Holocaust Materials

CandlesThe Holocaust Collection of the Lydia M. Olson Library consists of books, journals, audio-visual materials, and documents relating to the Holocaust. The aim of the Collection is to provide Northern Michigan University students and the public of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with a record of information about the Holocaust and to promote both awareness and an understanding of the event and its significance for all humanity, now and for the future.

Holocaust History Project - The primary function of this link is to directly combat Holocaust denial, especially the pseudo-scholarship of British historian David Irving. The articles themselves are of mixed quality - some of them being derivative of existing literature and not always written by an established scholar, but they are nonetheless academic and respectable with some of them of particular interest on specific subjects.

As of 2016, THHP website is no longer available online but all of its contents are accessible via several hundred captures in the Internet Archive. However starting April 2016 the French NGO and project phdn.org has put back online an almost complete copy of the original THHP website.
