The Operation Reinhard death camps : Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka by Yitzhak Arad( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the code name Operation Reinhard, more than one and a half million Jews were murdered between 1942 and 1943 in the concentration camps of Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka, located in Nazi-occupied Poland. Unlike more well-known camps, which were used both for slave labor and extermination, these camps existed purely to murder Jews. Few victims survived to tell their stories, and the camps were largely forgotten after they were dismantled in 1943. The Operation Reinhard Death Camps bears eloquent witness to this horrific tragedy. This newly revised and expanded edition includes new material on the history of the Jews under German occupation in Poland; the execution and timing of Operation Reinhard; information about the ghettos in Lublin, Warsaw, Krakow, Radom, and Galicia; and updated numbers of the victims who were murdered during deportations. In addition to documenting the horror of the camps, Yitzhak Arad recounts the stories of those courageous enough to struggle against the Nazis and their "final solution." Arad's work retrieves the experiences of Operation Reinhard's victims and survivors from obscurity and exposes a terrible chapter in humanity's history"--

3 editions published in 1993 in Russian and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of the letters sent by Jews from all over the USSR to Ehrenburg and of some of Ehrenburg's replies. Correspondents in 1943-45 wrote mainly about the Nazi genocide of Jews in their towns. They describe events in Odessa, in the former Jewish agricultural colonies in the Crimea and southern Ukraine, in Khmelnik, Vinkovtsy, Lugansk (Voroshilovgrad), the Mineralnye Vody area, and other places. They also complain about growing antisemitism and difficulties in restitution of the Jewish property left behind by evacuated Jews who returned to their towns. Letters of 1945-53 complain about official and popular antisemitism - distrust of Jewish survivors, lack of respect for the victims, the myth of the Jew evading the front during the war, a numerus clausus in higher education, etc. Letters of 1953-66 also complain about the impunity of antisemitic acts, discrimination against Jews, and the silence on the Jews' contribution to the Soviet economy and culture. Pp. 9-105 contain an article by Altshuler, "Erenburg i yevrei (nabrosok portreta)" ["Ehrenburg and the Jews (a Draft of a Portrait)"], which, inter alia, discusses Ehrenburg's struggle against antisemitism in the USSR; the text of his letter to Stalin protesting against the plans to deport the Soviet Jews is included
Toldot ha-Shoʼah : Berit ha-Moʻatsot ṿeha-sheṭaḥim ha-mesupaḥim by Yitzhak Arad( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in Hebrew and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following two brief chapters on the condition of the Jews in Tsarist Russia (18th-19th centuries), and in the USSR in the interwar period, including antisemitism, focuses on the perpetration of the Holocaust by the Nazi occupiers of the USSR and Soviet-annexed territories from the period of the German army's invasion in June 1941. Presents details on the actions of the German civil and military administrations, the German army, the Einsatzgruppen, and local authorities and civilians in various regions in carrying out the mass murders of Jews. Notes that Nazi anti-Jewish propaganda emphasized eradication of Judeo-bolshevism. Pogroms were carried out by local populations in Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Bessarabia, Bukovina, and Belarus. Local authorities also collaborated in the ghettoization and deportation of the Jews. Discusses, also, murder of German Jews, Soviet Jewish POWs, Jews in mixed marriages, and children in orphanages; the confiscation and looting of Jewish property; the attitudes of various Churches toward the persecution of Jews; activities of non-Jewish rescuers and of Jewish resistance fighters and partisans; and Soviet antisemitism in the immediate postwar period. Ch. 49 (p. 1005-1015) discusses the number of victims and survivors in various parts of the USSR
