The overwhelming majority of Jews who found refugee from the Nazis in the UK left behind family members who perished in the Holocaust. Several hundred of those former refugees have over the years deposited their personal and family papers here at the Wiener Library. These collections are unique evidence of some of Europe’s long since eradicated diaspora communities. Many of the collections contain content not just from the Nazi era but also from earlier periods, sometimes back to the 19th and even 18th centuries. The types of material include photographs; correspondence; birth, marriage, death, school, residency certificates; war records; records documenting the emancipation and discrimination of Jews; business records and more. Descriptions to these collections have for some time been searchable via the library’s online documents catalogue

Note also that the library is still actively collecting new material. If you have anything which you think meets our collecting remit you can contact the archivist: hfalksohn@wienerlibrary.co.uk

Disclaimer
We have made every effort to obtain the consent from donors to include material from their family collections in the map. For those we have missed and who object to their inclusion in this project we would remove  them immediately.

The overwhelming majority of Jews who found refugee from the Nazis in the UK left behind family members who perished in the Holocaust. Several hundred of those former refugees have over the years deposited their personal and family papers here at the Wiener Library. These collections are unique evidence of some of Europe’s long since eradicated diaspora communities. Descriptions to these collections have for some time been searchable via the library’s online documents catalogue. Now, samples from these collections can also be searched via this interactive digital map of Europe by clicking on any one of the pins on the map or by keyword in the search box. Note that a search ‘audio’ in this box yields a list of those collections containing audio content. Note also that on the menu bar you have the option to select the historical map of either Berlin or Vienna, home to relatively large numbers of former refugees. Links also exist to the full document description within the catalogue.
