In Israel, too, research institutions have been established in addition to places of remembrance: Holocaust survivors, including fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, founded the Ghetto Fighters’ House in 1949. Since then, it documents Jewish life in Europe before the Holocaust and anti-Semitic persecution. The Jewish resistance in the ghettos and camps continues to be a focal point. The Yad Vashem State Memorial, founded in 1953 in Jerusalem, prioritizes the narratives of individuals and their fates. Today, its archive is the most extensive collection of sources on the Holocaust. In 1993, Yad Vashem founded the International School for Holocaust Studies. It has a pedagogical department that develops teaching materials and offers training for teachers from all over the world.
In 1933, Alfred Wiener und David Cohen founded the Wiener Library, initially named the Jewish Central Information Office in Amsterdam. It gathered information about the persecution of Jews in Germany. In 1939, the collections were moved to London. After the end of the war, the Wiener Library was turned into a research institution and a public library. Its collection of documents formed an essential basis for the indictments at the Nuremberg trials. Today, the collection holds more than 1 million articles, newspaper clippings, photographs and testimonies of those affected.
