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 Diemut Majer
Translated by Peter Thomas Hill, Edward Vance Humphrey, and Brian Levin
Under the legal and administrative system of Nazi Germany, people categorized as Fremdvölkische literally, “foreign people”) were subject to special laws that restricted their rights, limited their protection under the law, and exposed them to extraordinary legal sanctions and brutal, extralegal police actions.

Also a member of the Auschwitz resistance, Langbein sometimes found himself in a position to influence events, though at his peril.
