The Concentration Camp Memorial has its own reference library containing literature on the history of National Socialism, the history of the concentration camps, and the culture of remembrance. A special feature of the memorial's library holdings is the collection of publications on the history of the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp.
The library is located in the museum building. Users have access to its holdings in the reading room. The library does not lend books.
To help you prepare for your visit, information about the library holdings is available online. You can search in our online catalogue or in the catalogue of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Gedenkstättenbibliotheken (Working Group of Memorial Libraries; AGGB):

The online collections of the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies can be viewed at the Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp Memorial starting immediately.
