Date: Friday 10 November 2023
Time: 10:00am-3.00pm
Venue: Wiener Holocaust Library, 29 Russell Sq, London WC1B 5DP


The Wiener Holocaust Library is looking for people to bring their stories and artefacts relating to the Second World War, the Nazi era and/or the Holocaust to a ‘Digital Collection Day’ on Friday 10 November (10am–3pm).

As these stories are fast fading from living memory, it is vital that they, and the mementos that often accompany them, are preserved for future generations.

At the Digital Collection Day, stories about your family’s experiences – and associated objects such as diaries, letters, photos, medals, and journals– will be recorded, digitised, and then uploaded to the Their Finest Hour online archive, which will be free-to-use from June 2024.

Organisers are especially interested in collecting contributions from people whose families lived through the Nazi era in Europe, 1933-45.

Attendance is free - just turn up on the day!

Please do not bring any weapons or potentially dangerous objects (including gas masks) to the Digital Collection Day.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Matthew Kidd (
