The resources bring an unprecedented collection of original historical documents and personal histories to users.

Documents include Ardelia Hall Collection (1945-1952)-which documents the repatriation of Jews' personal possessions that were seized by the Nazis during the Holocaust; Dachau Concentration Camp Entry Records; Flossenburg Concentration Camp Entry Registers; Mauthausen Death Books; Captured German Records-concentration camp records including administrative reports, releases, and deaths; German War Crime Records; Nuremberg Interrogation Records and Concentration Camp Pages-background on each camp, maps, timelines of events, and accounts of key events. Footnote Holocaust Archives also includes more than 600 stories of individual victims and survivors made available through a partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
