Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London

1,260 reviews
Immerse yourself in Victorian London on this one-of-a-kind Jack the Ripper experience featuring RIPPER-VISION.™ Unlike other tours, your guide uses handheld projectors to accompany spine-chilling tales of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1800s. As you explore the dimly lit back streets of Whitechapel, images of Victorian London are projected onto buildings to guarantee a highly atmospheric experience. Plus, an evening departure time means you’ll experience London at its most mysterious.

We went having seen a poster in the Russell Square tube station. The exhibition was small but gave so much compelling information with heart wrenching stories. Information is rare on how groups such as the Roma and Sinti were murdered and tortured by the Nazis. We will look out for other exhibitions on our future visits to London. The Library needs to promote itself more positively as I don’t think many people know of its existence which is a great pity.

Friendly staff and an amazingly warm welcome. A peaceful reading room, well resourced with archive materials available by request. Whether for an insight into how resources about the Holocaust and genocides are curated, or personal research, this library is well worth visiting.

The Wiener Library is the legacy of German Jew Alfred Wiener who started cataloguing and recording Nazi anti-Semitism in the 1920s, an activity which led him and his family to flee Germany for Amsterdam in 1933 and to England in 1938. These premises in Russell Square are its third site in London. For Heritage Open Days I joined a tour which included the ground floor exhibition space, the basement archives where we were shown photographs and family albums of the victims of Nazi oppression, then unto the splendid first floor library.

We took 18 college students to the Wiener Library. They found the information presented to be highly interesting and we had good discussions in class on the following day.

Its one room with wallcharts on the ground floor and a reading room upstairs. Very nice people but unless you have a specific interest maybe dont take up their time or yours. As an aside its interesting how the russian and japanese atrocities in ww2 are fading in memories but the holocaust is as prevalent as ever.
