80th Anniversary Of The Wiener Library For The Study Of Holocaust And Contemporary Genocide

EDM number 669 in 2013-14, proposed by Louise Ellman on 05/11/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Cultural heritage, Ethnic groups, Libraries, Racial discrimination and Religious discrimination.

That this House congratulates The Wiener Library as it celebrates its 80th anniversary; notes that the Library was founded in 1933 by Dr Alfred Wiener who spent years warning German politicians, industrialists and ordinary citizens of what a Nazi takeover would mean; recognises that on the eve of World War II, Dr Wiener brought his library to the UK and placed it at the disposal of Britain's war effort, contributing significantly to the success of the Nuremberg Trials and later the prosecution of Adolf Eichmann; further notes that today, The Wiener Library's unparalleled collection defines it as a key player in Holocaust research, commemoration and education; and expresses its commitment to ensuring that The Wiener Library will continue to be indispensable to those touched by the Holocaust, to those studying its causes and consequences and to anyone committed to strengthening democratic values as a bulwark against anti-Semitism, racism and religious intolerance.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
