Holocaust Display in the IUP Libraries

Posted on 10/9/2018 8:54:57 AM

Visit the first floor of the library to view the IUP Libraries’ display about the Holocaust during World War Two. See a Torah that was printed in 1566, which is from the IUP Special Collections and University Archives (Stapleton Library, Room 302). More than 70 years ago, this Torah survived a book burning during the Holocaust, and it was professionally restored by Etherington Conservation Services.

Learn more about the Holocaust at the speaker event “Police during the Nazi Era: Why is it Relevant to study this today?” Meet Holocaust survivors at this multi-speaker presentation that will be held in the Eberly Auditorium on Tuesday, October 16, 2:00–6:30 p.m. 

For more information about the Holocaust that extinguished the lives of more than 6 million people in Europe, visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
