Recommended Reading

A listing of all my reference material that formed the foundation of Angel of Alta Langa would be quite long and include not only books but also scholarly journal articles, blogs, and websites such as The United States Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem, and The Jewish Virtual Library.
