Italian Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide

La Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide, (Biblioteca di Wiener per gli Studi dell'Olocausto e del Genocidio), è la più vecchia istituzione dedicata allo studio dell'Olocausto e delle sue cause. Si trova a Londra in Russell Square.

Fondata nel 1933 appositamente per le comunità e i governi ebraici di tutto il mondo, come ufficio di informazioni e aggiornamento sulla persecuzione degli ebrei sotto i regimi nazisti e nazionalsocialisti. Fu in seguito trasformata in un istituto di ricerca, con annessa biblioteca pubblica, alla fine della seconda guerra mondiale.

Nel 2017 e stata pubblicata una versione online dell'archivio della Commissione ONU sui crimini di guerra riguardanti l'Olocausto. L'istituzione è diretta dallo scrittore e storico britannico Ben Barkow.
