Founded in 1933, the Library is Britain’s largest and most important collection of material relating to the Holocaust and genocide.

We are pleased to announce that our public archive tours have resumed. You can now visit the world’s Holocaust archives for an in-depth view of our historic collections and to see first-hand how we collect and preserve valuable material for future generations.

From Tuesday 5 April 2022, you will be able to join a tour of the Library with our well-informed volunteer tour guides to learn about our history and our work going forward.

The tours run every Tuesday 2-3pm and last approximately one hour, encompassing the Library’s main archive space where you’ll have the opportunity to view fascinating and rare historical documents from the Holocaust whilst also being able to take a look around the Wolfson Reading Room.

If you would like more information, pre-book a place on one of our free Tuesday tours, or to register for a private tour please email the Library’s Visitor Services, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, Aaron Brohi, [email protected].
