  • Just visited this unbelievable library which has a free admission. There is a donation box/it is not required. I believe this place has the largest # of artifacts/documents, second only to Yad Vashem. It is an incredible, do not miss place. We must never forget. While I was visiting London the photographs of Gerty Simon were being exhibited here. Conveniently located.
  • This is a small but very informative museum/library. There is a great deal of information of the holocaust and the impact it had on people especially people coming to England. If you get chance it's worth your time
