A guide to online information about the Holocaust
Holocaust Online has been designed to provide easy access to the wealth of information available online about the Holocaust. This is a personal project, based on my own family history and passion for Holocaust education. It is not affiliated with any group or institution.
The information has been divided into over 30 sections, based on the topics listed in the side bar on the left side of the page. Many of these have been further broken down into more specific aspects of that subject. Simply click on any of the topics in the side bar to begin researching any of these.
For each topic, you will find a series of links to various websites, providing information on various aspects of that subject. To date, over 3,000 links have been added, in over 150 pages / topics.
As a general guideline, the sections for each topic have been organized in the following order of links:
• General background information about that subject
• More detailed information about specific aspects of that topic
• Supporting information, such as: Photos & images , Databases, Documents and Maps
This is a work-in-progress. Each section of information will be added as the material is researched and edited. New content for each subject will also be added over time. Your help is needed to keep this site up to date. If you come across some interesting content, you can suggest new links to add, by clicking on the “Submit a link” button at the top of the page. it can also be expected that some of the sites or pages that are referred to on this site will cease to exist over any given period. Please notify us of any broken links by using the “Report broken links” button at the top of the page as well.
Holocaust Online is intended to serve as a portal into the wide-ranging impact of the Holocaust; it should be a starting point for doing additional research and inquiry, both online and in print or other media. The links included here provide access to a wide variety of content, including historical documents and images, governmental sources, detailed histories, opinion pieces and personal pages and testimonies.
This is not intended to cover all of the material available online about the Holocaust. The links have been chosen on a selective basis, based on my personal determination of the quality and the interest level of the content. The goal has been to provide a broad range of content for each topic, so that users can gain a better understanding of each subject in an efficient manner. As with any other sources of information, users are encouraged to use their own judgment and discretion in evaluating the information provided.
Not all of these sources are suitable for the purposes of academic research; when in doubt, please contact your teachers and professors in order to verify if these can be used.
