Original Cloth. 8vo. X, 338 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Edited by Randolph L. Braham. “This volume is the twenty-sixth in the Holocaust Studies Series sponsored by the Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. It contains ten seminal studies the catastrophe that befell the Jews of Europe during the Nazi era. It also reprints two historically crucial documents relating to the so-called Hungarian Gold Train, a freight train that, in 1944, carried stolen or confiscated Jewish valuables from Hungary. Essays recount the unfolding of the Holocaust in Hungary and the history of the Jews in Europe. They detail the elimination of Jews in Greece, particularly from the large Sephardic community of Salonika, and describe the rescue of Jews in Albania. Nonhistorical essays concern autobiographical narratives in which survivors and their descendents reflect on the return to former shtetls in East Central Europe and the attitudes of victims toward the perpetrators of Holocaust crimes. Taken altogether, this volume formulates a more complete understanding of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe. Contents: The Christian churches of Hungary and the holocaust: an overview / Randolph L. Braham; The Shoah in Salonika / Steven B. Bowman; The Jews of Albania: a story of survival / Sami Repishti; The Holocaust in Hungary: a lecture in honor of Randolph Braham / Istavan Deak; Rescue operations in northern Transylvania / Randolph L.

"A longtime professor at the City University of New York, where he founded the Graduate Center's Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies and taught for more than three decades at City College in Manhattan, [author] Dr. Braham wrote more than 60 books and hundreds of articles, including many works on comparative politics and the Soviet Union. He was best known for his 1,600-page, two-volume book ‘The Politics of Genocide: The Holocaust in Hungary,' described by New York Times reviewer Elenore Lester as one of ‘the most important works of Holocaust history.'"(The Washington Post) "Professor Braham was outraged at the time by what he described as attempts by Hungary's current nationalist government to equate the murder of nearly 600,000 Jews in Hungary with the suffering of other Hungarians under the German occupation — ‘a German occupation, as the record clearly shows, that was not only unopposed but generally applauded' by the country's wartime regime, he wrote. In response he publicly returned the Order of Merit he had received for his research in 2011. He also asked that his name be removed from the Library and Information Center of the Holocaust Memorial Center, or Holokauszt Emlekkozpont, in Budapest, the country's capital." (NYTimes).

This work has been identified as a monumental, definitive account of the tragedy that befell Hungarian Jewry during the Nazi era. It is widely recognized as a major contribution to the understanding of the many complex factors that led to the Holocaust in Hungary. The Politics of Genocide explains in a rational context the historical, political, communal, and socioeconomic factors that contributed to the unfolding of this tragedy in both Jewish and world history. In the best tradition of political science, the Holocaust in Hungary is described and analyzed in the context of Hungarian and world history and international politics. Randolph Braham's two-volume The Politics of Genocide: The Holocaust in Hungary won the 1981 Jewish National Book Award (USA) , and earned him citations in the New York State Assembly (1981) and the Congressional Record (1981, 1994, 2004) .

Contains extensive photographs and maps in both color and black and white. “The Holocaust Chronicle, written and fact-checked by top scholars, recounts the long, complex, anguishing story of the most terrible crime of the 20th century. A massive, oversized hardcover of more than 750 pages, The Holocaust Chronicle: A History in Words and Pictures is an excitingly unique, not for-profit endeavor that is a personal project of the publisher, Louis Weber, C. E. O. Of Chicago-based Publications International, Ltd. ‘As a book publisher, I am in a unique position to create this ambitious project, ’ Weber says. The son of Polish Jews who settled in America in the 1920s, Weber conceived The Holocaust Chronicle in order to give something back to the Jewish community, and to bring the truth of the Holocaust to as many people as possible. The mission of The Holocaust Chronicle is to report the facts, clearly and free of bias or agenda. Featured are more than 2000 photographs selected after intensive research in the collections of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D. C. And Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, as well as other archives and private collections located around the world. Many of these images are in full color and most are published in book form for the first time. The photographs chronicle the Holocaust in starkly visual terms, capturing victims and perpetrators alike, as well as Allied leaders and the multitude of peripheral figures. Caption-text is detailed, and rich with facts and human interest. The books 3000-item timeline of Holocaust-related events is unprecedented in its scope and ambition. Spanning the years 1000 B. C. To 1999 A. D. , the timeline pinpoints deportations, atrocities, and important developments in the Nazis Final Solution, as well as individual acts of cruelty, compassion, and heroic Jewish resistance. Illustrated chapter-opener essays place the most important years of the Holocaust and its immediate aftermath, 1933-1946, into sharp perspective. Nearly 300 sidebars detail significant people, places, issues, and events. More than 30 full-color, specially commissioned maps show the reader where events took place. The sentiments and hatreds that gave rise to the Holocaust were not confined to the 12 years of Adolf Hitlers Thousand-Year Reich. The books illustrated prologue surveys the antisemitism that was expressed over many centuries in Europe as bloody pogroms, exclusionary laws, and other persecution. The illustrated epilogue documents the long, painful healing process that has lasted for generations and may never be completed. ” (Publisher’s description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Chronology.

Publishers description: “The Holocaust was not a major issue in the thirteen Nuremberg trials conducted in Germany between 1945-1949 by the International Military Tribunal. Can the word “justice” be used to refer to trials that did not fully recognize the centrality of the Holocaust? What was the background of the postwar war crimes trials, and what was their impact on society and collective memory? How did they shape international law? This book brings together observations on these and other issues from a broad range of international scholars on the representation of the Holocaust in the postwar trials and its historiography.

Hardback. 8vo. XIII, 183 pages. 22 cm. First edition. “The Double Binds of Ethics after the Holocaust sheds new light on the ethical repercussions of the Nazi genocide against the Jews. Contributors focus on two key dilemmas: first, that the Holocaust did immense harm to ethics by undermining confidence in beliefs about the fundamental status of ethical values, including human rights. Second, the Holocaust and subsequent genocides have destroyed confidence that human beings will fulfill their moral obligations better ‘next time. ’ Responding to these double binds, the contributors to this book explore what can be done in ethical theory and practice to respond effectively to the impact of the Holocaust and genocide. Its chapters not only assess the weakness of ethics in standing firmly and effectively against human-made destruction but also indicate steps of salvage and retrieval that need to be taken if ethics is to be a significant presence in a world still besieged by genocide and atrocity. “ (Publishers description) Contents: Part 1: Engaging the Double Binds: 'Double Binds: Ethics after Auschwitz'; J.

Publishers cloth. 8vo. XIX, 216 pages. 24 cm. First edition. “Winner of the 1991 National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism. This important and original book is the first sustained analysis of the unique ways in which oral testimony of survivors contributes to our understanding of the Holocaust. It also sheds light on the forms and functions of memory as victims relive devastating experiences of pain, humiliation, and loss. Drawing on the Fortunoff Video Archives for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University, Lawrence L. Langer shows how oral Holocaust testimonies complement historical studies by enabling us to confront the human dimensions of the catastrophe. Quoting extensively from these interviews, Langer develops a technique for interpreting them as we might a written text. He contrasts written and oral narratives, noting that while survivor memoirs by authors such as Primo Levi and Charlotte Delbo transform reality through style, imagery, chronology, or a coherent moral vision, oral testimonies resist these organizing impulses and allow instead a kind of unshielded truth to emerge, just as powerful in its impact as the visions taking shape in written memoirs. He argues that it is necessary to deromanticize the survival experience and that to burden it with accolades about the “indomitable human spirit” is to slight its painful complexity and ambivalence. Finally he explores the perplexing task of establishing a meaningful connection between consequential living and inconsequential dying, between moral striving and the sprit of anguish and sense of a diminished self that pervades these haunting Holocaust testimonies. ” (Publishers description) .

Original Wrappers. 8vo. Vi, 49 pages. 22 cm. First edition. Six color graphs describing survey data relating to public opinion and knowledge about the Holocaust. An essay by James Young concerning popular opinion and knowledge of the Holocaust based on the findings of a series of surveys by The American Jewish Committee starting in 1992 and continuing after the publication of this essay. The topics contained within the survey questions include Holocaust literature, specific Holocaust history and Holocaust Memorial sites. “James E. Young is Professor of English and Judaic Studies, and Chair, Judaic Studies Department, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. ” (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, ushmm.org) “Young's scholarly work focuses on historical memory and memorialization, and in particular the aesthetics and politics of Holocaust memorials, on which he is a recognized authority. Young's insight that ‘the motives of memory are never pure’ informs his examination of the ways in which contemporary political commitments and exigencies shape what is remembered and how it is memorialized, and how a memorial may become part of a reductive political mythology. He proposes that the ‘countermonument’ – a work of art that interrogates and undermines intended, official meaning – is the best guarantor that viewers will experience a more genuine sense of historical memory not entirely mediated by a heroic or redemptive national narrative. ” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Holocaust Memorials.

The particular nature of the transformation depends on people’s historical perspectives and how they position themselves and their nation or community vis-à-vis the tragedy. Understandably, European Muslims perceive the Holocaust as less central to their history than do other Europeans. Yet while the acknowledgement and commemoration of the horrors of the Holocaust are increasingly important in Europe, Holocaust denial and biased views on the Holocaust are widespread in European Muslims’ countries of origin. In this book, a number of distinguished scholars and educators of various backgrounds discuss views of the Holocaust. Problematic views are often influenced by a persistent attitude of Holocaust denial which is derived, in part, from discourses in the Muslim communities in their countries of origin. The essays collected here explore the backgrounds of these perceptions and highlight positive approaches and developments. Many of the contributions were written by people working in the field and reflecting on their experiences. This collection also reveals that problematic views of the Holocaust are not limited to Muslim communities. ” Publishers Description.

