Module 4: Resources

Action and Accountability


The content for this project would not have been possible if not for our UTEP faculty and Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission consultants.  We also referred to secondary research for inspiration and to support content development. We have done our best to attribute all sources here, as well as point faculty to additional resources that may encourage further study. If there are any issues regarding attribution or copyright, please use “Contact Us” and we will resolve those concerns immediately.
