The Wiener Holocaust Library has a collection of 40,000 images of the Holocaust and related subjects originating from private and institutional collections. They form a valuable resource for historians, researchers and educators and are regularly used by the media, publishers and film producers.

In order to preserve our original prints and allow for greater access to our photo collection, we are in the process of digitising our photographs. As a result only a small selection of our images are currently searchable in our online catalogue. If you wish to search the full collection please contact our Photo Archivist.
