The paper seeks to describe the development of an internet web site to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2004. The paper provides a descriptive overview of the development of the site, detailing the planning of the site, its contents and the subsequent reaction. That the public library is well-placed to engage in creation of information resources that challenge ignorance and racism. The paper suggests that further research needs to be done into library-created resources created for communities. It is of practical use for libraries planning the creation of subject-specific internet resources or community web sites.
