In 2017, the Deutsche Bundesbank commissioned a comprehensive study on the history of central banking in Germany between the years 1924 and 1970. A team of academics led by renowned historians Professor Magnus Brechtken and Professor Albrecht Ritschl examined the Reichsbank’s history as the central bank during the National Socialist era. Their Research also focused on continuities in terms of Reichsbank personnel after the central banks Bank deutscher Länder and Deutsche Bundesbank were established in the years after the war.
