Holocaust Letters

This exhibition examines Holocaust-era correspondence for evidence of how Jewish persecutees understood what was happening to them as events of the Holocaust unfolded.

The Kerr Family in Flight

Judith Kerr is well known for her popular children’s books including The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat. She was born in Berlin in 1923 to a Jewish family. Her father, Alfred Kerr, was a prominent theatre critic, poet and broadcaster who was openly critical of the Nazis. Her mother, Julia Kerr, was a composer. This exhibition was curated to mark the centenary of Judith Kerr’s birth.

Fighting Antisemitism from Dreyfus to Today

The arrest, trial and imprisonment of Jewish French Army officer Alfred Dreyfus on false charges of espionage became a sensation in the 1890s in France and across Europe, galvanising both antisemites and their opponents. This exhibition draws upon the archives of The Wiener Holocaust Library to explore some of the individuals, organisations and campaigns that have fought back against antisemitism in France, Britain and Germany since this critical moment.

Dr Wiener’s Library

This new online exhibition traces the history of The Wiener Holocaust Library and its collections in the context of the dramatic and devastating historical events that shaped them.

The Kitchener Camp

The Kitchener Camp has been largely forgotten today, but in 1939 this derelict army base on the Kent coast became the scene of an extraordinary rescue which saved 4,000 men from the Holocaust.

Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust

This online exhibition examines the resistance efforts undertaken by Jews during the Holocaust, from armed uprisings, to rescue missions and the maintenance of covert religious practices.
