A is for Adolf: Teaching German Children Nazi Values
The following is an online version of an exhibition on display at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris from 25 January 2016 to 28 February 2016. It concerns Nazi propaganda targeted at children and is based on an exhibition which was originally held at the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust, London, from 1 December 2011 to 6 March 2012. From the earliest stage of the development of the Nazi movement, the youth in Germany were seen as a crucial political target by leading Nazi propagandists. The original 2011 exhibition A is for Adolf showed the Library's unique collection of Nazi children's books, games and toys to the public for the very first time.
Dilemmas, Choices, Responses: Britain and the Holocaust
The following is an online version of the exhibition, Dilemmas, Choices, Responses: Britain and the Holocaust, which was displayed at the Wiener Library from 14th April 2016 23rd June 2016. Dilemmas, Choices, Responses: Britain and the Holocaust was co-curated with the Holocaust Educational Trust's Regional Ambassadors. The exhibition highlights documents, photographs and other resources from the Library's collections that challenge commonly held assumptions regarding British responses to the Holocaust, such as that the British government entered the war because of the persecution of European Jewry, and to save the Jews. An exploration of the British public's responses to the Holocaust occurs throughout the exhibition, as well as discussing antisemitism within British society; information about the Holocaust in the press, and the stance of the British Government regarding the unfolding violence against Jews in Europe. Visitor voice, thought and responses are embedded within the exhibition and can be predominantly noted at the end of this online version. Overall, this exhibition analyses, evaluates and considers whether Britain really did enough during the World War Two era.
