Seventy-five years have passed since the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp, a place where more than one million innocent people were killed, including Jews, Roma, Jehovah’s Witnesses, the disabled, and others targeted by the Nazi regime. On January 27, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we commemorate the victims of persecution whose lives were cut mercilessly short.
Published today, the LibGuide “Holocaust History: Concentration Camps” is a comprehensive guide to provide resources and links to different research material at Chapman University. The guide’s primary goal is to serve as a starting point for general research on the camps, with resources on genocide, survivors’ memoirs, and primary resources. The LibGuide is inclusive to all of Chapman University’s resources from the Leatherby Libraries, Sala and Aron Samueli Holocaust Memorial Library, Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library, Oskar Schindler Archive, and the Center for American War Letters Archives. This LibGuide contains tabs on various former camps. Each book title links directly to the library’s online catalog. In addition, there is a separate tab dedicated to direct links to databases that include the topic of the Holocaust. For more information on the Holocaust, Tiana Taliep, the Archivist of the Oskar Schindler Archive is available Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in The Joyce and Saul Brandman Survivors Room on the 4th floor of the Leatherby Libraries.
