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 and with a foreword by Bob Moore
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.
By Susan D. BachrachThe United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. is dedicated to the memory of the millions of people who were persecuted and murdered by Nazi Germany and its supporters between 1933 and 1945.

This contemporaneous account of the privileged perspectives of trusted Truman-appointee James G. McDonald reveals how closely today’s and tomorrow’s headlined struggles between Israelis and Arabs are a legacy of little-known public and unknown confidential events of the years 1945–47.

Distinct from the classic Black Book, which did not include this material, The Unknown Black Book provides, for the first time in English, a revelatory compilation of testimonies from Jews who survived open-air massacres and other atrocities carried out by the Germans and their allies in the occupied Soviet territories during World War II – Ukraine, Belorussia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Crimea. These documents, from residents of cities, small towns, and rural areas, are raw, first-hand accounts by survivors of work camps, ghettos, forced marches, beatings, starvation, and disease. Collected under the sponsored direction of two renowned Soviet Jewish journalists, Ilya Ehrenburg and Vasily Grossman, they tell of Jews who lived in pits, walled-off corners of apartments, attics, and basement dugouts, unable to emerge due to fear that their neighbors would betray them, as often happened.

Adam Czerniakow was a Polish Jew who killed himself on July 23, 1942—on the face of it not an uncommon occurrence in those times. But there is more to this story, much more than the tragic death of one man among so many millions. More, because Adam Czerniakow was for nearly three years the chairman of the Warsaw Judenrat—a Jew, devoted to his people, who served as the Nazi-sponsored “mayor” of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Edited by Robert Moses Shapiro and Tadeusz Epsztein; Introduction by Samuel D. Kassow
Retrieved after World War II from metal boxes and milk cans buried beneath the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, the Oyneg Shabes–Ringelblum Archive was clandestinely compiled between 1940 and 1943 under the leadership of historian Emanuel Ringelblum.
By Per AngerThe first-hand testimony of an important participant, this is the privileged account of the heroic activities of Raoul Wallenberg, the young Swedish diplomat who saved tens of thousands of Budapest's Jews in the closing days of World War II — and who then disappeared behind Soviet lines, never to be heard from again.

The World Must Know: The History of the Holocaust as Told in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
