We are pleased to announce the uploading of the “Online Wiener Archive” – the digitization project of Wiener Library for the Study of the Nazi Era and the Holocaust at Tel Aviv University, Supported by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
The project provides the public with online access to thousands of documents kept in the library’s archive. This documentation, collected by Dr. Alfred Wiener and his team before, during and after the Second World War and the Holocaust, includes official correspondences of the Nazi authorities in the 1930s and 1940s; official records from concentration camps; official records of Jewish organizations; personal letters which shed light on the condition of the Jews in occupied Europe and more.
The material uploaded so far includes, for example, documents from Buchenwald concentration camp; witness accounts collected from Jews who came to Vilna from occupied Poland; information about the attempts of Jews to emigrate from Germany; about Jewish migration from Europe to the Far East; about rescue attempts and about antisemitism in Europe after the war.
The catalog is integrated with the DaTA system of the University’s libraries, so the documents can be searched, retrieved and viewed from any computer, inside and outside the campus.
