Collection Information

The Agnes Tennenbaum Holocaust Library Collection at the University of South Alabama Libraries constitutes a specially designated collection that was established as a gift from the Gulf Coast Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education (GCCHHRE). First founded in 2013, this collection is augmented annually through a regular donation of newly selected material. Presently the collection contains over 2000 cataloged titles. It is named in honor of Agnes Tennenbaum (1922-2016), a former resident of Mobile and Holocaust survivor who dedicated her final years to educating the Mobile community on the Holocaust and passing on the memory of those who perished. Engaging with the facts and memories of the Holocaust demonstrates the dangers of unchecked hatred and the need to prevent genocide.
