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 Hermann Langbein
Translated by Harry Zohn, Foreword by Henry Friedlander
Hermann Langbein was allowed to know and see extraordinary things forbidden to other Auschwitz inmates. Interned at Auschwitz in 1942 and classified as a non-Jewish political prisoner, he was assigned as clerk to the chief SS physician of the extermination camp complex, which gave him access to documents, conversations, and actions that would have remained unknown to history were it not for his witness and his subsequent research. Also a member of the Auschwitz resistance, Langbein sometimes found himself in a position to influence events, though at his peril.

(Houghton Mifflin 1994) draws on diaries, letters, and underground press reports to examine in depth this best known ghetto uprising.
Edited by Martin Dean, Constantin Goschler, and Phillip Ther
The robbery and restitution of Jewish property are two inextricably linked social processes. It is not possible to understand the lawsuits and international agreements on the restoration of Jewish property of the late 1990s without examining what was robbed and by whom. In this volume distinguished historians first outline the mechanisms and scope of the European-wide program of plunder, before assessing the effectiveness and historical implications of post-war restitution efforts. Integrating the abundance of new research on the material effects of the Holocaust and its aftermath, a comparative perspective is offered on both robbery and restitution, examining developments in countries such as Germany, Poland, Italy, France, Belgium, Hungary, and the Czech and Slovak lands.

These are the mechanisms by which the Nazis and their allies despoiled Europe’s Jews, revealing in their detail the close relationship between robbery and the Holocaust.

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.
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.
