The Thomas Mann Archives have released around 2,000 images. The main subjects include portraits of Thomas Mann and members of the Mann-Pringsheim family, family scenes and holidays, e.g. in Nidden. Moreover, public appearances such as lecture tours to Eastern Europe or New York and also the period of exile in Switzerland and in the USA are documented. The photographs span a period from the mid-19th century to the 1950s. Some of them were previously unpublished, such as shots of the siblings and the (female) relatives of Katia Mann or photograph albums.
