History

So that these documents are not lost to history, the Deutsche Tagebucharchiv was founded in January 1998 by Frauke von Troschke. She was familiar with the Italian example in Pieve Santo Stefano , founded in 1985 by the well-known journalist Saverio Tutino, and had discovered that Germany had no institution devoted to the collection of personal memoirs. The small town of Emmendingen (15 km to the north of Freiburg, which has a large university) provided office space in the Old Historic Town Hall next to the market place.
