The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum encyclopedia of camps and ghettos, 1933-1945. Vol. 1, Early camps, youth camps, and concentration camps and subcamps under the SS-Business Administration Main Office (WVHA)
Call Number: REF D 805.A2 U55 2009
This first volume covers three groups of camps: the early camps that the Nazis established in the first year of Hitler's rule, the major SS concentration camps with their constellations of subcamps, and the special camps for Polish and German children and adolescents. Overview essays provide context for each category, while each camp entry provides basic information about the site's purpose; the prisoners, guards, working and living conditions; and key events in the camp's history. Material from personal testimonies helps convey the character of the site, while source citations provide a path to additional information.

Encyclopedia of Holocaust literature
Call Number: REF PN 56.H55 E53 2002
The editors provide an engrossing look at 128 authors of Holocaust literature and their works--poems and plays to diaries and memoirs. The authors have intimate knowledge of the Nazi Holocaust: some of them perished in the camps, some survived, some lost family members. Vignettes of the authors and their work reveal the profound effect the Holocaust had on their lives and literary work. The alphabetical entries combine biographical information (especially as it pertains to their experience of the Holocaust) and in-depth analysis of their literary works. Entries list a selection of works by the author, sometimes citing further biographical readings about the author. Two bibliographies add additional weight: "Bibliography of Critical Studies of Holocaust Literature" cites supplementary sources, and "Bibliography of Primary Holocaust Literature" provides a primer of sources for novices and scholars. An excellent source for those interested in literature about the Holocaust; essential for academic libraries.

Cover Art
The Holocaust encyclopedia
Call Number: REF D 804.25 .H66 2001
In 2001, any single-volume encyclopedia attempting coverage of the Holocaust must come up short, but when the editor is Walter Laqueur and its more than 100 contributors include Raul Hilberg, Israel Gutman, Richard Breitman, Saul Friedlander, Christopher Browning, and James Young, one must take notice. ... this solid addition to Holocaust studies reflects much of the research carried out since the collapse of the Soviet bloc. Even if it falls short of being comprehensive, it should be an essential acquisition for any academic library.
