Capture of the website began in June 2017. This description is based on the June 2017 capture of the site.

"Who's Who In Central & East Europe 1933" was originally realized as a "Hypertext Opera" in co-production of the "Inventionen '91", the Berliner Artist Program of the DAAD, and the Wiener Fest Wochen. The world premiere took place on February 13, 1991 in Kino Babylon in Berlin. This website highlights the 765 people from the original book the opera is based on and uses hyperlinks to connect the individuals to related categories instead of a static aphabetical list.
