Prisoners of war, prisoners of peace : captivity, homecoming, and memory in World War II by Bob Moore( )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Authors highlight a number of important comparatives. Whereas for the British and Americans held by the Germans and Japanese, the end of the war meant a swift repatriation and demobilization, for the Germans, it heralded the beginning of an imprisonment that, for some lasted until 1956. These and many more moving stories are revealed here for the first time."--Jacket

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

14 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 986 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

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Dutch and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How was it possible, in a country proud of its traditions of liberalism and tolerance, that such a large proportion of its Jewish citizens could fall victim to Nazi genocide, when those in France and Belgium fared markedly better? Bob Moore's comprehensive study, the first in English in nearly 30 years, examines all the central elements of the question, exploring in depth the nature of the Nazi persecutors, their victims, and the specific circumstances of the German occupation of the Netherlands.--Publisher description
Survivors : Jewish self-help and rescue in Nazi-occupied Western Europe by Bob Moore( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survivors is the first examination of how more than half of the Jews in Western Europe survived the Holocaust. The widely differing rates of Jewish mortality have long vexed historians, who have traditionally concentrated on explaining this problem through national studies or by using a comparative approach, concentrating on the role of perpetrators, victims, and circumstances. In contrast, Survivors emphasizes the factors that helped Jews to avoid deportation, either through escape or by going underground. Taken as a whole, it book provides the first comprehensive study of Jewish survival in Western Europe in all its forms. Firstly, the book focuses on the escape routes used by Jews fleeing from the Nazis, and the disparate networks that ran them, including the routes from France into Spain and Switzerland, but also the lesser know history of the escape of Norwegian Jewry and the famous rescue from Denmark in 1943. Few of these networks were exclusively devoted to helping Jews -- in fact, most of them helped all manner of people, including Allied aircrew, escaping Prisoners of War, and political opponents. Moreover, they were not exclusively the product of the Second World War -- as Bob Moore shows, many had linkages with resistance in the First World War, and indeed to opposition to state power stretching back centuries. The second half of the book is devoted to three national case studies (France, Belgium, and the Netherlands) that focus on the interrelationship between Jewish self-help and the individuals and organizations that assisted in hiding them, including the Christian churches. These case studies serve to highlight the very different circumstances and structures pertaining in these three countries and how this had a direct bearing on levels of survival. Separate chapters then deal with the case of child rescue and the motivations of those involved in this most contentious of issues. Finally, the spotlight is turned on cases where Jews were saved, either directly or indirectly, by the Nazis themselves - and on the vexed question of Jews who survived by collaborating with the arrest and deportation of their co-religionists. - Publisher

Refugees from Nazi Germany and the liberal European states by Frank Caestecker( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exodus of refugees from Nazi Germany in the 1930s has received far more attention from historians, social scientists, and demographers than many other migrations and persecutions in Europe. However, as a result of the overwhelming attention that has been given to the Holocaust within the historiography of Europe and the Second World War, the issues surrounding the flight of people from Nazi Germany prior to 1939 have been seen as Vorgeschichte (pre-history) ... Based on a comparative analysis of national case studies, this volume deals with the challenges that the pre-1939 movement of refugees from Germany and Austria posed to the immigration controls in the countries of interwar Europe"--Publisher's description
Refugees from Nazi Germany in the Netherlands, 1933-1940 by Bob Moore( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and Dutch and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dutch government was faced with a refugee influx immediately after the Nazi seizure of power. Examines Dutch refugee policy on the basis of government archives and records of refugee assistance organizations. Emphasizes that decisions made during the 1930s should not be judged in light of the Holocaust. Refugees were seen as economic competitors, and the Jewish community feared an outbreak of antisemitism. Civil servants in charge of policy saw the Netherlands as a transit point and Jews as the responsibility of the Jewish community. Only those in immediate physical danger were admitted as refugees, not Jews fleeing economic and social discrimination. After the Anschluss in Austria, the border was closed and refugees were declared "undesirable aliens." After the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, refugees were turned back, except for a small organized group of 2,000. Illegal entrants who were caught were placed in military-run camps
