The Alabama Holocaust Education Center Library houses one of the largest collections of Holocaust-related materials in the Southeast. Developed to supplement the AHEC’s programs and exhibits, our growing collection includes over 3,000 books and DVDs devoted to the Holocaust, the history of antisemitism, World War II, and other broadly related topics. Our library provides opportunities for research, teaching, and personal enrichment.
The AHEC Library offers digital access to online resources that supplement Holocaust education and research. For the credentials to these resources, please email Rachel Jones Lopez, AHEC Librarian/Archivist, email@example.com.

Our Archives house primary source documents that detail the history of the Alabama Holocaust Education Center and its predecessor institutions, as well as a large collection of one-of-a-kind items from or relating to the Holocaust, survivors of the Holocaust, World War II, Judaism, fascism, genocide, and other pertinent subjects.
Most items in the Archives are documents, but the collection also contains art, newspapers, journals, photographs, exhibition posters, cultural artifacts, and textiles. The items are in various states of condition and require special care.
Because AHEC must maintain environmental and security standards for all archival items, visits to the Archives are by appointment only.
To request an appointment or research assistance, please email Rachel Jones Lopez, AHEC Librarian/Archivist, email@example.com.
