After representation? : the Holocaust, literature, and culture by R. Clifton Spargo( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 2,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Representation? explores one of the major issues in Holocaust studies - the intersection of culture and memory in artistic expression, particularly within literature. What imaginative literature brings to the study of the Holocaust is an ability to test the limits of language and its conventions. After Representation? explores the changing meaning of the Holocaust for different generations, audiences, and contexts."--Jacket
Case closed : Holocaust survivors in postwar America by Beth B Cohen( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following the end of World War II, it was widely reported by the media that Jewish refugees found lives filled with opportunity and happiness in America. However, for most of the 140,000 Jewish Displaced Persons (DPs) who immigrated to the United States from Europe in the years between 1946 and 1954, it was a much more complicated story." "Case Closed challenges the prevailing optimistic perception of the lives of Holocaust survivors in postwar America by scrutinizing their first years through the eyes of those who lived it. Cohen explores how the Truman Directive allowed the American Jewish community to handle the financial and legal responsibility for survivors, and shows what assistance the community offered the refugees and what help was not available."--BOOK JACKET

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the monumental 7-volume encyclopaedia that the present work inaugurates will make available - in one place for the first time - detailed information about the universe of camps, sub-camps, and ghettos established and operated by the Nazis - altogether some 20,000 sites, from Norway to North Africa and from France to Russia. This volume covers three groups of camps: the early camps established in the first year of Hitler's rule, the major concentration camps with their constellations of sub-camps that operated under the control of the SS-Business Administration Main Office, and youth camps. Overview essays precede entries on individual camps and sub-camps. Each entry provides basic information about the purpose of the site; the prisoners, guards, working and living conditions; and key events in its history. Material drawn from personal testimonies helps convey the character of each site, while source citations for each entry provide a path to additional information
Nazi empire-building and the Holocaust in Ukraine by Wendy Lower( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 16 July 1941, Adolf Hitler convened top Nazi leaders at his headquarters in East Prussia to dictate how they would rule the newly occupied eastern territories. Ukraine, the "jewel" in the Nazi empire, would become a German colony administered by Heinrich Himmler's SS and police, Hermann Goring's economic plunderers, and a host of other satraps. Focusing on the Zhytomyr region and weaving together official German wartime records, diaries, memoirs, and personal interviews, Wendy Lower provides the most complete assessment available of German colonization and the Holocaust in Ukraine." "Midlevel "managers," Lower demonstrates, played major roles in mass murder, and locals willingly participated in violence and theft. Lower puts names and faces to local perpetrators, bystanders, beneficiaries, as well as resisters. She argues that Nazi actions in the region evolved from imperial arrogance and ambition; hatred of Jews, Slavs, and Communists; careerism and pragmatism; greed and fear. In her analysis of the murderous implementation of Nazi "race" and population policy in Zhytomyr, Lower shifts scholarly attention from Germany itself to the eastern outposts of the Reich, where the regime truly revealed its core beliefs, aims, and practices."--Jacket
Deaf people in Hitler's Europe by Donna F Ryan( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical atlas of the Holocaust by United States Holocaust Memorial Museum( )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To great critical acclaim, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened on the Mall in Washington, D.C., in the spring of 1993, with the purpose of educating the public to the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime during World War II against Jews and other victims. The Atlas presents the story of the Holocaust in all its specific geographical details - country by country, ghetto by ghetto, camp by camp, action by action. Through more than 230 full-color maps and accompanying text, the story of this tragic period of world history is made clear - from the location of the Jewish and Romani (Gypsy) communities in 1933 to the makeup of postwar Europe in 1949-50. The maps and the text explain the physical facts of the deportations, concentration camps, and the extermination of the victims of the Nazi state in Europe, from Germany and the western countries to Poland and the other areas in the east

Commissioned by the U.S. Holocaust Research Institute." ...

Sobibor : a history of a Nazi death camp by Jules Schelvis( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobibor is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there." "Sent in June 1943 to Sobibor, where his wife and family were murdered, Jules Schelvis has written the first book-length, fully documented account of the camp. He details the creation of the killing centre, its personnel, the use of railways, selections, forced labour, gas chambers, escape attempts and the historic uprising." "In documenting this part of Holocaust history, this well-researched account advances our knowledge and understanding of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the European Jews."--Jacket
Jewish forced labor under the Nazis : economic needs and racial aims, 1938-1944 by Wolf Gruner( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forced labor was a key feature of Nazi anti-Jewish policy and shaped the daily life of almost every Jewish family in occupied Europe. For the first time, this book systematically describes the implementation of forced labor for Jews in Germany, Austria, the Protectorate, and the various occupied Polish territories. As early as the end of 1938, compulsory labor for Jews had been introduced in Germany and annexed Austria by the labor administration. Similar programs subsequently were established by civil administrations in the German-occupied Czech and Polish territories. At its maximum extent, more than one million Jewish men and women toiled for private companies and public builders, many of them in hundreds of now often-forgotten special labor camps. This study refutes the widespread thesis that compulsory work was organized only by the SS, and that exploitation was only an intermediate tactic on the way to mass murder or, rather, that it was only a facet in the destruction of the Jews."--Publisher's website

Resistance : the Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Israel Gutman( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 19, 1943, thousands of Nazi troops were given the order to remove all Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, a few square blocks sheltering the remnants of the half million or more Jewish citizens of Poland's capital, to the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz. They were to kill those who resisted. A few hundred of the trapped Jews, mostly teenagers, armed only with pistols, Molotov cocktails, and a few light machine guns, vowed to fight back. Resistance is the full story of the uprising and the events leading to it, told by a survivor of the battle who is now a world-renowned Israeli scholar of the Holocaust. Warsaw in the 1920s and 1930s was the home of Europe's largest and most vibrant Jewish community. It included the rich, the poor, and the middle class; casual assimilationists and ardent Zionists; representatives of the full spectrum of political and religious factions. Then came the German onslaught of ruthless violence against the Jews--isolation and starvation amid desperation and disease--then deportations. As the ghetto walls rose, hundreds of thousands were rounded up and sent to Treblinka. But resistance began to take shape, and when the final attack order came, the ghetto fighters stood ready. Includes excerpts from diaries, letters, and other documents of the period

Jewish honor courts : revenge, retribution, and reconciliation in Europe and Israel after the Holocaust by Laura Jockusch( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of World War II, virtually all European countries struggled with the dilemma of citizens who had collaborated with Nazi occupiers. Jewish communities in particular faced the difficult task of confronting collaborators among their own ranks--those who had served on Jewish councils, worked as ghetto police, or acted as informants. European Jews established their own tribunals--honor courts--for dealing with these crimes, while Israel held dozens of court cases against alleged collaborators under a law passed two years after its founding. In Jewish Honor Courts: Revenge, Retribution, and Reconciliation in Europe and Israel after the Holocaust, editors Laura Jockusch and Gabriel N. Finder bring together scholars of Jewish social, cultural, political, and legal history to examine this little-studied and fascinating postwar chapter of Jewish history.--Provided by publisher

The choice of the Jews under Vichy : between submission and resistance by Adam Rayski( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on extensive research into previously unpublished sources, including the archives of the military, the Central Consistory of the Jews of France, police prefectures, and Philippe Petain, Adam Rayski clearly demonstrates the Vichy government's role as an accomplice in the Nazi program of genocide. He also explores the sizeable prewar divide between French-born and immigrant Jews. This manifested itself in cultural conflicts and mutual antagonism as well as in varied initial responses to the antisemitic edicts and actions of the Vichy government. Rayski reveals how these communities eventually set aside their differences and united to resist the Vichy-supported Nazi threat."--Jacket
