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 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.

Radu Ioanid’s account, based upon unparalleled access to previously secret East European government archives, is an unprecedented analysis of heretofore purposely hidden materials.

Sixty years after her death, when Götz Aly received the award, he was moved to find out whatever he could about Marion's short life and restore this child to history.
