Trial access to Prosecuting the Holocaust: British investigations into Nazi war crimes, 1944-1949

Sarah EGilmore14 June 2019

UCL has trial access to Prosecuting the Holocaust: British investigations into Nazi war crimes, 1944-1949 until 14th August 2019. To access off-site please use Desktop@UCL Anywhere.

Drawn from the UK National Archives Prosecuting the Holocaust: British investigations into Nazi war crimes, 1944-1949 contains a wealth of information regarding the British government’s efforts to investigate and prosecute Nazi crimes during the period 1944-1949. The evidence gathered sheds light on almost every aspect of the Holocaust, from the concentration camp system to the mass murder of the “incurably sick” in psychiatric hospitals. More importantly, it gives a voice to the victims of these atrocities, many of whom testified about their experiences immediately after the war.

The files include materials from the WO 309 (War Office: Judge Advocate General’s Office; British Army of the Rhine War Crimes Group), WO 311 (War Office: Judge Advocate General’s Office; Military Deputy’s Department), and WO 235 (War Office: Judge Advocate General’s Office; War Crimes Case Files) series.

Trial access to Database of Latin Dictionaries (DLD) and Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS)

Sarah EGilmore7 June 2019

UCL has trial access to Database of Latin Dictionaries (DLD) and Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS) until 5th July 2019.

The Database of Latin Dictionaries (DLD) is a resource for research on the Latin language throughout the ages. Because of its broad spectrum of dictionaries, the DLD offers an overview of Latin vocabulary that an isolated dictionary can not give. In order to cover all possible perspectives on Latin vocabulary, the DLD offers several kinds of dictionaries: defining and translating, thematic, medieval and early modern. Starting in 2005 with only two dictionaries, it has now grown into a collection of 20 dictionaries.

The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS) is the first dictionary to focus on British Medieval Latin. Covering the period stretching from Gildas (fl. 540) to William Camden (1600), it is based on original research which has been carried out for the purpose of recording their distinctive lexical characteristics. It is also based on systematic searches within computer databases, including the Library of Latin Texts (LLT-A and LLT-B), where many of the texts can be found that make up the sources for the DMLBS.
