The History and Collections of the Wiener Holocaust Library

Free event at Stanmore Library  Tuesday 24 January 2023  12:00 - 13:00

The Wiener Holocaust Library is one of the world’s leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust, the Nazi era and genocide.

In this talk at Stanmore Library, presented by Aaron Brohi, we’ll be exploring the history of the library and the story of how this archival collection came to be based in London. We’ll also be taking a look at The Wiener Holocaust Library's International Tracing Service Digital Archive, which contains around 30 million pages of Holocaust era documents relating to the experiences of 17.5 million people.

The story of Holocaust Survivor Eva Cato

Free online event  Friday 27 January 2023  10:00 - 11:00

To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2023, Harrow Libraries online hosts the moving testimony of Holocaust survivor Eva Cato in a special presentation from Eva’s daughter Vivienne Cato for the charity Generation 2 Generation.

Generation 2 Generation’s Holocaust survivor stories reflect a wide variety of personal experiences of the Holocaust across Nazi-occupied Europe and provide a valuable insight into the lives of many who suffered from racism and discrimination. These true stories of Holocaust survivors and their families are presented by descendants and family friends.

Generation 2 Generation aims to ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust are learned: the need for tolerance, empathy and understanding of all groups in society; the fact that prejudice and discrimination can motivate genocide.
