Konzentration AG

Stamp of Konzentration AG and later stamping: "Weiter überlassen dem Propagandaminister" ("Allocated to the Minister of Propaganda")

Since 2011, two books from the stock of the library of the Konzentration AG could be returned to the legal successor, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

Founded by the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in Berlin in 1925, the company was a holding company for all of the party's commercial enterprises, including the patron publishers and printers. It was expropriated in 1933 after the banning of the SPD. It was refounded in 1946 as Konzentration GmbH.

The returned books are from various sources of the Berlin City Library, but in all of them there are traces of intermediate ownership of the NSDAP Reich Ministry for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda ("Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda").
