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.
Building an education programme for the Library
Our dedicated Education Officer describes how the Library’s education programme has evolved over the last decade.
We are an independent charity dependent on your support…
In order to continue our vital work, and be able to celebrate further milestones, we need to raise over a quarter of a million pounds each year. This is only possible with your help. With your support we can continue to be a world leading Holocaust archive, offer a vital learning resource to oppose anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice and preserve our archive for future generations so they can learn the lessons of the past.
