We build memorials to remember and to honor. We grapple with evidence (the historian's primary sources) in an effort to know what happened in the past. We further struggle to understand what happened in the past. To study the Holocaust is to despair and to marvel at humanity. Perhaps more than any other event in living memory, the Holocaust demands this of us.
The library owns several thousand books and ebooks which address the Holocaust to one degree or another. The links below jump into the library catalog, where you can start browsing through the collection. Pay particular attention to call numbers, because you may discover that certain topics cluster together while others may scatter somewhat based on geography. The links are based on subject terminology devised by the Library of Congress, and most academic libraries in the United States draw from the same nomenclature.
Access to ebooks will require you to login via your Criss Library account. If you have not created a library account, you may click here for instructions.
