Holocaust Survivors

Originally a photography project, Holocaust Survivors has developed into a touring exhibit and a Website. Directed by John Menszer, this moving and well-constructed site is an outstanding adjunct to any class or course that discusses the Holocaust.

Adolf Eichmann

Released in March 2000 by the Israeli State Archives, the memoirs of Adolf Eichmann offer a chilling, though self-serving, account of the workings of the Nazi's "Final Solution." Although most scholars dismiss the diary as an attempt by Eichmann to defend or exonerate himself while on trial for his central role in the Holocaust, the manuscript was still sealed in the Israeli archives for 39 years....
