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.
