The 2010s

In 2011 the Library moved from its headquarters in Devonshire Street to its current home at 29 Russell Square. This brought with it the opportunity to develop a programme of outreach, education and exhibitions that continue to grow to this day. Our building now includes an underground archive, permanent exhibition space and purpose-designed Reading Room.

The 2010s also saw the Library become the UK copyholder of the International Tracing Service archive, a remarkable cache of over 30 million pages of Holocaust-era documents. Our ITS Research Team undertake often complex enquiries from researchers and family members, tracing what happened to individuals during, and in the aftermath of, the genocide.
