United Kingdom's Wiener Holocaust Library Refugee Map #holocaust #photographs #records #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen



The Wiener Holocaust Library in the United Kingdom, is the oldest Holocaust archive in the world, and is one of the world’s leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust, the Nazi era and genocide. From its archival collection of Family Papers it has created a map which traces a refugee family or family member’s journey with individual records related to a specific location and period within their travels. Each record includes material such as letters, emigration documents, memoirs, photo albums, newspaper clippings, and interviews.


You can search the map by key terms, highlighted records and curated themes.


To search the map go to: https://www.refugeemap.org/map

















When you click on a number, the list of refugees for that area opens and then you chose which refugee and click on that name to find the records the Wiener Holcoaust Library has.
