Items in its custody include those relating to Karl Kautsky, Augustin Souchy, Georg von Vollmar, Friedrich Adler, Max Nettlau, Alexander Berkman, Emma Goldman, Leon Trotsky (six continuous metres' worth of material), Wolfgang Abendroth and Wolfgang Harich, as well as the archives of Russia's Socialist-Revolutionary Party (1834-1934). Items belonging to anarchist and Trotskyist fighters in the Spanish Civil War are also numerous.
