The Historical Association of Deutsche Bank was founded on June 12, 1991 as a non-profit organization. The Historical Association has around 1,900 members. Its main objective is to draw attention to the history of banking - especially of Deutsche Bank - and describe the political, economic and cultural environment in which banks operate.
