Suzanne Statland Collection

Identifier: MS-0137

Scope and Contents

The Suzanne Statland Collection in Holocaust Studies was created in 1991 when Dr. Harry Statland established an endowment in honor of his late wife, a researcher and collector on the subject. Focusing on the rise and reign of Nazism and the ensuing Holocaust, the collection consists of published and manuscript material such as books, periodicals, pamphlets, diaries, correspondence, photographs, news clippings, reports, interviews and oral histories, and propaganda and miscellaneous items. Primary resources and other archival material are housed in the Dr. Kenneth J. LaBudde Department of Special Collections; these items may be consulted on-site in the department's Reading Room.

Related secondary resources located in the general stacks of the UMKC Miller Nichols Library, much of which can be checked out, include books, periodicals, government documents, microforms, and music and audiovisual material. Search the UMKC Library Catalog (MERLIN) using the subject heading: Holocaust, Jewish, 1939-1945.
