New Addition to WWU: the Edward S. Setchko Collection 

Western Libraries Heritage Resources has recently negotiated the transfer of the Edward S. Setchko collection from the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley, to Western Washington University. 

This important collection of over 1000 books and other rare monographs represents critical post-war scholarship on the Holocaust, including documentation of antisemitism, the ghettos and camps, survivor accounts, and other post-war memoirs. 

This collection will become part of Western Libraries Special Collections. Although cataloging these materials will be an ongoing process, those interested in browsing the collection are welcome to contact Special Collections staff at speccoll@wwu.edu, or you may also contact the Director of Heritage Resources, Elizabeth Joffrion at Elizabeth.Joffrion@wwu.edu / (360) 650-3283.
