The documentation of the SOS Children's Villages' history describes the founding and development of the largest private children's charity fund in the world in a comprehensive project. From the very beginnings to present-day activities - collecting and sorting tidbits and snippets of information is a thrilling task, especially in a living, growing non-profit organisation.

Dr. Zeindl, historian and art historian of the Archive of the City of Innsbruck has been entrusted with a projet-related contract to build up a professional documentations department at SOS Children's Villages.

„What is important to me“

I like people, music and Venice.
I like the fact that in Chinese, "crisis" and "opportunity" are written the same way!
