper clippings on the topic of space travel to the Ibero-American Institute (IAI). They date from 1956 to 2010 and were taken mainly from Argentinian (La Prensa, La Nación, Clarín) and German (Main-Echo, Badische Neueste Nachrichten, Rhein-Zeitung) newspapers.
Newspaper clippings archive compiled by the German Institute of Contemporary History and the Institute for International Politics and Economics
Between 1966 and 1990, two organizations from the former GDR – the Deutsches Institut für Zeitgeschichte (German Institute of Contemporary History) and the Institut für Internationale Politik und Wirtschaft (Institute for International Politics and Economics) – collected articles on Latin America and the Caribbean from European newspapers. The collection focuses on politics and economics, particularly in Chile, Cuba and Nicaragua, and contains around 76,250 newspaper clippings.
Newspaper clippings archive compiled by the Institute for Ibero-American Studies
The Institute for Ibero-American Studies (IIK) was founded in 1962 as part of the German Overseas Institute in Hamburg (today known as the German Institute of Global and Areas Studies – GIGA). In 2007 it underwent an institutional restructuring process and donated its press clippings archive to the Ibero-American Institute (IAI). The collection of some 500,000 newspaper clippings dates from 1966 to 1999 and contains articles from the German and European press on all of the countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Newspaper clippings may not be taken out on loan. None of the collections have been indexed in a catalog. Country files are available for viewing on request and copies may be made of the clippings. To view the collection, please arrange an appointment in advance.
