This is a series of in-person events taking place at Glamorgan Archives, Cardiff, in May 2024.

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 events programme includes the chance to view our pop-up exhibition, Fate Unknown: The Search for the Missing after the Holocaust, as well as the opportunity to learn more about the archive.

We welcome historians, archivists, family historians, heritage practitioners, and anyone interested in Jewish and Holocaust history and its aftermath.

They will be joined by Dr Tetyana Pavlush, Lecturer in Modern European History at Cardiff University, where they will discuss the development of the exhibition and reflect on some of the issues and themes it highlights. Dr Emily Smith and Neil Richardson from the Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre will also speak.

The Curator Talk will be followed by a drinks reception, providing an opportunity to view the Fate Unknown travelling exhibition and meet the co- curators of the exhibition.
