Our vision is of a continuously developing library, archive and information service for the UK and for the international community, dedicated to supporting research, learning, teaching and advocacy about the Holocaust and genocide, their causes and consequences.
The Library provides a resource to oppose antisemitism and other forms of prejudice and intolerance. Its reputation rests on its independence and the scholarly objectivity of its activities and publications.
Our mission is:
- To serve scholars, professional researchers, the media and the public as a library of record.
- To be a living memorial to the evils of the past by ensuring that our wealth of materials is put at the service of the future.
- To engage people of all ages and backgrounds in understanding the Holocaust and its historical context through an active educational programme.
