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.

Edited by Joshua Rubenstein and Ilya Altman; Introductions by Joshua Rubenstein, Ilya Altman, and Yitzhak Arad; Translated by Christopher Morris and Joshua Rubenstein
Distinct from the classic Black Book, which did not include this material, The Unknown Black Book provides, for the first time in English, a revelatory compilation of testimonies from Jews who survived open-air massacres and other atrocities carried out by the Germans and their allies in the occupied Soviet territories during World War II – Ukraine, Belorussia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Crimea. These documents, from residents of cities, small towns, and rural areas, are raw, first-hand accounts by survivors of work camps, ghettos, forced marches, beatings, starvation, and disease. Collected under the sponsored direction of two renowned Soviet Jewish journalists, Ilya Ehrenburg and Vasily Grossman, they tell of Jews who lived in pits, walled-off corners of apartments, attics, and basement dugouts, unable to emerge due to fear that their neighbors would betray them, as often happened.
Edited and with introductions by Joshua Rubenstein and Vladimir P. Naumov, Translated by Laura Esther Wolfson
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.

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.

More than sixty years after the advent of the National Socialist genocides, the question still remains: how could a state-sponsored terror that took the lives of millions of men, women, and children, persecuted as Jews or Gypsies, happen?

Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobibór is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there.
Established in German-occupied Poland, the camp at Sobibór began its dreadful killing operation in May 1942. By October 1943, approximately 167,000 people had been murdered there. Sobibór is not well documented and, were it not for an extraordinary revolt on 14 October 1943, we would know little about it. On that day, prisoners staged a remarkable uprising in which 300 men and women escaped. The author identifies only forty-seven who survived the war.

A History of the Dora Camp: The Story of the Nazi Slave Labor Camp that Secretly Manufactured V-2 Rockets
By André Sellier
Foreword by Michael J. Neufeld, Afterword by Jens-Christian Wagner
In mid-1943 Nazi Germany entered a crisis along the road to its defeat. Faced with a shortage of manpower in armaments factories, the Third Reich sent concentration camp prisoners to work as forced laborers. While the Germans continued their genocide of Jews and Gypsies at Auschwitz and other concentration camps, they also established numerous subcamps throughout Germany. The Dora camp, located in the center of Germany, was one of the most notorious.
Edited by Robert Moses Shapiro and Tadeusz Epsztein; Introduction by Samuel D. Kassow
Retrieved after World War II from metal boxes and milk cans buried beneath the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, the Oyneg Shabes–Ringelblum Archive was clandestinely compiled between 1940 and 1943 under the leadership of historian Emanuel Ringelblum.
Edited by R. Clifton Spargo and Robert M. Ehrenreich
