Subject Spotlight | Holocaust Memorial

Online Reading List - January 2022 - Holocaust Memorial | York St John University (talis.com)

Moving into 2022, we're now onto our third month of our President of Education, Aimee's, Subject Spotlight campaign.  This month we're focusing on the theme of ‘Holocaust Memorial’, to remember the millions of people murdered under Nazi persecution and to ensure that the atrocities committed within this genocide are never forgotten or repeated. 

The literature included in this month's spotlight range from fiction to non-fiction texts, exploring the diverse perspectives of those persecuted within the Holocaust. Included on our reading list are narratives written from the perspective of diverse authors, ranging from the Jewish lived experience of the Holocaust, to the Roma Gypsy perspective to the accounts of persecuted homosexuals, to name but a few. 

If you're back on campus this month, head to the library to see our Subject Spotlight ‘Holocaust Memorial’ stand or head online to access our online reading list for this month. Please take some time to widen your thinking on what you may already know about the Holocaust - education on this atrocity is key to ensuring that the memory of the individuals persecuted and murdered is never forgotten, but more importantly to ensure that such an event never occurs again.
