– work in progress

exil.arte's most significant mission is the documentation of personalities in the sphere about musicians, composers, music theorists and other music professionals ostrazised, persecuted or killed by National Socialist Regime. Therefore, exil.arte records their musical estates worldwide. Each entry in the database below provides all relevant information, including in which archive or collection the estate is currently located.

The vast compositional estates of émigrés composers, located worldwide in archives, libraries, universites or private collections, are being continously recorded in the database below and presented on this website. The search is set up for composer's names, title of their works or musical genres.
