A is for Adolf: Teaching German Children Nazi Values

1 December 2012 - 6 March 2012

A is for Adolf opened at The Wiener Library in December 2011, displaying the Library's unique collection of children's books, games and toys for the very first time. The origins of this remarkable collection lie in the efforts of the Jewish Central Information Office to document the Nazi regime's antisemitic propaganda. Since then, the collection has been considerably expanded and enriched with the generous support of Ernest Hecht Charitable Foundation.