The Jews did not confine their demands merely to emigration; they connected them with the complex questions of Jewish national homelessness. Their demand was not limited to socio-economic assistance; they wanted a deeper look into the causes which had decimated the Jewish people to a degree and in a manner never before experienced by any other people in the world. In short, they did not present the international community with another refugee problem, or a Jewish Displaced Persons problem, but rather with the problem of the security of the entire Jewish people as revealed by the Holocaust. They sought a national-historical meaning for the Jewish fate during this period- and they found it in the struggle for the establishment of the State of Israel. ” SUBJECT (S) : World War, 1939-1945 -- Concentration camps -- Liberation.

1st separate edition, original wrappers, 8vo. 13 pages. Reprint from the Israel law review, vol. 7, no. 1, January 1972. The author, Jacob Robinson (1889–1977) , was a “jurist, politician, diplomat, and Holocaust researcher…. After official Jewish representation was prohibited in Lithuania in 1927, Robinson organized an informal, ‘secret’ group to defend Jewish interests. With the outbreak of World War II and the incorporation of Vilna into Lithuania, this committee played a leading role in receiving Jewish refugees from Poland and integrating Vilna’s Jewish population into Lithuania. Robinson left Lithuania in May 1940 and reached the United States with his family in December of that year. In February 1941, he founded the Institute of Jewish Affairs (IJA) , the research arm of the American and World Jewish Congress, which he directed until 1947. The IJA’s main topics of research were the fate of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe; the question of reparation and indemnification; the legal basis for prosecuting Nazi criminals; and the promotion of the concept of human rights as a means for defending the rights of Jews. In 1945, Robinson advised U. S. Chief Prosecutor Robert H. Jackson in Nuremberg and codrafted the ‘Jewish case’ presented to the International Military Tribunal. In 1946, he counseled chief prosecutor Telford Taylor on the Flick Case in Nuremberg. That same year, Robinson worked for the United Nations as an expert consultant to the team creating and establishing the Commission of Human Rights. In 1947 Robinson became legal adviser to the Jewish Agency at the UN and from 1948 to 1957 he was legal counsel to Israel’s delegation. Thanks to his previous experience, Robinson was instrumental in developing the Israeli diplomatic service. In 1952, he drafted the reparations agreement between Israel and the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) . His brother Nehemiah (1898–1964) was also a brilliant lawyer. He was Jacob’s close partner and successor as director of the IJA, and drafted the agreements between the FRG and the Claims Conference as well as the FRG’s Indemnification Law. In 1957, Robinson became the legal adviser for the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, helped establish the research branch of Yad Vashem, and coordinated Holocaust research between several research Institutes (among them YIVO, Yad Vashem, Leo Baeck Institute, Wiener Library, and the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine) . Robinson also coordinated the collaboration of these and other Jewish institutions with the prosecution in trials against Nazi criminals. He was also the legal mind behind the prosecution at the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem (1960–1961) , serving as special assistant to the attorney general. Robinson edited the Holocaust section for the Encyclopedia Judaica (1971) and several volumes of documentary sources of the Holocaust. He also published several important bibliographic works on international law” (YIVO, 2018) . SUBJECT(S) : Nuremberg Trial of Major German War Criminals, Nuremberg, Germany, 1945-1946.

Original stiff wrappers . 8vo. 184 pages. 22 cm. First edition. This memoir relates the wartime experiences of Jewish partisan Doctor Michael Temchin. “Dr. Temchin, nicknamed 'Znachor' (Witch Doctor) was at first the commander of the partisan unit of A. L. (Armja Ludowa) , the leftist underground organization in Poland, and after became chief of the medical services of the partisans. The partisan unit under the leadership of Dr. Temchin consisted of Jews and non-Jews, and was active in the area of Krasznik (Lublin district) . The Jewish and Polish partisans planned to rescue Jews in the ghetto of Krasznik before they were taken onto the crematoria, and waited for a sign from the ghetto to start the attack on the little town and liberate the Jews. The ghetto representatives kept postponing their decision to act. The partisans warned them that it might soon be too late, but the inhabitants of the ghetto were in no hurry to call for help from the partisans. A possible reason for their reluctance may have been the fact that they knew of the mass murders of Jews in the partisan units, carried out by Polish fascist groups, living in the woods. Of course the partisans did not want to attack without the consent of those helpless Jews living within the walls. The entire ghetto was wiped out in one night, and only a few succeeded in escaping to the partisans. ” (In the book The Jewish Partisans; Part 2, page 210) “Among the most famous Polish partisans was Major 'Znachor' (Dr. Michael Temchin) . General Rola-Zhimierski, the commander of the A. L. Declared at a meeting of the Polish National Assembly on the 2nd of January 1946: ‘Jewish soldiers fought against the occupation forces with much devotion and courage. They were valiant fighters and very often great heroes; ’ and in his letter to the Organization of Jewish Partisans (F. P. O. ) , the general wrote: ‘Among the Jews who remained alive there were thousands who went into the woods to fight with arms, and fought together with their Polish partisan comrades against the common enemy. ” (M.

The poignant photographs are accompanied by passages from personal diaries and accounts of daily life in the ghetto. Jost kept the photographs private until the early 1980’s, shortly before his death. They weren’t published or shown publicly until this exhibition by Yad Vashem and the Smithsonian Institute in 1988. Although Jost’s intention in documenting the horrors of ghetto life were never made explicit, his sentiments are related in the beginning of the booklet. “I had invited some comrades to a birthday supper me [sic] that evening. I don’t want to say how I felt during the meal. I lost my appetite. In my letters home I didn’t say anything about what I’d seen. I didn’t want to upset my family. I thought, ‘What sort of world is this? ’ I didn’t tell my army comrades anything either. Later on, too, when they burnt down the Ghetto, we didn’t pay any attention. ” (Page [5]) .

Inscribed by author Helen Mitsios. “Photo Album” appendix contains black and white photographs and reproductions of documents. “Filled with insight and humor, this dual memoir by Rasia, born in Vilnius, Lithuania (who survived the Holocaust on a false identity) , and her daughter Helen, born in Montreal, Canada, examines the long-term implications of being a survivor of the Holocaust and the unique pressures and anxieties the children of survivors inherit from their parents. Rasia, determined to protect Helen from anti-Semitism, continues to pose as a Christian and raises her daughter in the Catholic faith, forbidding her from mentioning her Jewish identity. This compassionate memoir addresses the unspoken tension that complicated a mother-daughter relationship, follows Helen on her journey to embrace Judaism, and is a heart-stopping story of escape and survival from Nazi terror. ” (Publisher’s description) .

Publishers cloth. 4to. 135 pages. 27 cm. First edition. “Rabbi Bezalel Naor, well known lecturer and author, has published a unique contribution to Holocaust studies. The book, entitled "Kabbalah and the Holocaust, " deals specifically with Kabbalistic responses to the Shoah. Based both on interviews with survivors and historic research, the author records how Kabbalists of various communities fell back on their respective mystic traditions to avert the evil decree. In this book, Rabbi Naor performs a twofold service, tracing the historic development of different schools within Kabbalah, and telling how representatives of those schools used the weapons within their spiritual armamentum to combat the enemy. Thus, the reader gains perspective on the Lithuanian Mitnagdic school of the Vilna Gaon, the Galician-Hungarian-Rumanian Hasidic dynasty of Nadborna, the Balkan (Bulgaria, Greece and Yugoslavia) Sephardic school, the Polish Hasidic tradition of Pshyscha (Kotzk-Izbica-Lublin-Radzyn) , and the Yemenite approach. The book is essential to Holocaust studies for yet another reason. It corrects a certain ethnocentric distortion by showing that the conflagration affected Sephardic Jews and came close to engulfing Yemenite Jewry. Discussed are topics such as: meditation; reincarnation; Divine communication; free will vs. Predestination; good and evil and beyond; automatic speech; and Semitic and Japhetic civilizations. Rabbi Bezalel Naor has been a student of Kabbalah for many years, and has published numerous scholarly articles and books in the field, including recently the revised version of the Vilna Gaon's commentary to Sifra di-Zeni'uta from a manuscript in the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. Kabbalah and the Holocaust is a handsome folio volume, cloth hardcover with black endpapers. The dust jacket has white embossed lettering on a stark black background and is visually stunning. ” (Review by Michael Skakun in the March 15th 2002 weekly “Jewish Press”) .

Presented March 17, 2004. “In the decade and a half following the end of World War II, that global conflagration which brought about the death of one-third of the Jewish people and the destruction of much of European Jewish communal life, American Jewry found many times, places, and modes of expression to articulate its intense reactions to that calamity. While historians may find it difficult, if not nearly impossible, to recreate the ways in which individual Jews talked about this catastrophic event in their homes or how they incorporated direct references and analogies to it into the discourse of their private spheres of everyday life, Jewish institutions – synagogues, schools, summer camps, publishing houses, magazines and newspapers – left an easily recoverable paper trail that reveals a community that felt itself obliged to remember and commemorate. These formal institutions of American Jewish life, spanning a spectrum of ideologies and political positions vis-à-vis the concerns of the day, wove the details of the catastrophe into their rhetorical repertoires and used references to it to shape their political projects. ” (Page 1) .

