The Wiener Library in partnership with the Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies

The Wiener Library

The Wiener Library is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. Formed in 1933, the Library's unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony.


The Library provides a resource to oppose antisemitism and other forms of prejudice and intolerance. Its reputation rests on its independence and the scholarly objectivity of its activities and publications.

 

 Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies

The Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies (IPJS) was established more than 30 years ago, in 1984, as a non-profit educational institution devoted to the history and culture of Polish Jewry. It is best known for its annual yearbook “Polin. Studies in Polish Jewry”, publishing original research by leading scholars in the fields of history, literary criticism, history of the Holocaust, and the history of Jewish-non-Jewish relations. The IPJS also hosts significant public events throughout the year, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, the Polish Cultural Institute, London, and the Embassy of Lithuania, and the UCL Institute of Jewish Studies and Department for Hebrew and Jewish Studies. These events focus on the rich and variegated history and culture of eastern European Jewish communities, as well as the Holocaust. Members of the Institute engage actively with our East European colleagues, not just in academic research and education, but also in collaborations to foster the development of civic society in Post-Soviet communities. Our members are frequent public speakers on the history and culture of Polish and eastern European Jewry, as well as on the history of the Holocaust.
