Rose Library

"Sitting in the library, reading about the Holocaust, you always have a way out to the city, to the history of the house, the garden, the sky, to the present,"
Julian Bonder, Architect

Doctoral level research depends upon comprehensive library holdings, and Center faculty and students enjoy a first – class library with over 9,000 titles and growing. Originally conceived as a library for Holocaust research, with the Center’s mandate expanded to genocide studies, the range of titles has broadened. It continues to grow, with acquisitions from other genocides. The newest addition to this collection is access to the 55,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide through the Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive.

The Collection includes a broad range of materials on Holocaust and Genocide including:

  • History
  • Sociology
  • Photography
  • Memoirs
  • Literature
