This in-person event is taking place at Holocaust Centre North in Huddersfield on 23 November 2022.
The Wiener Holocaust Library is home to the UK’s International Tracing Service digital archive, which holds millions of documents related to the Holocaust and Nazi era. The archive preserves the shared past of victims and survivors of the Holocaust and helps support family research of Nazi persecution.
Our free one-day event offers the chance to view our temporary exhibition ‘Fate Unknown: The Search for the Missing after the Holocaust’, as well as the opportunity to hear from its curators and ITS Digital Archive researchers to learn more about this remarkable collection and how it can be used to help in family research and academic work.
We welcome historians, archivists, family historians, heritage practitioners, and anyone interested in Jewish and Holocaust history and its aftermath.
