Edition & Research

The Foundation Chancellor Adenauer House carries out research on Konrad Adenauer and his time. It publishes documents from the Adenauer estate in an academically commented source edition (Rhöndorf Edition) and holds conferences on contemporary historical topics (Rhöndorf Talks). Other publications of various kinds, from academic anthologies to richly illustrated readers, deepen the understanding of the politics and personality of the founding Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany.
