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.

(Houghton Mifflin 1994) draws on diaries, letters, and underground press reports to examine in depth this best known ghetto uprising.
Edited by Israel Gutman and Michael Berenbaum
Auschwitz, the largest and most lethal of the Nazi death camps, was actually three camps in one—a killing center, a concentration camp, and a series of slave labor camps. More than a million people were murdered at Auschwitz of whom ninety percent were Jews.
By Edited by Patricia Heberer and Jürgen Matthäus; Foreword by Michael R. Marrus
The essays are organized into four sections: the history of war-crime trials from Weimar Germany to just after World War II; the sometimes diverging Allied efforts to come to terms with the Nazi concentration camp system; the ability of postwar society to confront war crimes of the past; and the legacy of war-crime trials in the twenty-first century.

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.
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. The record of the Holocaust in Romania includes many curious chapters of betrayal and support, but they have been largely unavailable until now. Radu Ioanid’s account, based upon unparalleled access to previously secret East European government archives, is an unprecedented analysis of heretofore purposely hidden materials.

By Radu Ioanid
Preface by Elie Wiesel, Introduction by Alexandru Florian
More than 13,000 Jews were murdered during nine days in early summer of 1941 in Iași (Jassy), Romania. This pogrom is one of the most thoroughly documented events of the Holocaust in that German troops, present in the city, were allowed to photograph the atrocities and to send those “souvenirs” of the Eastern Front to their family members. Members of the Romanian Intelligence Service were there also, and they too photographed the continuing massacre. Yet these images are, for the most part, unknown to the general public. Long inaccessible even to scholars, the Romanian archives opened for a time only under pressure from civil society. The 127 photographs shown and described in this album, accompanied by survivors’ and even perpetrators’ testimony, were collected after the war but most of this evidence remained hidden away for decades. Together they are invaluable and provide unique insight into this monstrous crime committed by Romanians under the government of an avowedly antisemitic Nazi-allied Romanian regime.

Edited by Laura Jockusch and Gabriel N. Finder
Translated and edited by Abraham I. Katsh, Foreword by Israel Gutman
Smuggled out of the ghetto and carefully preserved in a kerosene can on a farm outside Warsaw, Chaim Kaplan’s diary, originally recorded in beautiful, disciplined Hebrew script, is a detailed eyewitness report of the Nazi occupation of Warsaw and a unique account of the destruction of the Jewish communities of Poland.
Edited and translated by Jack Kugelmass and Jonathan Boyarin; Geographical Index and Bibliography by Zachary M. Baker
In the years after World War II, Polish Jewish survivors of the Holocaust who had made their way to the Americas and Israel compiled memorial books to preserve the memory of their destroyed communities.
