Companion to an exhibit from 1996 of items from the Saxon State Library. "The most precious holdings of the Saxon State Library were moved [in 1939]. ... Because of this, they largely survived the bombing raids of February and March 1945." The site features a brief chronology of Dresden, Germany, through 1919, photographic views (mainly 1930-1949), and images of materials, including medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and Romantic era items.
