The Center publishes a variety of multidisciplinary monographs relating to Holocaust and genocide studies. Many of these publications seek to fill gaps in the scholarly literature. Center monographs emphasize topics not previously treated by a major study or for which newly available information is likely to revise common misunderstandings or make possible new scholarly interpretations. These may include works by visiting scholars and work that is closely linked to the Museum’s own research collections.

Inspired by the conference “Deaf People in Hitler’s Europe, 1933–1945” hosted jointly by Gallaudet University and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 1998, this extraordinary collection integrates key presentations and postconference research as renowned scholars shed new light on the ideological and practical concerns that linked the theories of race and of eugenics to the sterilization and murder of persons whom the Nazis deemed “unworthy of life.” Deaf survivors attended and addressed the conference, providing wrenching testimonies that inspired, in part, the publication of this volume.

In the spring and summer of 1952, fifteen Soviet Jews, including five prominent Yiddish writers and poets, were secretly tried and convicted; multiple executions soon followed in the basement of Moscow’s Lubyanka prison. The defendants were falsely charged with treason and espionage because of their involvement in the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee and because of their heartfelt response as Jews to Nazi atrocities in occupied Soviet territory.

Introduction by Raul Hilberg
‘Sigmund Stein’ (whose real identity is revealed for the first time in this edition) was a prominent lawyer in the town of ‘Hochburg’ (Marburg) – a Jew, yes, but a German with deep roots in rural Germany. When fellow Jews urged Stein to leave Germany in the 1930s and after, he refused, arguing that he could best serve his people by acting as a buffer between the Jewish community and the Nazis. From 1933 to 1944 he was methodically stripped of his rights as a citizen and of his dignity as a human being. The torment of his Jewish heritage and his proud German upbringing – the loyalties of a lifetime – was finally resolved in Auschwitz.
By Mihail Sebastian
Translated by Patrick Camiller, Introduction and notes by Radu Ioanid
Mihail Sebastian’s remarkable diary of the fascist years in Romania, written half a century ago, was at last published only recently, and is here translated into English for the first time.

Could the Allies have destroyed the gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944, saving the lives of tens of thousands of Holocaust victims? Could the Allied forces have cut the railway lines leading to Auschwitz, disrupting the transportation of Hungarian Jews to their deaths? Or are these questions just speculative exercises in “what if” history, reflecting mostly our concerns, not those of 1944? For years, these questions have been debated heatedly by historians, ethicists, and military experts (though seldom in the same forum).
By Randolph L. BrahamThe Politics of Genocide: The Holocaust in Hungary, Condensed Edition is an abbreviated version of this classic work first published in 1981 and revised and expanded in 1994. It includes a new historical overview, and retains and sharpens its focus on the persecution of the Jews.
By Radu IoanidIn 1930, 757,000 Jews lived in Romania. They constituted the third-largest Jewish community in Europe. Today not more than 14,000 Jews live in Romania, most of them elderly. The record of the Holocaust in Romania includes many curious chapters of betrayal and support, but they have been largely unavailable until now. Radu Ioanid’s account, based upon unparalleled access to previously secret East European government archives, is an unprecedented analysis of heretofore purposely hidden materials.
Foreword by Elie Wiesel
By Alexander DonatIn The Holocaust Kingdom the concerns were primal: the survival of one’s self, wife, and child. Yet this unique and unflinching memoir of a Polish-Jewish family that survived the Warsaw ghetto as well as concentration and death camps reaches beyond the personal experience of those years to capture the story of doomed millions.
