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 H. G. Adler
translated by Belinda Cooper
Originally published in German in 1955, and revised in 1960, H. G. Adler’s Theresienstadt 1941–1945 is a foundational work in Holocaust studies. As the first scholarly monograph to describe the particulars of a single camp—the Jewish ghetto in the Czech fortess-city of Terezín—it is the single most detailed and comprehensive account of any concentration camp. Adler, a Theresienstadt survivor, provides a history of that ghetto, a detailed institutional and social analysis of the camp, and his informed understanding of the psychology of the perpetrators and the victims.
By Götz AlyWhen the German Remembrance Foundation established a prize to commemorate the million Jewish children murdered during the Holocaust, it was deliberately named after a victim about whom nothing was known except her age and the date of her deportation: Marion Samuel, an eleven-year-old girl killed in Auschwitz in 1943. 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.
