Dr. Bruno Kreisky Foundation Archives

Bruno Kreisky and the industrialist Karl Kahane founded the Bruno Kreisky Archives in 1984. In February of 1985, they began their operation. Their goal was to create a comprehensive system for indexing and analyzing written material from Kreisky. They also index audiovisual material and pictures from Kreisky’s life as a politician, diplomat and statesman since the 1930s.

These important historical documents are combined with personal accounts from Dr. Bruno Kreisky. They make for a valuable, political documentation of a period of Austrian history.
The experiences that Kreisky had and the strategies that he implemented as a politician are also included. In this manner they have been made available to the public, including future generations of politicians.

The members of the Archive research historical topics using the available materials.
