The Wiener Library Bulletin

With the first issue of the The Wiener Library Bulletin, published in November 1946, the Wiener Library launched itself as a research institute open to the wider public. Until 1966, C.C. Aronsfeld edited the Bulletin, followed by Ernest Hearst and Robert Wistrich. The serial covered a wide array of topics, from the war crime trials and the reconstruction of Germany to the resurgence of extreme groups, as well as racism in Europe and the development of Holocaust historiography. It was reorganised in 1965 and the so-called New Series contained much longer articles.
