HUM264: Remembering the Holocaust in Literature and History (Tinberg & Weisberger): Books & eBooks


Books are a valuable tool for academic research which provide in-depth coverage of a topic, valuable background (and often historical) information on a topic, and an overview of key issues related to a topic. You do not necessarily have to read an entire book for every research project you are assigned.  Utilize the introduction, index, and chapter titles to narrow down which sections of a book are most pertinent to your research. You can also find other important sources through their bibliographies.

Films can also be a valuable source of information, and this page links to our film databases.
