Since the beginning of February 2018, the institutes and libraries of the Center for Asian and Transcultural Studies (CATS) are presenting a selection of their stocks on the relations and entanglements in Asia and Germany during world wars in the Heinrich Zimmer Reading Room of the Library of the South Asia Institute and the Institute of Japanese Studies (Akademiestr. 4-8, 2nd floor).
The exhibition offers insights into documents on relations between Germany and East Asia from 1931 to 1945, India during the two world wars, and a portrait of Dietrich Seckel, the Heidelberg founder of East Asian art history in the German-speaking world.
