We are seeking an experienced Archivist to join the Library on a six-month contract, starting beginning of April onwards (subject to Covid-19 regulations), to support the ongoing cataloguing of the Library’s uncatalogued collections of German Jewish refugee family papers.
The Library’s uncatalogued Jewish refugee family papers are an exceptionally rich collection of personal documents. The collection is particularly strong in terms of the breadth and depth of materials and includes a variety of historically significant photographs. The extensive private correspondence in this collection provides a rich evidence to researchers for a variety of experiences of Nazi persecution among multiple branches of many families. For an experienced archivist with an interest in modern history, this is an opportunity to help develop one of Britain’s foremost archives of document collections relating to the Holocaust.
As we are a small organisation, we are looking for a good team player. The post-holder should be willing to travel to the Library daily.
