Curatorís Talk: Shattered: Pogrom, November 1938

Part of The Wiener Library’s Shattered: Pogrom, November 1938 exhibition series.

In this talk, The Wiener Library’s curators explore the genesis and development of the Library’s latest exhibition Shattered: Pogrom, November 1938, which examines the origins, events and legacies of Kristallnacht. The talk will showcase the Library’s extensive collections relating to Kristallnacht, including over 350 eyewitness testimonies collected in the immediate days and weeks after the events of November 1938. These testimonies were collected under the direction of Alfred Wiener, founder of The Wiener Library and a campaigner against Nazism and fascism. Find out more about the personal histories, collections and themes that feature in the exhibition.

This event is being held in conjunction with the Bloomsbury Festival.