Publishers Boards. 8vo. 118pages. 24cm. First edition. Using modern social theory, David Brenner examines how German-Jewish identity was influenced by the production and consumption of popular culture. Part of the “Routledge Jewish Studies Series. ” “David A. Brenner examines how Jews in Central Europe developed one of the first ‘ethnic’ or ‘minority’ cultures in modernity. Not exclusively ‘German’ or ‘Jewish, ’ the experiences of German-speaking Jewry in the decades prior to the Third Reich and the Holocaust were also negotiated in encounters with popular culture, particularly the novel, the drama and mass media. Despite recent scholarship, the misconception persists that Jewish Germans were bent on assimilation. Although subject to compulsion, they did not become solely ‘German, ’ much less ‘European. ’ Yet their behavior and values were by no means exclusively ‘Jewish, ’ as the Nazis or other anti-Semites would have it. Rather, the German Jews achieved a peculiar synthesis between 1890 and 1933, developing a culture that was not only ‘middle-class’ but also ‘ethnic. ’ In particular, they reinvented Judaic traditions by way of a hybridized culture. Based on research in German, Israeli and American archives, German-Jewish Popular Culture before the Holocaust addresses many of the genres in which a specifically German-Jewish identity was performed, from the Yiddish theatre and Zionist humour all the way to sensationalist memoirs and Kafka’s own kitsch. This middle-class ethnic identity encompassed and went beyond religious confession and identity politics. In focusing principally on German-Jewish popular culture, this groundbreaking book introduces the beginnings of ‘ethnicity’ as we know it and live it today. ” (Publisher’s description. ) Subjects: Jews in popular culture -- Germany -- History -- 20th century.

Previously a Nazi concentration camp, the Landsberg Displaced Persons camp was initially commanded by Irving Heymont. The camp was an important center of Zionist support and was headquarters to the first ORT rehabilitation program. The camp closed in 1950. “’The camp is filthy beyond description. Sanitation is virtually unknown. Words fail me when I try to think of an adequate description... The people of the camp themselves appear demoralized beyond hope of rehabilitation. They appear to be beaten both spiritually and physically, with no hopes or incentives for the future...’ These words were written in September, 1945 by Col. Irving Heymont to his wife Joan, describing the conditions at the Landsberg Displaced Persons Camp, the largest DP camp in Europe. At the young age of 27, he was tasked with serving as its commander, providing the survivors with the opportunity to regain their dignity and self-determination. Many years later, Heymont concluded that ‘the few months I spent at Landsberg had a greater impact on my outlook on life than any other experience in my career. ’ He learned that ‘despite the deepest inhumanity suffered, the spirit of a people to survive and recover cannot be crushed. ’" (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, ushmm.org) Subjects: Holocaust survivors -- Germany -- Landsberg am Lech.

Volume 1 of the New History of Russia Series. “The Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee was an organization created by the Soviet authorities as a tool of Soviet war propaganda. However, the committee gradually assumed a Jewish identity and served as a focus for Jewish problems and concerns. Soviet Government, Party and Security began to view the committee with suspicion. Increasing conservatism and anti-Jewish policy rendered the existence of this "Jewish" organization precarious. War, Holocaust and Stalinism presents a documented history of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in the Soviet Union during the Second World War, the Holocaust and the immediate post-war years to the end of 1948. It centers upon the tragic fate of Soviet Jewry under both Hitler and Stalin during this most significant period in Jewish history. This is the first publication of documents from the newly opening Russian archives, primarily from the Russian State Archive and the former Archive of the Communist Party. Using previously unpublished material, this volume offers a new insight into Soviet and Stalinist policies towards Jews and the JAFC and the decision making processes involved. ” (Publisher’s Description.

Softbound. 8vo. VII, 106 pages. 22 cm. First edition. This publication gives a brief history of Jews in Albania with an emphasis on their exodus in 1991; it emphasizes the widely unknown exceptional situation of Jews in Albania during the Second World War, in that not a single Jew was taken to any of the Nazi concentration camps. This accounts for the extraordinary fact that by War's end there were more Jews in Albania than before, due to an influx of Jews fleeing from other countries, not only Yugoslavia and Greece, but also from further afield such as Germany and Austria. Central to Sarner's history is Josef Jakoel (1922-91) , spiritual head of the Jewish community in Albania, whose perseverance in his faith managed to prevent the very small Jewish community in Albania from completely losing touch with their roots and with each other although travel even within Albania during the Communist period was extremely limited, and the few Jews were scattered between Tirana, Durres, Vlora and Shkodra. A second important theme of Sarner's account is the story of Albania's "Righteous" (those non-Jews identified and honored by Yad Vashem as people who risked their lives to rescue Jews during the Holocaust) . Sarner gives details of some of these people and families (Moslems and Christians) who housed and hid Jews, some for years; he remarks on the extraordinary generosity of those hosts, their refusal to accept recompense and their ungrudging giving even in situations of extreme danger. Not only were Jews offered hospitality by individuals and families; the Albanian government also heeded the code of honor for guests and refused to obey the command of the Italian occupies to expel all foreign Jews, and even provided a small stipend for needy refugee families.

Unlike many pictorial and documentary treatments of the Holocaust, it is not a compendium of terrifying photographs of death camp horrors or of secret documents culled from the Nazi archives. Rather, it is a collection of public materials – materials seen and read by the man in the street in Germany, throughout occupied Europe, and all over the world; and expressly designed by the Nazi propaganda machine and its non-German collaborators to prepare public opinion to accept Julius Streicher’s slogan that “the Jew must disappear. ” As demonstrated by the reproductions gathered in this volume, this vile message was transmitted through movies, theatrical productions, exhibitions, wall posters, pamphlets newspapers, magazines, and all other public-information media. Tens of millions of people were exposed to this message day after day, and surely one imagines, they must have known about the fate of the Jews. It is hoped that this volume will serve as a reminder to the civilized world that genocide does not occur overnight. ” (Dust jacket) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) --Pictorial works.

They tell what happened to the author and his fellow Jews who, barehanded, overcame armed SS troops or literally crawled out of the mass grave dug for them, escaped to the woods and resisted the enemy in his attempt to destroy the remainder of the Jewish people. Included is the gripping account of a peasant who risks his life to hide Jews; the tracking down and public execution of an informer virtually under the eyes of the German garrison; and a heart-warming love story about two orphans who join the partisans and ultimately begin a new life together in Israel. ” (Dustjacket description) The author, Isaac Aron, was born near Vilna, was Hebrew principal in Krashnik before the occupation; he successfully escaped the ghetto of Miory when it was liquidated and formed a partisan group, he began writing poetry in the Ghetto, and after four years in DP camps, emigrated to Brooklyn; this is his first published volume in English.

OCLC lists 23 copies worldwide. Reviewed below by Randolph L. Braham: "In historical terms, the Jewish communities of Heves County were relatively short-lived. As was the case of their counterparts in virtually all other provinces of Hungary, most of these communities lasted just a little over one hundred years. While some of the settlements were established toward the end of the eighteenth century, most came into being only during the nineteenth century. The Jews were originally encouraged to settle on the estates of the feudal landlords, who were eager to see them engage in trade and commerce - economic pursuits the landed aristocracy found demeaning and the basically illiterate peasantry was not qualified to fill. By 1840, the number of Jews living in the county was 1, 953; it reached a peak of 10, 928 in 1880. During the decades that followed, the size of the county's Jewish population gradually declined, and by the time of the anti-Semitic drive of the 1940s was only a little over 7, 000.The many historical, political, and socioeconomic factors determining the rise and fall of the Jewish communities in the county, including, among others those of Eger, Gyöngyös, Hatvan, Heves, and Tiszafüred, are described and analyzed in this well documented work by Dr. Ágnes Szegö Orbán, head of the public library of Tiszafüred. The author of A tiszafüredi zsidóság törtenete és demográfiája, Orban skillfully exploits the archival resources of the county to document the evolution of the communities, differentiating between the various phases of Hungary’s national history. Using the tools of the social sciences, she highlights the social structure and the religious and welfare organizations of the communities, identifies the branches of trade, commerce and industry in which Jews played a pioneering role, and documents the increasingly difficult political climate in which the communities struggled to survive, especially after the end of World War I. As elsewhere in truncated Hungary, the anti-Jewish drive in Heves County intensified in 1938, following the adoption of the First Anti-Jewish Law. This was followed in rapid succession by many increasingly more ominous anti-Semitic acts, culminating in the tragedy that engulfed all of the Jews of Hungary after the German occupation of March 19, 1944. The last section of the book is devoted to the Holocaust era. It succinctly describes the measures that were enacted by the central and local authorities, including the humiliation, isolation, and expropriation of the Jews. It also reveals the horrible conditions that prevailed in the various ghettos, including those of Eger, Gyöngyös, Hatvan, Szúcsi-Bagólyuk, and Tiszafüred, and documents the inhumane conditions under which the Hungarian instruments of state power – the civil service, the police and gendarmerie -- carried out the deportations. The attempt to reestablish some of the communities after the war was basically unsuccessful. It was doomed to failure from the beginning. For one thing, only a pitiful number of the relatively few survivors were eager to establish new roots in the towns and villages from which their loved ones had been so brutally deported to Auschwitz. Some of the survivors decided to relocate in the larger cities that – for a while at least -- still had viable Jewish communities; others decided to emigrate at the first opportunity. Moreover, the policies of the Soviet-supported Communist regime that came to power shortly after the war discouraged the nurturing of traditional Jewish values or the reinvigoration of religious communities. ” Fine condition.

The Jews of America must, with increasing generosity and self-sacrifice, contribute of their means for the maintenance of the overseas program of relief. Our suffering brethren in war torn Europe will continue to hope against hope, if our thoughts, our prayers and our united efforts will be with them and for them. The religious forces in America should champion legislation for the suspension of all restrictive legislation to make possible the immediate admission of children from Europe for the duration of the war. Millions of Americans will eagerly offer the hospitality of their homes for these unfortunates. The arrival of a huge expeditionary army of little ones to these shores will immediately fortify our spirit and will generate in us a spirit of selflessness and sacrifice which will enable us to face the future with courage and confidence. ” (page 8) Not listed on OCLC or anywhere else online.

