The national Days of Remembrance, which commemorate the Holocaust, are April 11 – April 18, 2010. To honor the Days of Remembrance, the Andersen Library is showing films on April 12 – April 14 which are free and open to everyone. These films will be shown on the main floor of the Library in the TV area.
The films and their dates/showtimes are:
- Monday, April 12: The Diary of Anne Frank – Noon, 4 pm, and 8 pm
- Tuesday, April 13: Schindler’s List – Noon, 4 pm, and 8 pm

In addition to the films, there is a display with photos and posters about the Holocaust on the Library’s main floor, along with a small sampling of the Library’s books on the Holocaust.
The Library has many books on the Holocaust and on World War II. You can find these books by searching HALCAT, the library’s online catalog. Articles about the Holocaust can be found in many of the Library’s online article databases, such as Historical Abstracts and ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The New York Times, 1851-2006.
