Holocaust & Genocide Studies Center

In an effort to help foster research and understanding of genocide, as well as hopefully one day end it, USF Libraries has created the Holocaust & Genocide Studies Center. University Beat takes you to the Center to examine its archives, which include access to a collection of nearly 52-thousand video testimonies from Holocaust survivors, rescuers and war crimes trials participants.
