Art from CHGS

Excerpt from the recent newsletter from the U of MN’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies:

In an effort to keep our art collections vital we have migrated the CHGS owned exhibitions to the University of Minnesota Archive.   U Media Archive

Our website, which includes resources in the study of Holocaust visual history, is being updated. Our imagery and art research is in the process of being made available online through UMN digital archives, enabling greater functionality, flexibility, and reach. We are working with the University’s physical archives to document CHGS history as we near our 20th anniversary in 2017.

Student Success & Library Use

Research at the U of MN linking student success to library use is in the spotlight again, this time on Boopsie for this good news report from the Association of College and Research Libraries.

Digital resources are great, of course, and we have subject specific pages too – but don’t dismiss a visit to your library. There are great print resources in each one, and friendly helpful staff – and you can find a coffee shop in Walter and Wilson too.

Excerpt from the entry in Boopsie:
“As college libraries foster accessibility and student engagement, they contribute to the success of their students through increased graduation rates, increased retention rates, and higher GPAs. When college libraries contribute to student success, they increase institutional prestige while preparing future leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world.”

Kristallnacht – books in our catalog


Kristallnacht, literally, “Night of Crystal,” is often referred to as the “Night of Broken Glass.” The name refers to the wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms which took place on November 9 and 10, 1938. This wave of violence took place throughout Germany, annexed Austria, and in areas of the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia recently occupied by German troops.

–Excerpted from introduction to Kristallnacht in the Holocaust Encyclopedia on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website.

The following titles are English language books listed in the University of Minnesota Libraries catalog with the subject heading “Kristallnacht, 1938″. You may search the catalog using keyword “Kristallnacht” to find additional listings.
