Symposium: New Directions in the Study of the Roma Genocide

This two-day, in-person symposium, organised by The Wiener Holocaust Library and the University of Cambridge, will be held at the Library 10- 11 May 2023. It will bring together early career researchers and senior academics to discuss new directions in the study of the Roma genocide.

Holocaust Letters: “A gift, a privilege and a huge task”

On 23 February we welcomed special guests to the Library for the launch of our latest exhibition, Holocaust Letters. Our speakers for the evening included the Director of the Library Dr Toby Simpson, our Director of Research Dr Christine Schmidt, and those who have generously donated their own family’s Holocaust-era letters and curated a panel of the exhibition.

A year after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Wiener Holocaust Library appeals for support in resisting the weaponisation of history 

One year ago, Russia invaded Ukraine, an independent and sovereign nation, justifying their aggression with spurious claims that they were “denazifying” the country. The Wiener Holocaust Library issued a statement at that time refuting the claims and condemning the abuse of the memory the Holocaust and the Nazi era as a weapon of war. 

Our statement regarding high-profile antisemitism and Holocaust denial

The Wiener Holocaust Library has always stood firmly against Holocaust denial and distortion. We are the world’s oldest archive dedicated to the open study of the overwhelming documentary record of the Holocaust and we work hard to use our vast and unique collections to put the past at the service of the future.
