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 Filip MüllerFilip Müller came to Auschwitz with one of the earliest transports from Slovakia in April 1942 and began working in the gassing installations and crematoria in May. He was still alive when the gassings ceased in November 1944. He saw multitudes come and disappear; by sheer luck he survived. Müller is neither a historian nor a psychologist; he is a sourceone of the few prisoners who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell about it.
Edited and translated by Susanne Flatauer, Foreword by Yehuda Bauer
Edited by Michael J. Neufeld and Michael Berenbaum
Could the Allies have destroyed the gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944, saving the lives of tens of thousands of Holocaust victims? Could the Allied forces have cut the railway lines leading to Auschwitz, disrupting the transportation of Hungarian Jews to their deaths? Or are these questions just speculative exercises in “what if” history, reflecting mostly our concerns, not those of 1944? For years, these questions have been debated heatedly by historians, ethicists, and military experts (though seldom in the same forum).
By Franz Neumann
With a new introduction by Peter Hayes
Neumann was one of the only early Frankfurt School thinkers to examine seriously the problem of political institutions. After the Nazis’ rise to power, his emphasis shifted to an analysis of economic power, and then after the war to political psychology.
By Solomon Perel

By Christopher J. Probst
Christopher J. Probst demonstrates that a significant number of German theologians and clergy made use of the sixteenth-century writings by Martin Luther on Jews and Judaism to reinforce the racial antisemitism and religious anti-Judaism already present among Protestants.
By Adam Rayski

An organizer of the communist faction of the Jewish resistance in France, Rayski buttresses his analysis of war-era archival materials with his own personal testimony.
By Gerhart M. Riegner
Edited by Joshua Rubenstein and Ilya Altman; Introductions by Joshua Rubenstein, Ilya Altman, and Yitzhak Arad; Translated by Christopher Morris and Joshua Rubenstein
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.
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.
