The collection is based on a prize competition held in 1940, on the theme "My Life in Germany before and after Jan. 30, 1933."  The contest was sponsored by Harvard University; judges included faculty members Gordon Allport, Sidney B. Fay, and Edward Y. Hartshorne.  The narratives were used for a study on effects of National Socialism on German society and on German people.

The manuscript collection is housed in Houghton library.  You can consult this online finding aid.
