This paper provides an overview of the Konrad Zuse Internet Archive project which has been conducted from 2010 until 2013 at Freie Universität Berlin in cooperation with Deutsches Museum in Munich. The project has been mainly concerned with digitising and publication of previously unreleased private papers of Konrad Zuse. We want to make the history of computing relevant to the general public and the archive has been extended by creating a panorama, simulations, films and an introductory encyclopaedia.
