Holocaust Studies: The Basics


“Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre...”

Walter Benjamin

This guide supports teaching and researching the Holocaust. It is a gateway to primary resources, visual, textual, and oral; to secondary materials, books, journal articles; and to web sites. Feel free to contact me, as questions come up. I also would be very grateful for suggestions of resources I missed, improvements to the guide's layout, or anything else that might further its usefulness. Thank you!

Citing & Formatting Your Bibliography

Bobst Library offers several tools that help you to store your research citations and, once you are ready to write your paper, to cite and format your bibliography. There are many different citation format styles and you probably have come across them; for example, the MLA style, typically used in the humanities, or the APA style, used in the social sciences.

An excellent overview, with many examples specifically to the humanities, social sciences and sciences, can be found in Diane Hacker's Research and Documentation Online

Here is RefWorks, a tool that helps you to organize and format your citations.
