“The Online Wiener Archive”, the digitization project of Wiener library in Tel Aviv University, gives access to thousands of documents kept in the library’s archive.
This documentation was collected by Dr. Alfred Wiener and his team before, during and after the war and the Holocaust.
The collection, named “The 500 Document Collection”, includes:
- official correspondences of the Nazi authorities in the 1930s and 1940s
- official records from concentration camps; official records of Jewish agencies and societies before and during the war
- personal letters which shed light on the state of the Jews in occupied Europe and more
The project, supported by the Claims Conference, began about a year ago with the objective of digitizing the microfilm documentation in the library (with the kind help of “Yad Vashem”). The documents are now being labeled and catalogued, and will be gradually uploaded to the library’s catalogue.
Each cataloguing includes the name of the author, the title, the location and the subjects of the text, as well as an English summary and a link to the original. The cataloguing is integrated with the DaTA system of the University’s libraries, so the documents can be searched and viewed from any computer, inside and outside the campus.
