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.

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.

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.
The State, Antisemitism, and Collaboration in the Holocaust: The Borderlands of Romania and the Soviet Union
By Diana Dumitru
Based on original sources, this important new book on the Holocaust explores regional variations in civilians’ attitudes and behavior toward the Jewish population in Romania and the occupied Soviet Union. Gentiles’ willingness to assist Jews was greater in lands that had been under Soviet administration during the interwar period, while Gentiles’ willingness to harm Jews occurred more in lands that had been under Romanian administration during the same period. While acknowledging the disasters of Communist rule in the 1920s and 1930s, this work shows the effectiveness of Soviet nationalities policy in the official suppression of antisemitism. This book offers a corrective to the widespread consensus that homogenizes Gentile responses throughout Eastern Europe, instead demonstrating that what states did in the interwar period mattered; relations between social groups were not fixed and destined to repeat themselves, but rather fluid and susceptible to change over time.
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.

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.
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.
