Event description

Description

Part of our On British Soil exhibition series

The Wiener Library, the worlds oldest archive of material on the Holocaust and the Nazi era, invites you to this two-part workshop to discover more about the historical sources, evidence and methods used in tracing the stories of those lost or persecuted during the Second World War and the Holocaust.

You will have the opportunity to learn about The Wiener Library’s unique history and collections, and hear from an expert about the Library’s International Tracing Service archive, its history and how it is used to uncover the fate of those caught up in the Holocaust. You will also hear from Dr George Hay, Principal Military Records Specialist at The National Archives, Kew, about the recently released Compensation Files of British victims of Nazi persecution. Many of these files contain first-hand accounts of persecution by Jewish and non-Jewish victims that might otherwise have been forgotten.

This workshop is suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as those with a general interest in the subject.