Publishers cloth. 8vo. XIV, 218 pages. 24 cm. Publishers description: “On September 27, 1939, less than four weeks after the Nazi invasion, Poland ceased to exist as a nation. Only three weeks had passed since ten-year-old Hanna Davidson had said goodbye to her father, Simon, and older brother, Kazik, who had been drafted and sent to defend Warsaw. Now she believed she would never see them again. Hanna and her mother, Sophia, an artist and intellectual, found themselves subjected to Hitler’s efforts to dehumanize Poland’s Jewish population. There seemed no choice but to cling to what shreds of stability they could by submitting to a ruthless tyranny. But when they got word that Simon and Kazik were alive in Bialystok in the Soviet-occupied zone of Poland, Hanna and her mother made a fearful decision—they would risk a harrowing escape from Nazi Poland into relatively safer Soviet territory. After a few hasty good-byes to family and with only the clothes on their backs, they left their apartment—just one hour before soldiers would come for Sophia. If the two-percent chance of surviving the crossing were not daunting enough, then the Davidsons’ prospects in the Soviet Union should have been. For Simon Davidson’s past as a prominent businessman (and capitalist) and political activism in the socialist Bund (an organization banned by the communists) branded him as undesirable. Moreover, he had been born in Russia—escaping years before by fooling Soviet authorities into presuming him dead—and his presence could place those members of his family who remained behind in danger. So for the sake of their very lives—and those of relatives they could never publicly acknowledge—the Davidsons would be compelled to invent and memorize not only their own new identities but also an extended family history. Moreover, avoiding persecution by the Soviet regime would entail struggling virtually every day to maintain a pretense of allegiance to Stalin. As recounted by Hanna, the Davidsons’ journey into the Soviet interior makes for an extraordinary story. More than a memoir of survival, the Davidsons’ story is clearly one of a family whose spirit could not be destroyed by persecution, war, famine, or political oppression. ” Subjects: Jews - Poland - Lódz - Biography.

Softcover, 503 pages, 8vo. "We devote nearly half of volume 32 of Yad Vashem Studies to various aspects of the Holocaust in [Hungary]. Six articles by both established and lesser-known scholars break new ground in Holocaust research and analysis. Randolph Braham reassesses rescue operations in Hungary, focusing on six major operations. He makes penetrating, critical observations on the motivations, objectives, strategies, and tactics of the Jewish, Hungarian, and German participants involved. Most importantly, Braham differentiates between what he sees as the myths and the realities that were related in many postwar accounts of the rescue of Jews in Hungary....László Karsai presents a first analysis of war crimes' trials in Hungary by the Hungarian People's Courts. ...Guy Miron and Anna Szalai look at Jewish reactions to the anti-Jewish laws passed in Hungary and, in the process, reveal a great deal about Hungarian Jewish identity on the eve of the Holocaust there. ...Three articles in this volume relate to Polish-Jewish relations and interactions before and during the Holocaust. Dariusz Libionka's analysis of the attitudes of the Polish Catholic intellectual press toward the Jews in the 1930s makes for devastating reading. ...Felicja Karay discusses the fascinating and strange case of the HASAG-Kielce forced-labor camp...Edward Kossoy tells the remarkable story of a group of 400 Jewish prisoners in the Gesiówka camp in Warsaw, who were liberated by a volunteer Polish force during the first days of the Polish uprising in Warsaw in August 1944....Three articles address the impact of new battlegrounds on the Holocaust as perceived from three different perspectives--the Germans, the Jews, and the Allies. Dan Michman returns to one of the best-known documents from the Holocaust--Heydrich's Schnellbrief--and asks the simple yet heretofore unaddressed question: why was it written? .... The late Raquel Hodara analyzes the activities and reactions of Polish Jewish women to the Nazis during the first months of the occupation. .... And finally, Nicholas Terry re-examines the level of information and comprehension of the Holocaust in British military intelligence circles during the first months of the systematic murder of the Jews. ...The volume concludes with five review articles on books by German, American, and Israeli authors. Joachim Neander reviews three new books on the SS economic administration and the forced labor that it employed; Yaacov Lozowick reviews Isabel Heinemann's book on the SS-Race and Resettlement Main Office; Judith Baumel reviews Nechama Tec's book on women, men, and the Holocaust; Michael Berenbaum reviews Dan Michman's book on Holocaust historiography from a Jewish perspective; and Nathan Cohen reviews the encyclopedia of Holocaust literature edited by Lillian Kremer. Two important aspects of the Holocaust that are highlighted in the contents of this volume--the Holocaust in Hungary and the individual--are reflected in the cover photos. Sándor Markovits's pocket watch individualizes fourteen Hungarian Jews from Simleul Silvaniei (Szilágysomlyó) whom the Nazis set out to murder in 1944, in their last-ditch effort to complete the "Final Solution. " In the background we see the faces of Hungarian Jews deported from the Carpathian Mountains to Birkenau at nearly exactly the same moment in history at which the Markovits family was deported.

Softbound. 8vo. XXV, 130 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Azrieli series of Holocaust survivor memoirs; Series II. “The son of a diamond merchant in Antwerp’s famous diamond exchange, Paul-Henri Rips was ten years old when the Nazis invaded Belgium in May 1940 and ended what he calls his ‘golden childhood’ forever. He imbues his fascinating memoir with his child’s-eye perceptions of the events unfolding around him and the diverse cast of characters who inhabited Belgium and France during the Nazi occupation. Unflinchingly describing Nazi and Flemish perpetrators of antisemitic violence, Paul-Henri also brings to life resistance fighters, collaborators, black marketeers, soldiers, Christian nuns and priests, Roma and ordinary Belgian and French citizens. Drawing upon childhood references to make sense of what was happening to him, and delving into events and geographic areas often neglected in Holocaust research, his account is a unique combination of place, time and perspective. Ultimately, what Paul-Henri Rips carries away with him from his harrowing experiences are two admonitions from his father: ‘A klapt vargayt, a wort bestayt’ (A blow will go away again, but a word lasts forever) and ‘Sei a mensch’ (Be a decent human being) . His story is a testament to his father’s belief in the importance of holding on to one’s own humanity in the face of unfathomable inhumanity. ” (Publishers description) .

Azrieli series of Holocaust survivor memoirs; Series II. “Fred Mann’s compelling story is at once a nerve-wracking account of his family’s efforts to stay one step ahead of the Nazi death machinery and the captivating story of a boy’s rapid entry into manhood. His account is rooted in rich details of daily life in Leipzig and Berlin under the Third Reich. With the rise of the Nazis, Fred recalls in the most personal of terms the tightening net of persecution that gradually made life in Germany intolerable for its Jews and forced his family to flee. Using the biblical theme of Exodus to give shape to his story, he traces his family’s exile through Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Jamaica and finally to a new home in Canada. A tale of truly epic proportions, at once tragic and hopeful, it is also a story of the profound resilience of youth, of a boy who found himself taking on adult responsibilities while at the same time wrestling with his newfound attraction to girls. Though he is proud of his maverick spirit and his ability to aid his family in a time of desperate need, Fred Mann’s story is also a lament for a lost childhood, a lament for having to grow up too fast. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Germany.

Title page in English: “The life and writings of Dr. Philip Friedman: short bio-bibliographical survey. ” This memorial work outlines the biography and writings of the holocaust survivor and historian Dr. Phillip Friedman. From the Yivo Major Collections description of his work: “Historian Philip Friedman collected documentation on the Holocaust and wrote extensively on the subject. He served as the first director of the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland in the post-war period, as consultant to the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, and as director of the YIVO-Yad Vashem bibliographical series on the Holocaust. His papers include eyewitness accounts collected from Holocaust survivors by the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland. ” From a New York Times Article (“Holocaust Historian” written by Lucy S. Dawidowicz; January 11, 1981) : “In July 1944 Philip Friedman was one of a mere thousand survivors of the 150, 000 Jews of his native Lvov. Before the war he had already become known as a historian of Polish Jewry, but thenceforth, until his death in New York at 59 in 1960, he dedicated himself to the history of the Jews in that crucible of death which we now call the holocaust. […] Philip Friedman has rightfully been called the father of holocaust history. Except for Emanuel Ringelblum, who did not survive the war, Friedman was the first to organize the collecting of records about Jewish life and death under German wartime occupation. Friedman stimulated survivors to write memoirs and urged them to gather letters, photographs, relics and any remains that would serve future historians. Subjects: Friedman, Philip, 1901-1960.

Softbound. 4to. XXII, 358 pages. 26 cm. First edition. Profusely illustrated with over 100 photographs in color. Naomi Kramer, the Education Director of the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, and Ronald Headland, music teacher at Vanier College, use the example of the individual to approach universal issues that inevitably arise in discussing the Holocaust - evil, courage, human dignity, moral responsibility, and the existential qualities of humankind. This book consists of two main sections - the first involves interpretation and reflections on the meaning of one individual's experiences during the Shoah. The second section sets forth the historical content in which these experiences occurred. It contains a comprehensive historical summary of the Shoah and represents a succinct synopsis of existing secondary literature and primary sources. A bibliography and extensive glossary of terms relating to both Jewish life and the Shoah are included. The strength of the book lies in its combination of micro- and macro-histories. Its micro-history section, entitled ``One, '' comes in the form of the personal testimony of Holocaust survivor Peter Kleinmann. It provides detail and individual nuance to the general, impersonal events of the Shoah. From sweet, pre-war memories of Jewish communal life in Munkàcs, to his death march from Gross-Rosen to Flossenbürg, Kleinmann's voice quietly evokes a small, tragic piece of the puzzle of Holocaust suffering. His experience of being saved from certain death only by a chance encounter with his brother who was a prisoner processing other prisoners in Flossenbürg, reminds us of the often arbitrary, slight difference between survivor and victim.

