The Wiener Library

For the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide

Our Partners

The Wiener Library works closely with organisations around the world to ensure our collections are widely accessible and to deliver high-quality programming and events.

Our core strategic partners are:

The Centre for Holocaust Education at the Institute of Education, University of London

is leading world-class research on Holocaust education, delivering free professional development for teachers across England, and providing high-quality and effective teaching and learning resources.  We are pleased to be able to share resources and expertise with the Centre, as well as collaborate on our Knowledge Exchange forum.

The Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism

is based at Birkbeck, University of London and was established by the Pears Foundation.  It is a centre of innovative research and teaching on antisemitism and racial intolerance.  The Pears Institute is situated next-door to the Library, and we work closely on events programming and research projects.

The Jewish Museum, Berlin

The Wiener Library has a branch in The Jewish Museum, Berlin which holds microfilm copies of a selection of the Library's unique collection on the Holocaust and Nazi era.  12,000 of the Libraries most important books and pamphlets, mainly from the 1930s and 1940s, along with approximately 10% of its rare documents, are available in the Reading Room at the Jewish Museum, Berlin.  The material available in Berlin is marked in our catalogue.

European Holocaust Research Infrastructure

The Wiener Library is pleased to represent the UK as a partner organisation of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI), a project financed by the European Union.  EHRI aims to support the European Holocaust research community by opening up a portal that will give online access to dispersed sources relating to the Holocaust all over Europe and Israel, and by encouraging collaborative research through the development of tools.  For further information on the project and a full list of partners, please visit the EHRI website.
