The Wiener Library
The Wiener Library is the world's oldest Holocaust memorial institution, tracing its history back to 1933, the year in which Alfred Wiener, a German Jew who worked in the Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith, fled Germany for Amsterdam and, together with Prof. David Cohen, set up the Jewish Central Information Office, collecting and disseminating information about events happening in Nazi Germany.
Today the Library, which has been located in london since 1939, continues from strength to strength, acquiring major collections, holding regular lectures and events, providing a focal point for researchers and students both young and old.
The Association of Jewish Refugees

welfare and financial support services to victims of Nazi persecution living in Great Britain.

Our volunteers department arranges for regular visits from a befriender and the Central Office for Holocaust Claims provides advice and assistance with claims for Holocaust era restitution and compensation. AJR members also receive the monthly Journal and benefit from the Centre in West Hampstead, London which serves hot lunches and offers a wide range of entertainment and activities.
