The online “Encyclopedia of World History,” has a chapter on Latin America, 1945-2000, with some social, political and historical context for Magical Realism in Latin American Literature.
This Web page, offered by the California State’s College of Education, is a brief but relevant section on Latin American Literature and Magical Realism.
Created in 1995, this award-winning site is maintained by the Alliance for a Better Earth. In describing why it was named a Best Site of 1997, CNET says: "As time passes, memory can fade. The Cybrary of the Holocaust uses art, discussion groups, photos, poems, and a wealth of facts to preserve powerful memories and to educate scholars and newcomers alike about the Holocaust....” (CNET, 2/26/97) We especially recommend Alan Jacob’s photo-art exhibit on Auschwitz.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is a leading international Jewish human rights agency. It also maintains the renowned Museum of Tolerance ( Museum of Tolerance ). This Multimedia Learning Center contains a wealth of information and activities for students, teachers and anyone with an interest learning about the Holocaust, the Nazi era, and World War II. Click on the “Teacher’s Resources” link to find some great resources – especially the “36 Questions About the Holocaust” (FAQ’s, or Frequently Asked Questions) in your choice of English, Spanish or Swedish. Also see the “Interactive Glossary of the Holocaust” and other resources such as bibliographies, articles, a timeline and more.
This is not a fancy, hi-tech Web site, but it contains a free archive of documents, photographs, recordings, and essays regarding the Holocaust, including direct refutation of Holocaust-denial. It is maintained by a group of committed individuals who have a strong interest in the subject and the academic background to bring needed information to others. Of special interest is their collection of “Short Essays” (the link is in the Frame on the left side of the webpage) with essays on various aspects of the Holocaust ranging in length from 500 to 3000 words. Other essays at the site are much longer.
A global company called ThinkQuest sponsors the annual “Internet Challenge” -- a competition for High School students and teachers to create high quality Web sites. This site won the 1997 Challenge. “With outstanding content and elegant web architecture, this site provides the student with a rich resource for the study of the Holocaust. In-depth and accurate information is provided about the people, events, and social effects of this sad chapter in history. The links to other sites and the source citations are equally useful and comprehensive. Audio clips of Holocaust survivors, several interactive features, and well-chosen illustrations make this an excellent and must-see history site.” See particularly the “Interactive Timeline” and the “Summary of the Holocaust” pages.
Produced by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, College of Education, University of South Florida, this site is intended for teachers but students and other researchers will find it an excellent resource. It presents the Holocaust in three large sections: Timeline, People and The Arts (literature, art and music). It is beautifully organized, interactive and offers multimedia files to create a rich research experience.

A film called “Almost a Woman” was made that is based on “When I was Puerto Rican.” The educational TV producers, PBS, have a good Web site for learning something about the historical and social context of of Ms. Santiago’s memoir.
