the entrance to Auschwitz with the gates open

Yeshiva University's Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is a new online program centered on the Holocaust and other genocides perpetrated from the early 20th century to today. Troves of writing, historical documents, art, testimonies, and other materials have been created and compiled in the years following the Holocaust, giving it the dubious distinction of being the most widely documented genocide in human history.

Given this vast universe of Holocaust documentation and literature, for this guide, we have curated a selection of relevant resources for Fish Center students (please do not think this is the entirety of our resources regarding the Holocaust—this guide is not comprehensive, although it is extensive). These include print materials and ebooks; scholarly journals and databases; oral and video testimonies; historical archives including maps, government documents, and photo collections; links to Holocaust museums and memorials around the world; and so much more. These resources are entirely free to you as a student of Yeshiva University, and intended to help enrich your learning experience with us. 

Whether this guide helps you deepen your research, complete an assignment, or expand your understanding and awareness of this most tragic historical event, we hope it helps make your academic life easier and more fulfilling.

Any questions or concerns? Chat with us in real time, book a one-on-one research consultation with a Gottesman librarian, or send us an email. We are always happy to help.
