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 Israel Gutman and Michael BerenbaumAuschwitz, the largest and most lethal of the Nazi death camps, was actually three camps in one—a killing center, a concentration camp, and a series of slave labor camps.

A principal goal of the Museum since its inception has been to make available for research in the United States a broad-based archive of Holocaust source materials. Guiding access to the multi-million-page archival holdings and other textual records of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, this reference work makes available for the first time collection-by-collection descriptions of the Museum’s rich and growing holdings.
By Jean Améry
Translated by Sidney Rosenfeld and Stella P. Rosenfeld, Afterword by Sidney Rosenfeld
At the Mind’s Limits is the story of one man’s incredible struggle to understand the reality of horror. In five autobiographical essays Améry describes his survival—mental, moral, and physical—through the enormity of the Holocaust.
Edited by Patricia Heberer and Jürgen Matthäus; Foreword by Michael R. MarrusThe essays are organized into four sections: the history of war-crime trials from Weimar Germany to just after World War II; the sometimes diverging Allied efforts to come to terms with the Nazi concentration camp system; the ability of postwar society to confront war crimes of the past; and the legacy of war-crime trials in the twenty-first century.
By Franz Neumann
With a new introduction by Peter Hayes
Neumann was one of the only early Frankfurt School thinkers to examine seriously the problem of political institutions. After the Nazis’ rise to power, his emphasis shifted to an analysis of economic power, and then after the war to political psychology.

Translated by Dagmar G. Grimm
Refusing to swear allegiance to the state or to perform military service or war work of any sort under the Third Reich, Jehovah’s Witnesses received the attention of the highest authorities in the justice system, the police, and the SS.
Edited by Michael J. Neufeld and Michael BerenbaumCould 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).
