Holocaust Bibliography

This bibliography is the result of two research projects. The first was an undergraduate project for an English course. The second was a children's literature course I completed around 2002. I have not updated the bibliography since then, so be aware that it is missing some great books which have been published in the past few years. If I ever have time, I would love to update my bibliography, but I know that if I were to wait until everything was updated...I'd never get around to posting it at all.
