Local family database Jews in the German Reich

This database contains data on persons of Jewish faith or Jewish descent who lived in the former German Reich within its 1914 borders, or who are closely associated with this area.
I have tried to list all sources that I have used, whether in part or to a greater extent. If a source is missing, please let me know.
This database is far from being representative for all regions or error-free. Corrections and additions are welcome:

You are encouraged to participate.

(1) Do you find entries about Jews in any documents?
Please kindly inform me of these finds by
(a) giving me the source in question if it is accessible on the internet (title, year, image number or document number) or
(b) sending me pictures of entries if you want to save me time and make it enjoyable for me.

(2) Do you have pictures that can give a face to the people in the database?
Provided that you have permission to provide me with these images for the database, I would be very happy. If pictures of people are not available, you could also contribute pictures of gravestones, commercial or residential buildings, newspaper advertisements and similar images.

(3) Do you have literature about Jews that you would like to give away?
In my private research library, I collect many works on Jewish communities and personalities, and also other kinds of Judaica. If you want to downsize your library or submit duplicates, I would be very happy.
