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.

By Filip MüllerFilip Müller came to Auschwitz with one of the earliest transports from Slovakia in April 1942 and began working in the gassing installations and crematoria in May. He was still alive when the gassings ceased in November 1944. He saw multitudes come and disappear; by sheer luck he survived. Müller is neither a historian nor a psychologist; he is a sourceone of the few prisoners who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell about it.

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.

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.
By Kevin P. SpicerShaken by military defeat and economic depression after War World I, Germans sought to restore their nation’s dignity and power. In this context the National Socialist Party, with its promise of a revivified Germany, drew supporters. Among the most zealous were a number of Catholic clergymen, known as "brown priests," who volunteered as Nazi propagandists.
