Virtual Student and Teacher Talk: Refugees from Nazism in Britain

Around 80,000 Jewish refugees arrived to the UK between 1933 and 1945. Aimed at GCSE and A-Level students, this talk will utilise sources from the Library’s unique archive to trace some of the journeys made by these 80,000 refugees, focusing on ‘ordinary’ people. It will also explore British responses to these refugees, including governmental actions and the activities of community and voluntary organisations.

Virtual Student and Teacher Talk: Forgotten Victims: The Nazi Genocide of the Roma and Sinti

This workshop marks 81 years since that decree and yet little is known about the genocide carried out against the Roma and Sinti communities of Europe by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Second World War.  Referred to as ‘the forgotten Holocaust’ by Professor Eve Rosenhaft, this workshop draws upon The Wiener Holocaust Library’s collections of material on the genocide to uncover the story of this understudied aspect of Nazi persecution.

Virtual Teacher Talk: The Oppression of the Black Community in Nazi-Occupied Europe

Black people experienced persecution and discrimination before, during and after the Third Reich in Germany and elsewhere. This workshop will utilise the Library’s collections to crucially explore how the persecution of the black community by the Nazi regime was not straightforward and followed a different timeline to the persecution of other groups.
