The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide in London is one of the world’s leading and most extensive archives on modern Jewish history, with special emphasis on the Holocaust, Nazism, Fascism, and anti-Semitism. Founded by Alfred Wiener in 1933 to document the growing threat of Germany’s National Socialist Party, the Library contains some of the earliest primary sources on Nazism. The Library’s unique collection includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony.

The Leo Baeck Institute New York offers the core of this rare collection to its readers on microfilm. The collection can be accessed on-site in the reading room at the Center for Jewish History.

The microfilm collection is composed of the following six series: Periodicals, Books and Pamphlets, Document Archives, Nuremberg Trials Archive, Biographical Archive, and Press Archives.

In addition, the Center for Jewish History offers on-site access to the digitized version of Wiener Library’s Eyewitness Accounts collection.
