Since our foundation in 1933, the Library has gathered Britain’s largest and most important collection of material relating to the Holocaust and genocide.

You can now join one of our volunteer tour guides to learn about the history of the Library. Visit our archives for an in-depth look at our collections and to see how we collect and preserve valuable material for future generations.

The tour will last approximately one hour and encompasses the Library’s main archive spaces and Wolfson Reading Room.

To ensure safe distancing in our archives, the Library will be closed to other visitors and readers on the day of the tours, and tour groups are limited to a maximum of 4 people. Entry to the building is dependent on wearing a face covering.

The tours will run every Monday and pre-booking is essential.
