ABOUT THE MEMORIAL LIBRARY

The Memorial Library and Art Collection of Second World War was founded by Auschwitz survivor Olga Lengyel as a repository for World War II memorabilia. But what began as an archival collection has also grown into an educational program with participants from across the United States. This program, the Holocaust Educators Network, works with teachers to design curriculum and classroom projects that will help students bring the lessons of the Holocaust into the present moment.

The Library, located at 58 East 79th Street in New York City, invites those who fought and the families who suffered during World War II to donate their print memorabilia so that the artifacts and materials of that time can be made available to visitors to the Library and to the hundreds of teachers and students who participate in our programs.
