WikiLeaks controversy

Of course the talk of the day is the way WikiLeaks is being censored on the web. (The link is to a Dutch mirror, the original is currently blocked) Even the Library of Congress has now banned both employees and patrons from accessing WikiLeaks from within the LoC network.

Europeana does not have the explosive type of material that WikiLeaks has. But we do have a large collection of diplomatic correspondence from Switzerland, the Dodis collection. Similar in type to the diplomatic cables WikiLeaks published, but not necessarily in content or sensitivity. And of course these are mostly 40+ years old.

Some examples:
Convention concernant les droits et les devoirs des Puissances et des personnes neutres en cas de guerre sur terre (convention de la Haye).

107. Japanisches Staatseigentum in der Schweiz

Rétablissement du Poste Assistant du Conseiller scientifique
