Social History Collections


You can search and browse digital collections on social history and the history of the labour movement from the late 18th to the beginning of the 21st century. You have access to more than 900,000 digitised objects (archives, books, brochures, leaflets, photographs, posters, prints, cartoons, sound, films and videos) from 15 specialized archives and libraries in Europe. From the documents found here, you can easily go to the institution that holds the collection, and continue your search there.