A brief history of the study of DP camps and of the lives of Holocaust survivors after the war. “Precious little scholarly attention has been given to these areas. The reasons for such a state of affairs are numerous, ranging from the previous general inattention paid to the Holocaust (a phenomenon now corrected perhaps to excess) , to the problem, especially in America, of linguistic competency among graduate students and even accomplished scholars, to the very real problem of artificial periodization in which the twin pillars of Holocaust and Redemption allow little room for self-standing research areas between them. ” Interestingly, there appears to be a typo in this offprint.

The article attempts to compare the reactions of two witnesses to the trial, Hannah Arendt and Haim Gouri, to the proceedings. These writers represent two conflicting perspectives- a Jewish-universalist one on the one hand, and a Jewish-Israeli one on the other….Interestingly, the insight of both Arendt and Gouri played a role in subverting the prevalent attitudes toward the memory of the Holocaust in Israeli society. While Arendt’s assertions became a basis of a tendency to universalize the Holocaust, removing it from a specific Jewish context, Gouri’s observations led to a strong identification with Diaspora Jewry. The Eichmann trial and the new perceptions in its wake marked the beginning of the decline of the concept of ‘Negation of the Diaspora’ and the acceptance of the Holocaust as a major identity-forming factor in Israeli society.” (from abstract) SUBJECT(S): War crime trials -- Jerusalem.

They were able to confide in Claudine Vegh not only because she was a psychiatrist-in-training, but because she herself had lost her father in the Holocaust, and had experienced similar suffering. … In his afterward, Bruno Bettelheim discusses the role that mourning plays in coming to terms with the death of loved ones. For these children, mourning wasn't possible; they had to deny their feelings in order to survive. Although this denial allowed them to marry, have children, and hold jobs, it robbed them of the chance to grieve for their losses. At last, these interviews afforded the opportunity to mourn; and for those interviewed, as well as for the reader, they are an unforgettable experience. ” (dustjacket description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - France - Personal narratives.

1st edition, original cloth, 4to. 579 pages, illustartions throughout. In Yiddish, with some Hebrew. English title on half title page: “Book of kehilat Ostrolenka: yizkor book of the Jewish community of Ostrolenka. ” “In the Book of the Jewish Community in Ostrolenka, you will meet and learn about a community with Torah and cultural institutions, its own way of life, synagogues, study halls, schools, Zionist and anti-Zionist youth organizations. Chassidim and Misnagdim, merchants and tradesmen, community workers, amateur actors, the wealthy, the beggars, the water carriers – all came together in a wonderful realization of life. Among the townspeople were those who dreamed of Zion and Jerusalem, thirsty for the redemption. They arose, shook off the life of the Diaspora, and emigrated to the Land of Israel as pioneers, leaving houses and livelihoods, to build and put down roots in the Land of Israel. They participated in the wars of the undergrounds and in the War of Independence. Some fell in battle, and made the establishment of the State of Israel possible. Those who emigrated before the World War II and became established in Israel – in cities, villages, moshavim and kibbutzim – supported and assisted the surviving remnant of our townspeople through charitable funds, and by finding them places to work and live. Thus, they helped to bring them some tranquility and comfort after the suffering and hardship endured during the Holocaust. In the Book of the Jewish Community in Ostrolenka, published in 1963, the articles and poems are written mostly in Yiddish, in consideration of both the Holocaust survivors, who spoke and read only Yiddish, and of our townspeople in the Diaspora. We must not forget what happened to our fathers, our brothers, our families. This book must be passed from generation to generation, to bear true witness to what the German Nazis and their helpers did to them. This book includes pictures of memorial plaques put up in Ostrolenka in cooperation with the Ostrolenka Municipality, at the Holon cemetery, the Chamber of the Holocaust in Jerusalem and the Martyrs' Forest on the way to Jerusalem. ” (translated from book, Jewishgen 2018) .

Publishers cloth. 8vo. 171, [1] pages. 21 cm. First edition. In Norwegian. Title translates as: “People among the people: a book on anti-Semitism and xenophobia. ” Written by Leo Eitinger (1912 - 1996) , Holocaust survivor, Norwegian psychiatrist, and Human Rights advocate. “He devoted a long period studying late-onset psychological trauma amongst Holocaust survivors, wherein Holocaust survivors like Paul Celan, Primo Levi and many others committed suicide due to holocaust trauma, several decades after the experience, towards late adulthood. Leo Eitinger was born in Lomnice, Moravia, at that time a town in the Austrian-Hungarian empire; currently the capital of Jihomoravský kraj and belonging to the Czech Republic. He studied medicine at the Masaryk University of Brno, graduated in 1937, and was drafted as an officer into the Czech Air Force. In 1939 he fled Nazi persecution of Jews and came to Norway as a refugee with the help of Nansenhjelpen. Upon arriving in Norway, he arranged for Jewish children to escape from Czechoslovakia to settle in the Jewish orphanage in Oslo. He was given permission to work as a resident in psychiatry in Norway in Bodø, but the permission was revoked by the Nazis after they invaded the country in 1940. He stayed underground from January 1941 until he was arrested in March 1942. He was imprisoned in various places throughout Norway and was deported on the ship Gotenland on February 24, 1943, arriving by train via Berlin at the concentration camp at Auschwitz (where the number 105268 was tattoed on his arm) and was later moved to Buchenwald. Of the 762 Jews deported from Norway to German concentration camps, only 23 survived - Leo Eitinger was one of them. After returning to Norway he specialised in psychiatry. In 1966 Leo Eitinger was appointed professor of psychiatry at the University of Oslo and became Head of the University Psychiatric Clinic. After the war Leo Eitinger allocated all his time and efforts to the study of human suffering with emphasis on clinical psychiatry, in particular victimology and disaster psychiatry. He conducted several landmark studies about the long-term psychological and physical effects of extreme stress and also about being a refugee. Some of the major works have been published; e. G. Concentration camp survivors in Norway and Israel (1964) ; Mortality and morbidity after extreme stress (1973) ; Strangers in the world (1981) ” (University of Oslo description) Subjects: Antisemitism -- History.

Publishers description: “The unknown story of the successful American rescue of approximately 1, 000 children from the Holocaust is told in the words of the children and their rescuers. Sent across the ocean by their parents and taken in by foster parents and distant relatives, approximately 1, 000 children, ranging in age from fourteen months to sixteen years, landed in the United States and out of Hitler's reach between 1934 and 1945. Seventy years after the first ship brought a handful of these children to American shores, the general public and many of the children themselves remain unaware of these rescues, and the fact that they were accomplished despite powerful forces in and outside the government that did not want them to occur. This is the first published account, told in the words of the children and their rescuers, to detail this unknown part of America's response to the Holocaust. It will challenge the belief that Americans did nothing to directly and actively save Holocaust victims. Judith Tydor Baumel, Holocaust scholar and sister of two rescued children, provides an introduction explaining why, when, how, and where the rescues were carried out, who the heroes and heroines were, and which individuals and organizations placed almost insurmountable obstacles in their path. This account presents both recollections and experiences recorded at the time of the rescued children, their descendants, and their rescuers. The story demonstrates what a small group of determined people can do to change the course of history. “ Subjects: Jewish refugees - United States. Jewish refugees - United States - Biography.

Already involved with the association of Communist students, she became a member of the German Communist Party (KPD) in 1926. Two years later, she married Hans Grundig, also a member of the Communist Party, and they both began to create posters and illustrations for Communist purposes. Lea Grundig focused on linocuts, etchings, and drawings in a late-expressionist style describing the milieu of the lower classes … Both Hans und Lea Grundig were persecuted by the National Socialist authorities and had to give up working as artists. Lea was deported but managed to flee to Palestine in 1940, where she created several series of etchings related to the Holocaust. Hans Grundig was incarcerated and sent to the concentration camp of Sachsenhausen in 1940. He survived and met his wife again in 1949, when she returned to Dresden.

Publishers cloth. 4to. 223 pages. 26 cm. First Dutch edition. Translated from the German. The Yellow Star: The Persecution of the Jews in Europe, 1933-1945. With 196 photographs. “Originally published in 1960 in German as Der Gelbe Stern, this landmark book was one of the first comprehensive photographic accounts of the Holocaust. During the 1950s, researchers in Washington, D. C. And London pored over more than 1, 500 tons of photographs and documents seized after World War II. In 1960 Gerhard Schoenberner gathered some 200 photographs from the newly uncovered material, most of them taken by Nazis to chronicle their war against the Jews. Schoenberner named the book after the yellow badge that the Nazis forced the persecuted Jews to wear. With its comprehensive, authoritative presentation of visual and textual evidence, much of which had not yet not been seen before, The Yellow Star shocked the German population and introduced the world to many haunting images. The book endures as one of the most important documentary accounts of the Holocaust, reprinted in many German editions and published in eight languages. The photographs are accompanied by extracts from Nazi and German documents-laws, decrees, and other Reich memoranda, field reports from SS officers and concentration camp directors, newspaper editorials, and other writings. Schoenberner also provides detailed captions to the photographs. Organized chronologically, the book follows the growing scope and terror of the Holocaust, from the first anti-Jewish laws and Kristallnacht to ghetto uprisings and the Final Solution, culminating in the liberation of the death camps. ” (Publishers description to English edition) .

