Visit to the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide [Event Ref. No. TG2/WIE]
Twitter – #cpd25WIETRIP
The Wiener Library was founded in December 1933, in direct response to the Nazis coming to power in Germany. Working from Amsterdam, its remit was to collect and disseminate accurate information about Nazi policies and their cumulative persecution of Jews, anti-fascists and others deemed undesirable. Today the Library has a unique collection of material from the time detailing the curtailing of human rights under the Nazis, including significant holdings of rare ephemera. This tour will give an overview of these holdings, as well as archival and photographic collections.
29 Russell Square, London WC1B 5DP
