This section includes a list of reference books related to the Holocaust. All can be used as the first step in any research done on any aspect of the Holocaust. While this list is geared toward the undergraduate and graduate student, many of the sources can be used by high school students and other interested adults. All the sources, with the exception of the CD-ROM (see #5 under encyclopedias) can be found in many university libraries as well as at the New York Public Library’s Research Library.

Library Collection

The Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study has amassed an extensive collection of books relating to the Holocaust. These books are now housed in the Drew University Library and are available to all library users. The Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study has retained some duplicate copies of volumes sent to the Library as well as a collection of juvenile literature, aids for teaching, and videos.

The books are shelved on the Drew University Library open stacks with other books similar in subject. They are fully cataloged and appear in the Library’s online catalog which is searchable worldwide. See links below.

The collection can be used by anyone visiting the Library during its regular open hours. Individuals who are not Drew students, staff, or faculty may purchase a resident borrowers card from the Drew University Library. Individuals may also borrow books through their local libraries using the interlibrary loan process.