In Hebrew and German in parallel columns (with diacritic vowel marks under the Hebrew, and with Yiddish translation between Hebrew). Original 1938 title page, with verso 1944 German title page: “Den jüdischen Flüchtlingen in der Schweiz; Zur Feier des [Pesakh]-Festes im Jahre 5704; überreicht vom Schweizerischen Israelitischen Gemeindebund.” (For the Jewish Refugees in Switzerland; For the celebration of Pesakh in the year 5704; presented by the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities). Copyright by Lehrberger & Co. of Frankfurt. A European-published hagada from the darkest period of the Holocaust, produced specifically for those feeling the inferno. During 1943 and 1944, the extermination camps were working at a furious rate to kill the hundreds of thousands of people shipped to them by rail from almost every country within the German sphere of influence, and by the spring of 1944, up to 8,000 people were being gassed every day at Auschwitz (USHMM, 2012). Passover 1944 began on April 8, the day that the roundups of the Jews of Carpatho-Ruthenia and northern Hungary started. On April 14, the last day of the Holiday, László Endre & László Baky (German-installed heads of the Ministry of the Interior) and Eichmann made the official decision to deport all the Jews of Hungary. With ten illustrations; an early 19th century German Orthodox Haggadah originally compiled by Wolf Heidenheim in 1822. Published for German-Jewish refugees in Switzerland under the auspices of the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities, founded in 1904 to help protect the general interest of Jews in Switzerland; during the second world war, the Federation helped support the refugee community in Switzerland: “Prior to and during the Second World War, Switzerland gave refuge to about 23,000 Jewish refugees although the government decided that Switzerland would serve only as a country of transit. These Jews were protected during the Holocaust due to Swiss neutrality. The Jewish refugees, however, did not receive the financial support from the government that non-Jewish refugees received. Many more Jews were prevented from entering, effectively shutting the border.“ (Jewish Virtual Library; Switzerland).

Beautiful accordion-style (double page) binding. In our research, we have come across no other copies with signed linocuts, so this may represent a special sub-edition, given that Allweil bound all published copies of the book himself. Published in the midst of the Holocaust, the ancient themes in Amos of abuse of the marginalized are everpresent in Allweil’s production. As Scott Ponemone notes, “In his autobiographical essay in the book Allweil (Arieh Allweil, Max Brod and I.M. Lask, Sinai Publishing, Tel Aviv, Israel, 1955), Allweil again used the quote ‘The prophet spoke to all generations…’ that served as his motto. He then said: ‘One of the writers advised me to quote these words as a motto in my illustrations to the book of Amos [this work]. This text I wrote with my personal lettering [i.e. his own Hebrew font], and opposite every written page I printed a Lino-cut. I similarly made three megillahs [scrolls, or more loosely translated, narratives]: Ruth, Esther and Lamentations. I put figures into our home, the people are our brothers, our parents and our children.’ I believe that what Allweil meant by the last sentence (‘I put figures into our home,…) is that his linocuts would reflect not only the Old Testament days of the Prophet Amos but the agonies of the Holocaust that began in the 1930s. In his essay, he then quoted from the biblical text of Amos and then indicated how he used contemporary events to illustrate that text: ‘ ‘Shall a trumpet be blown in the city.‘ This is a siren for an air-raid. On the day when I finished the book Amos, the first Italian bombs fell; they fell on our house, and we were saved. ‘Though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down.’ This mean[s] aeroplanes. ‘With threshing instruments of iron.’ I know what this means–tanks.”” Indeed, several of the full-page linocuts show modern soldiers, a tank, an airplane, and German-style grenades, in addition to general scenes of death, destruction, and public torture, interspersed with the biblical-era characters and settings. Ponemone also notes that for Amos, Allweil “printed, cut and bound the pages himself. This herculean effort, while notable, would not have been sufficient had his illustrations not exhibited tremendous energy and imagination. If his Amos had been an isolated accomplishment, Allweil would deserve lasting renown.”Biographer and curator Galia Bar Or notes that Allweil (1901-1967) “made a distinctive contribution to Israeli art in two very different and contrasting fields: a new visual interpretation of biblical texts by means of black-and-white prints and calligraphy, in works that in a unique and topical way express his suppressed anguish at the horrors of the Holocaust period, and an original development of richly colorful and pictorial landscape painting…. The dialectical relations between these two orientations in Allweil’s oeuvre, nightmare and utopia, hints its complex character….In 1939 Allweil established an independent publishing firm named ‘Hillel’ [after his father], and in the course of the war years and the Holocaust he published books that he produced with his own hands, among them The Anonymous Jew, Lamentations, Amos and Esther. He hand-gouged the texts on linoleum, interspersed the illustrations with allusions to events of the period, printed the sheets, cut, folded and bound the books all by himself.”Galia Gavish, the author of two books on Allweil writes that he “produced his illustrated books in a German expressionist style and in a Jewish spirit. Similarly to European artists, who used Greek mythology as an political allegory for their period, Allweil drew his allegorical materials from the Jewish classics the Bible. Allweil’s choice of the Scrolls of Esther, Lamentations and Amos, and the Passover Haggadah, are significant. Each of these books has an apocalyptic atmosphere with a hopeful ending.”For more on Allweil, see Bar Or’s catalog “Arieh Allweil: Letters, Figures, Landscapes”(https://museumeinharod.org.il/en/letters-figures-landscapes), Gavish’s “Arieh Allweil: Prints & Calligraphy” and “Arieh Allweil: From Bitania to Vienna and Back;” and the Israel Museum’s information page on Allweil (https://museum.imj.org.il/artcenter/newsite/en/?artist=Allweil,%20Arieh). For more specifically on this work, Amos, see Scott Ponemone’s discussions online at http://www.scottponemone.com/arieh-allweil-the-book-of-amos-part-1/ and http://www.scottponemone.com/arieh-allweil-the-book-of-amos-part-2/. About the Biblical Book of Amos: The prophet Amos’s connection to the simple life of the people made its way into the center of his prophecies, as he showed a heart for the oppressed and the voiceless in the world. Though he came from the southern kingdom of Judah, Amos delivered his prophecy against the northern kingdom of Israel and the surrounding nations, leading to some resistance from the prideful Israelites (Amos 7:12). Jeroboam’s reign had been quite profitable for the northern kingdom, at least in a material sense. However, the moral decay that also occurred at that time counteracted any positives from the material growth. Amos was fed up. While most of the prophets interspersed redemption and restoration in their prophecies against Israel and Judah, Amos devoted only the final five verses of his prophecy for such consolation. Prior to that, God’s word through Amos was directed against the privileged people of Israel, a people who had no love for their neighbor, who took advantage of others, and who only looked out for their own concerns. More than almost any other book of Scripture, the book of Amos holds God’s people accountable for their ill-treatment of others. It repeatedly points out the failure of the people to fully embrace God’s idea of justice. They were selling off needy people for goods, taking advantage of the helpless, oppressing the poor, and abusing young women (Amos 2:6–8; 3:10; 4:1; 5:11–12; 8:4–6). Drunk on their own economic success and intent on strengthening their financial position, the people had lost the concept of caring for one another; Amos rebuked them because he saw in that lifestyle evidence that Israel had forgotten God. However, the people in the north used Amos’s status as a foreigner as an excuse to ignore his message of judgment for a multiplicity of sins.Rather than seeking out opportunities to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly, they embraced their arrogance, idolatry, self-righteousness, and materialism.

Softbound. 8vo. 448 pages. 22 cm. First edition. In German. Title translates as: “'Final solution': Nazi population policy and the murder of the European Jews. “ The author, Gotz Aly, born 1947, was an independent left-wing journalist for many years after being expelled from public institutions in 1976 under the “Radicals Decree”. In the last twenty years he has published a number of extensively researched volumes on the holocaust. His “Final Solution” analyses the direct linkage between the Nazi “population movements” and the extermination of the Jews. “Making extensive use of Russian, German, and Polish archives, Aly has provided the most exact and detailed reconstruction of the ‘Final Solution’ yet achieved. As well as looking at the ideological imperative in the Nazi state to ‘solve the Jewish question’ and at Hitler's own role, Aly investigates the actions of those running the Reich Security Headquarters in Berlin and of those numerous lesser figures on the ground who were in the eye of the storm, grappling with the planning failures inherent in Nazi resettlement plans and experiencing mounting difficulties in trying to be rid of ‘their’ Jews. Aly illustrates, through the evidence he builds into an overall mosaic, the lunacy of Nazi race policy, and the variety of agencies that went into the gradual shaping of a policy of all-out genocide. ” (American publishers description) . Gotz Aly, long a marginalized intellectual, in recognition of his precise historical research, was honored by the German President Horst Kohler with an appointment to the board of trustees of the Jewish Museum Berlin.

With scores of detailed maps and hundreds of photographs, this reference work is organized alphabetically by county, each prefaced with a map and a contextual history describing its Jewish population up to and into 1944. Entries track the demographic, cultural, and religious changes in even the smallest communities where Jews lived before their marginalization, dispossession, ghettoization, and, finally, deportation to labor and death camps. The encyclope¬dia endows scholars and lay researchers with both panoramic and microscopic views of the virtually last-minute destruction of most of the Jews of Hungary, until then the last sizable surviving Jewish community in occupied Europe. ” - USHMM.

Profusely illustrated, with an epilogue by Randolph L. Braham. Presented by Steven Spielberg and Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation; with an introduction by David Cesarani; historical consultants, Michael Berenbaum, Randolph Braham. “The German plan for annihilation of the Jews-called the 'Final Solution'-set the goal that not a single survivor would be left to bear witness to the events. Fifty years later, Steven Spielberg established Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation to record the testimony of as many survivors as possible. From the ashes of the Holocaust these voices now emerge to share their stories and to represent the nearly six million Jews who did not survive. Survivors and liberators share what they experienced in gripping, firsthand testimony. Archival photographs document history, and powerful color images chronicle the survivors' emotional return to the places of their pasts: from homes unseen for fifty years to the ghettos and concentration camps of their imprisonment. Top scholars have been brought together to share their insights into one of humanity's darkest chapters. These elements are poignantly synthesized in The Last Days as a warning for all mankind. ” - Publishers Description. Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Jews - Persecutions - Hungary.

Separated from her parents, Ruth spends the rest of the war in a Catholic convent and told to forget her parents and religion.

