The Florida Holocaust Museum is offering this online resource as a result of our partnership with the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The Holocaust Project (http://corporate.britannica.com/the-holocaust-project/) is Britannica’s effort to make available to the public its extensive coverage of one of history’s darkest chapters, the Holocaust. 

More than a hundred articles comprise Britannica’s coverage of the Holocaust — including information that ranges from the rise of Hitler and the meaning of the swastika to a survey of the camps and the Holocaust in art and memory — and many of the entries have been written by renowned scholar and author Dr. Michael Berenbaum, the former director of the Holocaust Research Institute at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.  Britannica’s coverage includes biographies, essays, photographs, and videos as well as discussion prompts appropriate for the classroom.

For more information about the project please contact Theodore Pappas (tpappas@eb.com) at Encyclopaedia Britannica.
