Initial inquiry 

I will make initial inquiries in various archives to find out if there is any material on file for the searched person, who is part of your Jewish-German origin. If the findings are positive, I will discuss the next steps with you in a video or audio call.  

Documentation

Selected scans and photos of significant documents from archives and online databases are produced as pdf documents with an English translation of the content.

The documentation contains maps of the places where the person or German-Jewish family lived. By arrangement, it can be supplemented with current photos of the places of residence or work.

The costs depend on the amount of material.
Therefore, I can only calculate the total costs after I have visited the archives and opened up the files.
Typically, the price range for documentation is between €500 and €1,500 including VAT.

I offer the documentation digitally as a PDF document.

Chronicle

The results from the individual archives will be processed chronologically and in a historical context, summarized and professionally laid out.

It includes maps of the places where the searched person lived, scans of documents from the archives, and can be supplemented by other royalty-free visual material. In consultation, current photos of the places of residence or work can also be included.

This individual design allows Avudim Berlin to provide a worthy framework for a lasting memorial to these German-Jewish lives – lives which often could not be freely chosen or lived independently.

The price depends on the amount of material, as this determines the follow-up work for research, preparation and layout.
Therefore, I can only make a binding calculation of the total final price after I have visited the archives and accessed the files.
Typically, the price range of a digital chronicle is between 1.500 and 3.000 € including VAT.

I offer the chronicle in two versions:
Digital as a pdf file or in printed form, including a USB stick, in several variants.
