»Marienthal. The Sociography of an Unemployed Community« (Leipzig, 1933) has become a classical book of empirical social research long ago. The success of this study effected, that the name »Marienthal« is well known among social scientists all over the world. But probably no one knows anything else about this factory and workers' settlement than what is reported in the famous book. »Marienthal« has become a scientific myth, a myth among scholars.

This website offers basic and background information on Marienthal before as well as after the famous study of 1933. Texts, pictures, and documents give a glimpse into the history of Marienthal, into the village and its people, from its beginning until now. Moreover, the website intends to inform about the Marienthal study and its project team.

This website, created on occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Archives for the History of Sociology in Austria, offers documents free of charge to students, teachers, researchers, and all people interested in Marienthal. For further information use the book »Marienthal. Das Dorf – Die Arbeitslosen – Die Studie« of Reinhard Müller as well as his illustrated book »Mythos Marienthal. Blicke auf die Fabrik, die Arbeiterkultur und die Arbeitslosen«.

The English version of this website is under construction. At the moment only the section »Pictures« as well as parts of the sections »Chronicle«, »The Study«, and »The Project Team« are on your disposal in English.
