Der Atlas der deutschen Volkskunde (The Atlas of German Folklore) is one of the biggest long-term cultural research projects of 20th-century Germany. Initiated after WW I and active under the political systems of the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the FRG and the GDR, several generations of anthropologists worked on the survey and cartographic mapping of a "folk culture" endangered by industrialization and modernization. Millions of data were collected within and outside the German Reich that pertain to everyday life, farm work, customs and conventions, feasts, holidays and rituals, diet, religious beliefs, and more.
