CPHS has approximately 39,000 print resources. You can consult our online catalog, DESTINY, both in school and from home, to find out if we have materials on your topic. Read the descriptions of each resource. If a resource looks like it has potential, write down the Dewey number of the book. Most of our World War II and Resistance Movements books are located in the and 940.53 section.

Most of the books related to the general topic of World War II Resistance Movements have been pulled and placed on a cart for you. You will need to check the INDEX at the back of these books to find specific information that you are looking for. You may use these books in the LMC but, since there are many classes using the books, you will not be allowed to check them out. Look for books on more specific topics in DESTINY. For instance, we have several books on Oskar Schindler, found in 921 SCH.

You can search DESTINY right from the search box above.
