First cover of Die Sammlung. September 1933.

Die Sammlung (German for "The Collection") was a monthly literary magazine, first published in September 1933 in Amsterdam, and primarily affiliated with a number of influential German writers who fled from the Hitler regime during the first years of the establishment and consolidation of Nazi rule.

The magazine was primarily organized by writer Klaus Mann and Dutch publisher Querido Verlag's Emanuel Querido and Fritz Landshoff. Mann served as editor from 1933 to 1935; Die Sammlung's activity ceased with his departure in August 1935, and Mann left Europe for the United States.

Although published in the German language, Die Sammlung was intended to be an international literary magazine. Besides featuring notable writers from the international community of German exiles around the world, it included the work of non-German writers, such as the English novelist Aldous Huxley and French writer Jean Cocteau.
