Help Topics Topic search

We recommend topics-based research to people that want to explore a topic but don’t have specific keywords in mind (for example: if you are looking for something related to colonialism).

It is important to understand that topics are assigned by archival institutions manually, according to their classification systems, or through crowdsourcing projects, and that they are not comprehensive of everything available on Archives Portal Europe on a determined subject - at this stage, only our French, German, Polish, Latvian and Finnish partners have contributed to their topics tagging.

Topics are very much a work in progress - you can help us by creating an account: it’s free!
