Wiki Purpose

This wiki is a listing of children's, young adult, and adult books about the Holocaust and modern-day genocides appropriate for use in the K-12 classroom, available to borrow from the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center (DHRC). The DHRC collection is located in the Charles & Renate Frydman Educational Center (ERC), 116 Allyn Hall, Wright State University (WSU), Dayton, OH. The information compiled here is linked to both the DHRC website and the ERC's website. Most of these materials are accessible to universities in the state of Ohio through OhioLINK.

Each entry on the wiki includes the call number, title and author of the book, the grade range appropriate, an annotation and links to classroom support materials that can be found on the Internet. A brief description of contents of linked websites are included for each link.

Use of tags are helpful in cross-referencing items in the wiki. They will be as general as possible, but will be helpful to locate material that might be listed across many pages. The "Search" box may also be helpful to locate materials.

Local teachers not affiliated with WSU may borrow up to 5 items from the collection on a free DHRC Courtesy Card issued by the ERC. The DHRC Courtesy Card Policy is attached. NOTE: Each teacher must have a letter from his/her school principal on letterhead acknowledging 1) the teacher will be using the materials in a unit on the Holocaust and 2) the school will accept financial responsibility for all items checked out on the card. This letter must be submitted when applying for a courtesy card. The DHRC Courtesy Card must be renewed annually.

This wiki was created in the Fall of 2009 and is being maintained by a student worker funded by the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center.