Full Morocco. Folio. [196] pages. 35 x 23 cm. Two volumes housed in linen slipcase. Het Achterhuis, the Diary of Anne Frank, with illustrations, deluxe letterpress printed edition. One of 350 numbered copies, signed by Joseph Goldyne and Barry Moser. Gray morocco by Ellenport of Boston, stamped in blind, with quarter gray morocco and linen matching chemise for the tissued plates, slipcased. 14 x 9 inches (35 x 23 cm); text volume unpaginated (with ten plates), the chemise with ten pencil signed plates. Goldyne's work comprises etching, aquatint and roulette. Anne Frank’s Diary, appearing first in Dutch as “HET ACHTERHUIS: DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942-1 AUGUSTUS 1944” and later in English as “The Diary of a Young Girl,” is a work which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew, etc…. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012). This edition comprised a commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Anne Frank. This title has sold at auction in 2007, 2009, & 2011 for over USD 1550.

Original Wraps. 8vo. 222, [2] pages. 21 cm. First edition. In Yiddish. Book one only. “The Hitlerite Policy of Jewish-Destruction, in the years 1939-1945; an expression of German imperialism. ” At head of title: Yidisher Historisher Institut in Poyln. The author also published in 1955 a Yiddish volume concerning the ‘Remilitarization of West Germany and the Role of Hitler’s Generals’. Written by Artur Eisenbach (1906–1992) , a “Polish Jewish historian. Artur Eisenbach was one of the last representatives of a distinguished group of scholars who, in the years before World War I and in independent Poland between 1918 and 1939, laid the foundation for an investigation of the Polish Jewish past. … He was influenced primarily by the Marxist school of Jewish historians, in particular by Raphael Mahler and Emanuel Ringelblum (whose sister he married) . Eisenbach was an active member of the Yunger Historiker Krayz (Young Historians Circle) founded by Mahler and Ringelblum. Eisenbach spent World War II in the Soviet Union, but his wife and child were trapped in Buczacz, where they were murdered by the Nazis in 1942. After his return to Poland in May 1946, he worked at the Central Historical Commission of the Central Committee of Polish Jews. When the Jewish Historical Institute was established later that year, he was appointed head of its archives, and subsequently became a researcher. In the decade following the war, Eisenbach devoted himself entirely to studying the Holocaust. Later he gradually returned to the theme that he had devoted himself to before the war—Jewish emancipation in the first half of the nineteenth century. In 1966, he became a member of the Committee for the Historical Sciences at the Polish Academy of Sciences and was awarded the title of professor. In the same year, he was appointed director of the Jewish Historical Institute. In 1968, Eisenbach was forced to resign his latter position, and retained only his title at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He decided not to emigrate and in the following years produced a series of monographs on Polish Jewish problems in the first half of the nineteenth century, research that formed the essential basis for future work on this subject. He also continued to work on Holocaust themes, editing Ringelblum’s diary and essay on Polish–Jewish relations. In his last years, he moved to Israel, where he had a nephew and where, active as ever, he worked on an account of Polish–Jewish relations in the nineteenth century. ” (Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe) .

Joffe is a leading historian regarding the Holocaust in Belarus. He has written thoroughly on the subject and among other titles is a board member of the national historic Society and Foundation in Trostenets. Maly Trotenests was a “village in Eastern Bellrussia located 7.5 miles east of Minsk; camp and site of mass murder of Jews. About 200, 000 people were murdered in the Trostenets area. About 65, 000 were killed in Maly Trostenets, including over 30, 000 from the last major action in Minsk. Between July 28--31, 1942 and on October 21, 1943 the last Jews from Minsk were murdered and buried in Maly Trostenets and Bolshoi Trostenets. During 1942, Jews from Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Austria, and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia were brought by train to be killed in Maly Trostenets. Most of the victims were lined up in front of large pits and shot. Tractors then flattened the pits out. The prisoners in the camp were forced to sort through the victims' possessions and maintain the camp. They occasionally underwent selections (see also Selktion) . This happened more frequently during 1943. In the fall of 1943 the Nazis began to destroy all evidence of mass murder by burning bodies. Soviet Prisoners of war were forced to rake through the ashes looking for gold. As the Soviet army approached in June 1944, the Germans killed most of the remaining prisoners. On June 30 the Germans completely destroyed the camp. When the Soviets arrived on July 3, they found a few Jews who had escaped. ” (yadvashem.org) Subjects: Jews, German -- Belarus.

(FT) Original Wrappers. 12mo. 79 pages. 17 cm. Undated edition. In Yiddish. “Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Itzhak Katzenelson (1885–1944) , a Hebrew and Yiddish poet. ”Katzenelson’s world fell apart when in August 1942 his wife Hanna and two younger sons, Ben-Tsiyon and Binyamin, were deported to Treblinka. From then on, his literary creativity was piercingly shaped by lamentations over the loss of his family. Nonetheless, with his oldest son, Tsevi, he found the strength to join the Jewish Fighting Organization and took part in the first uprising of January 1943. After the ghetto was destroyed in April and May 1943, he escaped to the Aryan section of Warsaw and obtained a Honduran identity document. Nevertheless, he was sent to a German detention camp for foreign subjects in Vittel, France. He was imprisoned there until April 1944, and devoted most of his time to writing. Two important works were produced during that period: Pinkas Vitel (The Vittel Diary) , a Hebrew composition that uses the language of an incensed diarist and reconstructs the days of terror in Warsaw during the mass deportations; and Dos lid fun oysgehargetn yidishn folk (The Poem about the Murdered Jewish People) , a pathos-filled Yiddish poem that laments the destruction of the Jewish people and of the poet himself, who has been become bitterly angry with humankind and God. These two works are among the boldest and most lofty literary expressions to emerge from the Holocaust. … All of Katzenelson’s works from his Vittel period were either buried in hiding places or were given to people he trusted; consequently, they were saved and published shortly after the end of the war. In the middle of April 1944, Katzenelson and his son Tsevi were sent to the Drancy transit camp, and from there one month later to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. In 1950, the Ghetto Fighters kibbutz built a museum and an institute for research about the Holocaust that bear Yits? Ak Katzenelson’s name. ” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Poetry.

Prepared and selected from the magazine "In the Lead" (Vedem) by Marie Ruth Krízková, Kurt Jirí Koutouc, and Zdenek Ornest; translated from the Czech by R. Elizabeth Novak; edited by Paul R. Wilson; with a foreword by Václav Havel. “From 1942 to 1944, a group of 13- to 15-year-old Jewish boys secretly produced a weekly magazine called Vedem (In the Lead) at the model concentration camp, Theresienstadt (‘Terezin’ in Czech) . The writers, artists, and editors put together the issues and copied them by hand behind the blackout shades of their cellblock, which they affectionately called the ‘Republic of Shkid. ’ The material was saved by one of the handful of boys who survived the Holocaust, but it was suppressed for fifty years in Czechoslovakia. Now, for the first time, these works are being published simultaneously in English, Czech, and German. Vedem is a poignant glimpse at the world of boys torn from their comfortable childhoods, separated from their families, ultimately to perish in the Nazi death machine. “ (Dustjacket description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Czechoslovakia - Personal narratives.

Mainly using untapped oral histories of Italian Jews and Catholics, this book shows that Catholics in Italy who saved Jews firmly believed they were doing so in consonance with the Pope's wishes. Readers will get to know these courageous individuals through their inspiring memoirs. Yours is a Precious Witness strives to draw a more personal portrait of Pius XII.

1st edition, original cloth, 4to. 505 pages + [2] pages of plates. Illustrations throughout. In Hebrew and Yiddish. “For the convenience of the reader and for the sake of orderliness the book is divided into five sections. The largest and most comprehensive of these is called ‘The Telz Yeshiva – its Rabbis and its Institutions’. And indeed the major part of the section is devoted to these topics, which are brought back again with various points of view in additional sections, such as ‘The History of Jewish Telz’, ‘Personalities’, ‘Memories’. These three sections present very important details about the life of the Jewish community in Telz, and a description of the events of the old families of the area and of the personalities central to the establishment of the Yeshiva and to its leadership, up to its last day, dealing either with the founding fathers and Torah greats, like Rabbi Nathan Tsvi Finkel (the ‘Grandfather’) , Rabbi Solomon Zalman Abel, and Rabbi Simon Judah Shkop, or with the rabbis and heads of yeshivas from the school of Rabbi Eliezer Gordon , Rabbi Joseph Judah Leib Bloch, and Rabbi Chaim Rabinowitz. These great scholars were also founders of prominent and important dynasties which left their mark on congregational life. Unfortunately these dynasties were cut off in their prime, after a generation or two, because of the terrible calamity which came upon Telz along with all the Jewish communities during the Second World War. As a result the shadow of the Holocaust hovers over many parts of this book and the reader will feel this without any doubt. The essential details and the descriptions of the bitter and sudden end of the Telz community are presented in concentrated and systematic form within the section ‘The Holocaust’, which is the second largest section in this book. When we read the shocking facts of the last days of the Jews of Telz we see the same known conclusion repeatedly verified concerning the enthusiastic participation of the local Lithuanians in the implementation of the murderous deeds and the oppression and humiliation of their neighbors the Jews. From the description of the facts it emerges that the process of destruction of the communities was a short one, relatively, and the ghetto in which mainly women and children were confined had already been liquidated by the end of 1941. Perhaps this is the reason the Jews of Telz did not succeed in organizing any resistance movement at all. Nevertheless their courageous conduct and the pride of several individuals, such as Isaac Bloch, a leader of Betar [a Revisionist Zionist youth movement], will serve as a lofty expression of symbolic resistance when faced with death. Furthermore, it seems that a number of Telz Jews succeeded in actively joining the fight against the Germans. Facts such as these, and others too, some of which are published here for the first time, are presented in abundance in this book. Because of this the book is intended to serve as an important source for everyone interested in knowing about and exploring the Jewry of our time in Eastern Europe in general and Lithuania in particular. ” (translated from book, Jewishgen 2018) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Lithuania -- Tels?

