David Irving: Britain's Holocaust "Revisionist"

Released in Mark 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....
The Art and Politics of Arthur Szyk

This exhibition of works by Polish-born Jewish artist and activist Arthur Szyk from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum presents over 40 pieces by Szyk, dating from 1913 to 1949. There are book illustrations, pages from Passover haggadahs, and scenes from the biblical Book of Esther.

Witness to the Holocaust

Developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology Library and Information Center, this site grew out of the Witness to the Holocaust Memorial Project, which began in 1978 to refute claims that the Holocaust never happened. The Project was founded by the late Fred Roberts Crawford, who was the directory of Emory University's Center for Research in Social Change (he also was a prisoner of war in...
Open Hearts/Closed Doors-The War Orphans Project

The situation of Jews in and around Europe during the time of the Holocaust has been well documented, but an equally compelling question is what became of those Jews (especially Jewish children) who were part of the emigration from Europe after WWII concluded. The Virtual Museum of Canada has taken up the mantle of telling the story of those young Jewish orphans who made their way to Canada during...
The Jewish Virtual Library

The Jewish Virtual Library website is a project designed and maintained by the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE), which was established as a nonprofit organization in 1993. From the homepage, visitors are presented with a series of topical areas such as "History", "The Holocaust", "Politics", and "Travel", along eight other additional areas. The "Reference" area is quite helpful, as...
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: Flight and Rescue

As this online exhibit opens, visitors will hear a prelude played on the piano and a map of Eastern Europe and Russia unfold before their eyes. This is the beginning of the Flight and Rescue exhibit, presented by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. With the use of powerful visual materials, primary documents, interviews, and striking narration, this interactive exhibit tells the story of...
Holocaust Encyclopedia

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has some tremendous online resources, and the recent addition of the Holocaust Encyclopedia continues in this tradition. The interactive Encyclopedia includes hundreds of articles that cover topics like the Third Reich, refugees, ghettos, and the liberation of Nazi camps. Each entry contains hypertext links to other entries and relevant...
Museum of Tolerance

The Museum of Tolerance, which has received the Global Peace and Tolerance Award from the Friends of the United Nations, is "a human rights laboratory and educational center dedicated to challenging visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today." While those in Los Angeles will want to...
Holocaust Encyclopedia: Voyage of the St. Louis

In May of 1939, passengers boarded the S.S. St. Louis in Hamburg, Germany. Almost all of the 937 passengers aboard the St. Louis were Jewish refugees who were in the process of applying for visas to enter the United States from Cuba. When the Cuban government refused to admit all but 28 of these passengers, some of the passengers personally appealed to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt for...
Digital Holocaust Memory

Led by Victoria Grace Walden at the University of Sussex, Digital Holocaust Memory explores the opportunities and challenges of preserving the history of the Holocaust in a technological age. The site begins by noting that we are transitioning "from an era dominated by face-to-face survivor testimony," to "an age characterised by mediated memory." To ensure that accurate accounts of the Holocaust...
