The Gathering Storm: A Prequel to the creation of the Wiener Holocaust Library

To mark the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Library, we’re introducing a new series of articles, selected from the writings of Dr Alfred Wiener and his contemporaries, from the earliest days of his organisation.

This serialised edited set of articles selected from the monthly edition of the Centralverein Zeitung serves as an exceptionally rich contemporary primary source. The articles, meticulously edited and translated by our Senior Archivist Howard Falksohn, are presented in chronological order so the reader is encouraged to suspend the benefit of hindsight and to engage with their content as if they were experiencing the era as it unfolded.
