Wall of Honour

In the Library’s former home, 4 Devonshire Street, supporters were able to commemorate a loved one by placing a brass plaque in the Library’s Reading Room. The presence of over 100 plaques reminded all visitors of the individuality of those touched by the Holocaust.

Thanks to a generous gift, these plaques have been refurbished and mounted in the Wolfson Reading Room of our new home in Russell Square, to perpetuate our commitment to honour these men and women.

In our new home we have created the Wall of Honour which offers a unique way of honouring a relative, friend or someone who has inspired them. Each plaque on the Wall of Honour carries the name of the person being honoured.

Digital Wall of Honour
