The Tauber Holocaust Library collects books dealing with every aspect of the Holocaust, and makes them available for use on the premises by students, scholars, researchers, and the general public. The collection focuses on:
The library holdings include the complete transcripts, in English and in German, of the Nuremberg and various other wartime trials, and the subsequent Nuremberg hearings involving the German military commanders on trial for war crimes. The library also has the complete proceedings and transcripts in English of the Adolf Eichmann trial held in Israel.
The Tauber Holocaust Library’s holdings are primarily in English, but with a sizable number in more than 12 languages, among them German, French, Dutch, Czech, Polish, and Russian. The library has been officially recognized by the California State Library as a California State Resource. This is a non-circulating library, and it does not participate in any library loan exchange program.
The Tauber Holocaust Library has a collection of rare books from the Holocaust era, including books published by the Nazi party and Julius Streicher’s anti-Semitic press. Also included are immediate post-war publications, documenting the events of the Holocaust for the first time in print.
For those interested in specific individuals or names, tracing books can be very helpful if the records survived the war. The Tauber Holocaust Library’s collection of tracing books is available in the reading room.
