Our volunteering programme is currently on hold as the Wiener Holocaust Library is operating under COVID-19 restrictions. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Tom Collins for further information or to be added to our volunteer waiting list.

The Wiener Holocaust Library has a strong tradition of working with volunteers.  Our volunteers are from all walks of life and they are vital to what we achieve as an organisation.

Volunteering Roles

We offer roles to suit all abilities and backgrounds, from collections and archival work to public-facing guides and volunteer bloggers. We welcome volunteers who are looking to learn new skills in heritage, those who are looking to bring their existing knowledge to the Library team and all who have an interest in understanding the history of the Holocaust.

As we appreciate that everybody who commits to volunteer has a different schedule, our volunteering work is designed to fit around how much time you are able to commit.

  • Regular Weekly Volunteering

    A number of our roles require volunteers to come in to the Library on a regular basis to work on specific projects.

    This type of commitment will suit people who are able to donate 1-2 days per working week where you will be working on a set collection or topic.

    Available roles

  • Casual Volunteering

    We have a number of opportunities for people who need to fit volunteering around their own schedules rather than commit to a more fixed pattern.

    Available roles

  • Volunteer From Home

    These roles are ideal for people who cannot come to the Library in person or prefer a more flexible working schedule.

    Available roles
