Library & Testimony Archive

On the first floor of the Documentation Centre, we invite you to visit the scientific library and the archive with documents, escape reports and interviews with contemporary witnesses. Here you can delve deeper into the topics of displacement and expulsion and forced migrations in Europe in the 20th century and beyond.

At media stations you can research our holdings and the most important external databases on family research or watch interviews with contemporary witnesses.

All materials are available to the interested public and researchers for use in our reading room.
