The Wiener Library

The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. The Library's unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony. It provides a resource to oppose antisemitism and other forms of prejudice and racism.

The Wiener Library has been collecting material related to the Holocaust, its causes and legacies since 1933. Our holdings contain approximately 65,000 books and pamphlets, 2,000 document collections, over 17,000 photographs, and over 3,000 titles of periodicals, as well as audio-visual testimonies, press cuttings, posters and some objects.

The Wiener Library has an active Learning and Outreach programme for the public, for schools, for students and for scholars. The work of our Learning team is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
