Holocaust Literature

    Welcome to our bibliographic resource for individuals who are interested in the subject of Holocaust Literature. This bibliography, while limited, is quite extensive for the Internet and is intended to display a small sample of the variety of literature that exists in the canon of Holocaust Literature.

     This bibliography was designed as a web page by UMass student Kevin Brown ('96) as part of his senior project. 

     The Resources page is a listing of web sites that are devoted, at least in part, to Holocaust Studies. These resources are not limited to the subject of Holocaust Literature and include a sampling of the wide variety of Holocaust related material available on the Internet.

Bibliography

     This bibliography was constructed using the following references: 1) Writing and Rewriting the Holocaust: Narrative and the Consequences of Interpretation by James E. Young (Indiana University Press, 1988 ); and 2) A Double Dying: Reflections on Holocaust Literature by Alvin H. Rosenfield (Indiana University Press, 1980).
