Reopening on 8 February


From 8 February 2021, the VWI's archive and library are accessible again. Registration via telephone or e-mail is required since the reading room allows only one person at the same time.

The museum can be accessed by a maximum of two people at the same time. In all cases a FFP2-mask is mandatory and also the minimum distance of two metres has to be guaranteed.

The institute can be reached by telephone from Monday to Friday 10:00-16:00: +43-1-890-15-14



The two cornerstones of the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) in the area of documentation are its publicly accessible archive and its publicly accessible library. The location at the Rabensteig allowed for various partly extant, partly new archival and library holdings on antisemitism, racism, nationalism and the Holocaust, including its origins and aftermath, to be collected in one place with unitary conditions of storage, access, and use. The discovery and preparation of archival materials as well as the acquisition of literature are conducted in accordance with the running research and education projects and with the research activities of the fellows at the institute.
