Human Rights Database

It is noted that "In the 20th century alone, more than 20 million people died as a result of genocide. Still millions of others endured violence, oppression, and violations of their basic human rights, yet survived to tell their stories." (Alexander Street Press).

The Human Rights Studies Online database provides documentation to the atrocities and repercussions associated with major human rights violations worldwide from 1900 to 2010. This resource contains an extensive mix of both primary and secondary source material, including books, streaming video, newspaper clippings, UN documents, and more. Users can search by events, such as the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, Cambodia, Kosovo War, Darfur, and much more.

Access Human Rights Studies Online via the University Libraries website.
