The Library is investing in the future of Holocaust remembrance, education, and research, by aiming to digitise a third of its unique archive, over five-years. With your help we can digitise our collections, allowing us to meet the increasingly digital needs of the 21st Century.
We hold an estimated two million items documenting the fates of victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. Our unique collections help ensure that accurate information about the Holocaust is freely accessible to the public. Online antisemitism and Holocaust denial have become more widespread in recent years, which has seen a rising demand on the Library. To address this, we must digitise our archive, making it more accessible worldwide, and ensure it is preserved for future generations.
The pandemic has emphasised the need for our digital transformation, and we cannot delay this vital project, which will revolutionise online access to our archive. This project will cost £665,000 and we have recently secured 40% of this. However, to make our digital vision a reality, we need your support to raise £30,000 to cover the digitisation costs. Your donation will allow us to digitise thousands of pages of unique material, such as eyewitness reports from Auschwitz concentration camp.
