The index of Die Welt is in German. The CZA holds almost all the issues of the newspaper, so that after the location of relevant information in the index, the researcher can order the specific issue of the newspaper that he needs.
An index of obituaries in the Mitteilungsblatt, - a german journal of "The Association of Immigrants from Central Europe" between the years 1933-1985- was prepared by the Society for the Commemoration of Max I. Bodenheimer and Hannah Henrietta Bodenheimer.
