THE WIENER HOLOCAUST LIBRARY

The Library houses over 60,000 books, 10,000 photographs and many thousands of items in the document collection. Its press archive contains over two million items and is the most extensive archive on national socialism in the world. It is devoted to increasing awareness of the need for racial and religious understanding, and to the importance of maintaining vigorous democratic traditions.

 

Although the Library concentrates on the twentieth century, it does also contain material relating to earlier times. Subjects within its aegis include far-right ideologies and movements such as Nazism and Fascism, matters relating to genocide and antisemitism and exile studies. It specialises in modern Jewish history, the rise and fall of Nazi Germany, and the continuing survival of Nazi and Fascist movements in the post-war world.
