Survived the 20th Century Holocaust
" Fate has placed upon the survivors of the Holocaust an unprecedented painful burden --that of revealing to the world the excruciating and most humiliating experiences of their lives. It is our goal to present herein a balanced view and representation of the Jewish and non-Jewish Holocaust as well as, in as much as possible, to present some "inside" stories, from Jewish and non-Jewish survivors alike..."
Triumph: Surviving History's Nightmare
"In 1938 the Blumenthals began their journey to the U.S. as refugees from Nazi Germany. Just before their scheduled departure from Rotterdam, the Germans invaded Holland, bombed their ship and they were trapped.

Finally they made it to America in 1948 using the tickets paid for ten years earlier..."
Lives - The Untold Stories of Jewish-Christian Women in Nazi Germany
The book by Cynthia Crane "uncovers the hidden life stories of ten women, children of Jewish-Christian marriages, whose families were persecuted during Hitler's Third Reich. These women, the Mischlinge ("half-breeds"), suffered the onslaught of anti-Jewish laws that divided spouses, families, and friends. From the early Nazi years through postwar Germany, this compelling, personal chronicle reveals the secret horrors these women endured as they struggled to survive in a nation that had betrayed them."
Memoirs of Holocaust Survivors in Canada
" The project to collect unpublished diaries and memoirs written by Holocaust survivors in Canada was initiated some years ago by Professors Mervin Butovsky and Kurt Jonassohn. They thought it important that these documents be preserved as a valuable part of the historical record because their contents would differ in significant ways from interview testimonies." Published by the Concordia University Chair in Canadian Jewish Studies

Holocaust Literature Research Institute
"The role of the Institute is to search-out and collect survivor narratives. Established formally in 1996, the Institute currently holds 650 narratives from Dr. Goldschläger's personal collection. Dr. Goldschläger is also compiling an exhaustive and comprehensive annotated bibliography of witness accounts of the Holocaust, standing at close to 2,000 texts to date. In the form of a scholarly database, it will be an inestimable resource for researchers attempting to understand the Holocaust and an essential weapon against Holocaust denial and revisionism."
