The German Foreign Ministry was responsible for the relations between Germany and foreign countries as well as between the German states. The files in this collection provide information on foreign relations between September 1912, and September 1919. The files consist mainly of correspondence between embassies and the government in Berlin. They include newspaper articles, telegrams, and notes from ambassadors, key figures, and private citizens involved in political events. The files on foreign countries focus on the relationship of Germany to Russia, Italy, Rumania, Austria, and the Ukraine, general and marine affairs in Russia, Russian statesmen, and the administration of occupied territories in Serbia during the war.
