The Wiener Library is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. LGfL has been given unique access to the collection for this powerful resource.

The Wiener Library is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. Formed in 1933, the Library's unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony. One of the key principles of the collection is to present historical evidence and arguments from very varied points of view, allowing visitors to make up their own mind about what happened during the Holocaust and modern-day genocides, such as in Darfur.

LGfL has been given unique access to the collection for this powerful resource for Key Stages 2-5 PSHE, Citizenship, History and R.E. Videos of Library Director Ben Barkow talking us through artefacts on display and in the archives at the Wiener Library are divided into eleven themes:

  • About The Wiener Library
  • Why archive genocide?
  • Modern-day genocide
  • Darfur
  • Children
  • Powerful Artwork
  • Auschwitz Concentration Camp
  • Nazi propaganda
  • The Final Solution
  • The victim’s perspective
  • Fighting back

LGfL is very fortunate to have worked with prominent historian Dr Helen Fry on a number of projects, and all the videos in 'The Final Solution' section feature Helen on location at the lakeside villa in Berlin where the Wannsee Conference took place on 20 January 1942. She explains the background to 'The Final Solution' and the awful administrative efficiency of the Nazi regime.

The videos from the resource are equally valuable as starters, plenaries and main lesson stimuli; each can stimulate discussion at the same time as deepening understanding of the issues, themes and historical facts surrounding the awful events of the Holocaust and other genocides.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
