Simon Wiesenthal’s activities were always funded exclusively from donations; he considered this the only way of ensuring the autonomy and independence he needed in his quest for justice. In his last years, he directed his staff to begin putting the existing records into a good archive order, describing the content of the files, and storing this information in a database with a view toward facilitating access to the materials. Since this work, too, needs to be financed and many of the main sponsors of Simon Wiesenthal’s work discontinued their support after his death, we are now soliciting much needed financial assistance to enable us to continue with our work of safeguarding his legacy.

Contributions – in all and any amounts – are always welcome and will be greatly appreciated. Your donations may be made by means of a check made out to the “Documentation Center” or by direct bank transfer to our bank account at
