Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and American Library Association, examines the motives, pressures and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war and genocide in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s. It raises challenging and important questions about this critical moment in American history. What did Americans know? What more could have been done?
UCI Libraries invites you to continue to explore these questions with additional readings and resources on the Holocaust.
Americans and the Holocaust was made possible by the generous support of lead sponsor Jeannie & Jonathan Lavine. Additional major funding was provided by the Bildners — Joan & Allen z”l, Elisa Spungen & Rob, Nancy & Jim; and Jane and Daniel Och. The Museum's exhibitions are also supported by the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund, established in 1990.
