The Wiener Library

Our vision is of a continuously developing library, archive and information service for the UK and for the international community, dedicated to supporting research, learning, teaching and advocacy about the Holocaust and genocide, their causes and consequences.

The Library provides a resource to oppose antisemitism and other forms of prejudice and intolerance. Its reputation rests on its independence and the scholarly objectivity of its activities and publications.

Association of Jewish Refugees

http://www.ajr.org.uk/search?q=Kitchener+camp

The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) provides social, welfare and care services to Jewish victims of Nazi oppression living in Great Britain.

Founded in 1941 by Jewish refugees from central Europe, the AJR has extensive experience attending to the needs of Holocaust refugees and survivors who settled in Britain.

About 70,000 refugees – including approximately 10,000 children on the Kindertransport – arrived in Great Britain from Nazi-occupied Europe in the late 1930s. They were joined at the end of the Second World War by survivors of the ghettos and concentration camps.

Membership of the AJR is extended to all Jewish victims of Nazi oppression and their spouses and we also welcome as members the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and refugees, the Second and Third Generations.

Would you be here without World Jewish Relief?

World Jewish Relief – formerly the Central British Fund (CBF) – rescued 65,000 people from Europe in the 1930s and 40s, including 10,000 through the Kindertransport.

Our archives, containing the records of 35,000 people, have now been digitised with the support of the Association of Jewish Refugees, Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe, the Otto Schiff Housing Association and World Jewish Relief. These files are a set of individual stories – including birth certificates, immigration papers, school records, etc – of people brought to the UK by World Jewish Relief.

Royal Pioneer Corps Association

http://www.royalpioneercorps.co.uk/rpc/index.htm

It is now over twenty years since our Corps converged with the other Forming Corps’ to form the Royal Logistic Corps, it is pleasing therefore to report that the Association is standing the test of time and still going strong. So far this year we have recruited hundreds of new members, some who served during World War 2, many from the National Service days of the Fifties and a great number from the Sixties and Seventies who for one reason or another failed to join when they were serving.
