Krause Papierwerke's Mission

Understanding History Through Reproduction

Krause Papierwerke offers reproductions of historical German paper items from the 30s and 40s of the XXth century. We understand the sensitive nature of this period and want to emphasize the responsible use of our reproductions.


Our products can serve several purposes:

  • Educational and Movie Props: Accurately reproduced documents can be valuable tools for educators and filmmakers. They can help create realistic settings and provide tangible representations of historical events.

  • Recreation of Lost Family Documentation: For people of European descend whose family was directly or indirectly impacted by the global struggle, reproductions of long lost documents can offer a way to reconnect with their heritage.

  • Enriching Public Education: We collaborate with non-profit reenactment organizations dedicated to accurate historical portrayal. These reproductions serve as educational tools, helping audiences visualize and understand complex historical periods. Krause Papierwerke products end up in public shows, small museums and even schools around the world to make education more appealing.

We believe that by providing accurate reproductions and supporting responsible use, we can contribute to a richer public understanding of history.


Disclaimer: Krause Papierwerke condemns the Nazi regime and its ideology in the strongest possible terms. We believe education is key to preventing similar atrocities in the future.

Important Note:

  • For recreating lost family documents, we highly recommend consulting with a professional genealogist to ensure the accuracy and legitimacy of the reproductions used.

  • When using our reproductions for educational purposes or movie props, it's crucial to provide clear historical context to avoid misinterpretation.
