The Wiener Library

For the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide

Donate Family Papers

The Library continues to actively build and develop its collections and we are currently acquiring material at one of the fastest rates in our history.

We welcome donations of any original material that documents the Holocaust and Nazi era.  Such material might include correspondence, diaries, photographs, identity and emigration papers, compensation claim papers or ephemera (contemporary leaflets, programmes, publications).  We collect material relating to individuals, organisations, political groups and companies.

We can also provide help and guidance on how best to store and care for your own documents, even if you are not yet ready to donate them to the Library.

In addition, we are always grateful for donations of relevant books and other published works.

If you would like to speak to the Library about documents you wish to donate, please contact our Archivist, Howard Falksohn at
