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

Research Projects at the VWI


The founding concept for the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) from the outset envisaged the execution of research projects through third-party funding. This was to ensure that short, mid, and long-term research was conducted independently of the academic work rhythms of the institute. Individually initiated and designed projects, for which funding is sought from national, international, and European funding bodies, play just as much of a central role in this respect as do collaborative research projects that have been conceptualised and brought to the VWI by external project organisers.


Research projects are conducted by a variable number of different staff members who are either employed by the institute or work on the basis of a services contract. Since the establishment of the institute, numerous third-party funded projects have been concluded and several more are currently based at the institute.


The institute constantly endeavours to submit new applications and thereby to explore further research fields and acquire new staff members.
