BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado in Boulder is the new home of an extensive collection of Holocaust-era documents, books and photographs.

The university on Tuesday announced the donation of the Mazal (Mah-ZAHL’) Holocaust Collection, calling it the world’s largest privately owned Holocaust archive and the most significant in the United States outside museums.

The collection includes original transcripts of the Nuremburg trials. It was amassed by Harry W. Mazal, a retired Mexico City businessman who lived in San Antonio, Texas, before his death in 2011.

Daughter Aimee Mazal Skillin says the university has the capability to maintain, restore and share the collection with the world.

The university hopes to make the collection available to the general public by the end of the year.
