"The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database has information on almost 36,000 slaving voyages that forcibly embarked over 10 million Africans for transport to the Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. The actual number is estimated to have been as high as 12.5 million. The database and the separate estimates interface offer researchers, students and the general public a chance to rediscover the reality of one of the largest forced movements of peoples in world history."

Online database from the collection of the Derfner Judaica Museum + Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale, NY. The collection includes 250+ works of art originating from many countries and created during the Communist era. These were acquired via Eric Estorick of the famed London-based Grosvenor Gallery, which showed many artists from behind the Iron Curtain in the 1950s and 60s, and many of the works are not held by any other institution in the United States. (The museum has done a number of thematic exhibitions focusing on these works.)
