Sacred Heart University is the recipient of a collection of books on the holocaust from Dr. Geoffrey and Renée Hartman. The couple amassed a collection of scholarly works with their work on the Holocaust Survivors Film Project. Dr. Hartman was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1929 and was placed on Kindertransport to England in 1939. Renée Hartman was deported as a 10 year old from Slovakia in 1944 to the Bergen Belsen concentration camp where she and her younger sister were liberated in 1945.
