GALILEO Resources for International Holocaust Remembrance Day

In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a memorial day for the victims of the Jewish Holocaust.

GALILEO provides several resources with images, videos, articles, and more to help us remember the events of that time.

Use the new Discover GALILEO search box in GALILEO High School or GALILEO Teen to search for articles as well as historical images and videos. Search for Jewish Holocaust or any related person, place, or event, such as Adolf Hitler, Auschwitz, or Nuremberg Trials. Elementary students can search for topics in Britannica Elementary, SIRS Discoverer, or Kids Search.

Encyclopædia Britannica offers a special spotlight titled Reflections on the Holocaust with encyclopedia articles, images, videos, educational materials, and much more.

For book recommendations, search NoveList or NoveList K-8 for Jewish Holocaust to find books for all ages. The NoveList editors also offer suggested book lists for grades 3-5, grades 6-8, teens, and adults as well as a list of picture books for grades 3-8.

For a Georgia perspective, browse or search Georgia historical newspaper, the Southern Israelite, in the Digital Library of Georgia. The Southern Israelite covers not only the news of Jews in the southern United States, but also the issues that involved Jewish populations throughout the nation and world. For news articles related to the Jewish Holocaust, search for “Nazi holocaust” or extermination.

You can also view the archive of a webinar on Holocaust Resources in GALILEO.

Please Contact Us if you have questions or comments or if you need to report problems.
