The Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies

The Rosenthal Institute pursues interrelated research, publications, and educational programs on the Holocaust. The Institute also coordinates occasional in-service courses for teachers, offers special as well as scheduled public lectures, videotapes survivor testimonies, sponsors a limited number of fellowships to young scholars, responds to public inquiries about Holocaust-related matters, and publishes monographs in its Holocaust Studies Series.

The Institute recently received a gift of over 400 books on the Holocaust -- mostly personal narratives -- which have been merged into the circulating collection of the Mina Rees Library.
