Resource Room

The Holocaust Resource Room (Attenborough tower 601) provides physical location within the University of Leicester to centrailse, co-ordinate and develop the activities of the Stanley Burton Centre.

This is where members meet to co-ordinate and develop activities, as well as staging some of the Centre's events. It also provides specialised sources (primary sources, books, journals, etc.), facilities (computer, laser printer, and in due time DVD/VHS and photocopying facilities) and expertise outside the University library at regular opening hours. Finally, it serves as a teaching and seminar venue for classes that are related to the Centre's activities.   

The Holocaust Resource Room is run by a group of student volunteers. Find out more about volunteering.