In this historic speech, Temple concludes, “My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind… The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. We know that what we can do is small compared with the magnitude of the problem, but we cannot rest so long as there is any sense among us that we are not doing all that might be done. We have discussed the matter on the footing we are not responsible for this great evil… but it is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create… We stand at the bar of history, of humanity, and of God. ” Holocaust-era speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Rochester made to the House of Lords outlining ongoing atrocities and calling for the British government to approach the problem of resettling Jewish refugees with more urgency. “William Temple (1881–1944) was a bishop in the Church of England. He served as Bishop of Manchester (1921–29) , Archbishop of York (1929–42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942–44) . A renowned teacher and preacher, Temple is perhaps best known for his 1942 book Christianity and Social Order, which set out an Anglican social theology and a vision for what would constitute a just post-war society…. Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II, Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

The town was the birthplace of Jacob of Dubno (the “Dubner Maggid”) and Israel Meir ha-Kohen (the “Hafetz Hayyim”). In 1897 the Jewish population was 3,979 (75 percent of the total). In 1926 there were 3,450 Jews out of 4,600 people in Zdzieciol (also 75 percent). Many Jewish refugees arrived from western and central Poland in 1939–1941 after the beginning of World War II, so that by the time of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, the Jewish population of the town had increased to more than 4,500. German forces occupied the town on June 30, 1941. On July 14, 1941, the local military commandant ordered that the Jews had to wear a six-pointed yellow star on the front and the back of their clothing. On July 23, about 120 of the most respected citizens and members of the Jewish intelligentsia were selected from among all the Jews assembled in the square. The selection was carried out according to a list compiled by SS-men who had arrived in Zdziecol especially for this purpose. Among those arrested were Alter Dvoretsky (an attorney active in Poalei Zion), the rabbi, and Jankel Kaplan. The local Jews bribed the Germans and thus attained the release of Dvoretsky and the rabbi. All the others were allegedly taken for forced labor, but two days later it was discovered that they had been murdered in the forest near the military barracks in Nowogródek.” (united states holocaust memorial museum 2018) SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Russia (Federation) -- Dyatlovo.

From its establishment in 1939 until the end of 1945, the Vaad spent more than three million dollars on relief and rescue activities. While its insistence on according rescue efforts top priority and circumventing bureaucratic and legal obstacles has been favorably acknowledged by historians, its particularism and insistence on priority for Torah learning at the possible expense of rescue activities continue to be a source of debate and polemic in the Jewish community (JVL, 2018) .

Edition: First Edition

Publishers cloth. 8vo. XXII, 310, [2] pages. 24 cm. First edition. “In this work Jacques Adler, a former member of the French resistance, asks: ‘Are people powerless when confronted with a State determined to destroy them? Why didn't more Jews survive the Holocaust? How did we survive? Did we, the survivors, do all that we could, at the time, to help more people survive? ’ In answering these questions, Adler examines the diverse Jewish organizations that existed in Paris during the German occupation from 1940 to 1944. The first part of the book analyzes the national composition of the Jewish population, its expropriation and daily life. The remaining chapters discuss the roles, activities, and policies of various Jewish organizations as they supported Jews in their search for survival, alerted the non-Jewish population to the terrible threat faced by every Jewish family, and acted as representatives of the Jewish people-a role that led to inevitable administrative cooperation with the Nazis and Vichy. Combining careful scholarship with a survivor's zeal to set the record straight, Adler gives an insider's account of resistance members, whose determination was born of the pain and anger that came from the loss of loved ones, whose political ideology sustained them even when they faced the threat of starvation and the loneliness of clandestine existence, and whose anguish was all the more intense because they belonged to that community in Paris that was selected as fodder for the "Final Solution. " Thoroughly researched and drawing upon previously unavailable materials, Adler presents an important portrait of communal solidarity and communal conflict, of heroes and those whose courage failed. “ (Publishers description) .

Softbound. 8vo. 264 pages. 24 cm. In German with parallel English and French translations. Extended title: “Bureaucrat of death; a documentation showing the capital guild of Bonn's top official in the liquidation of the Jews. ” Published by the Committee for German Unity, an East German governmental committee. As the title indicates, this work constitutes an extensive documentation of the Nazi past of Hans Globke, Director of the Federal Chancellory of West Germany between 1953 and 1963 and as such one of the closest aides to Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. Globke's key position as a national security advisor to Adenauer despite his involvement with the Office for Jewish Affairs during the Holocaust and in anticommunist activities in post-war West Germany made both the West German government and CIA officials wary of exposing his past. This led for instance to the withholding of Adolf Eichmann's alias from the Israeli government and Nazi hunters in the late '50s, and CIA pressure in 1960 on Life magazine to delete references to Globke from its recently obtained Eichmann memoirs. An interesting period piece for post-war German history, which serves as a searing indictment of the hushed up nazi histories of many members of the ruling class of West Germany.

(FT) Publishers cloth. 8vo. 144 pages. 24 cm. First edition. In Yiddish. inscribed in Yiddish on first page by the author. On verso of title page: For the sanctification of God's name. “Between his 1939 book of Yiddish poetry, ‘Yung Grin Mai’ (‘Young Green May’) and his caustic novella, ‘A Cat in the Ghetto, lay the Holocaust: Skaryýsko-Kamienna, where Rachmil Bryks was born in 1912; Lodz, to which he was deported; Auschwitz, which he survived, and, ultimately, New York — where he died in 1974, though later interred in Jerusalem. ‘A Cat in the Ghetto, ’ recently republished by Persea Books, first appeared in 1952 under the more unnerving title ‘Oyf Kidesh Hashem, ’ meaning, ‘In Sanctification of the Name, ’ but expressing, also, the pious euphemism for martyrdom. Like fellow survivor Yehiel De-Nur, who, writing under his camp name and number Ka-tzetnik 135633, called the gas chambers the ‘inner sanctum of the Temple of Auschwitz, ’ Bryks displays and proclaims like a 20th-century prophet. In his novellas, the tattooing needle of Auschwitz trails a thread tied, at one end, to the Book of Lamentations, which sanctified the destruction of a Jewish way of life in mourning the loss of a symbolic Temple, thereafter endlessly transformed. … Bryks took the litany of Lamentations as inspiration for the secular litany of his ghetto experience between 1939 and 1944. (Compared with the ghetto years, Auschwitz occupies a brief place in his collected works, which also include a novel, ‘The Paper Crown, ’ and stories from the beginning of the war. ) But whereas younger writers like these sacrificed everything to render literature true to experience, Bryks, writing in a very native Yiddish, clung fast to his roots in the Book of Prophets, Sholom Aleichem, the midrash, the folktale and the megillot. Bryks, who in photographs resembles a Polish vaudevillian, considered himself a survivor of neither the Holocaust nor the Shoah, but rather as one passed over by the ‘Khurbn, ’ which came only for the Yidn. In his essay ‘My Credo, ’ he wrote, ‘I want to emphasize that our Khurbn period includes also the spiritual khurbn in the Soviet Union during the Stalin era — the destruction of the Jewish word, the slaughter of Yiddish writers, actors, artists, teachers and others engaged in the field of Yiddish culture. ’ According to his daughters, the mamaloshn was the only tongue tolerated in their home on New York City’s Upper West Side, where, in contrast to the tortured linguistic contortions of German-language poet Paul Celan in Paris, Bryks wrote steadily at the kitchen table by day and met Isaac Bashevis Singer, Itzik Manger and Avrum Reisen for tea at the Garden Cafeteria. ” (From “A Yiddish Cat Still Laughing After Hot, Black Fire” by Daniel Elkind; published March 11, 2009, issue of March 20, 2009; Jewish Daily Forward) .

First edition. “This series of essays by one of today's most original and prolific scholars on German racial policy concerns three interrelated aspects of Nazi Germany: relations with 'the east', 'euthanasia' and extermination. They are linked closely by the sub-themes of professionals or 'experts' and an interest in competing systems of morality. The collection includes important and wholly new contributions to the German-Soviet war and other national tragedies; to the controversial question of whether the Nazi analogy has any relevance to contemporary ethical discussions; and to the contemporary historiography, including works of fiction and literary criticism, of the Holocaust. The product of twelve years' research on Nazi Germany, the book will be essential reading for anyone interested in current scholarship on the period, or indeed in how we might view the period in future decades. ” (publishers description) .

More than half of them--men, women and children--were brought hundreds and even thousands of miles across Europe to their deaths, forced into sealed railway trucks and shunted towards the unknown. Who were these people? Where did they come from? At what point did they know what was to become of them? How did they conduct themselves in these final days, and hours? Here, Martin Gilbert relates the fate of Jewish communities as far scattered as France and Rumania, Holland and Greece, plucked out from every corner of Europe, uprooted from their homes, separated from their loved ones, tortured, starved, shot and gassed, under barbaric conditions. On their way to death, no torment was spared them. Their journeys were a transition from hardship to hell: millions of unknown sagas of tragedy, courage, humanity and despair. Yet some, miraculously, survived. ” (publisher description) . Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Holocaust. Light shelf wear. Very good condition in good jacket. (HOLO2-102-30), HOLO8, bibliog4.

Publishers Cloth. 8vo. Pages. 24cm. First edition. "Nuremberg - a city associated with Nazi excesses, party rallies, and the extreme anti-Semitic propaganda published by Hitler ally Julius Streicher - has struggled since the Second World War to come to terms with the material and moral legacies of Nazism. Haunted City explores how the Nuremberg community has confronted the implications of the genocide in which it participated, while also dealing with the appalling suffering of ordinary German citizens during and after the war. Neil Gregor's compelling account of the painful process of remembering and acknowledging the Holocaust offers new insights into postwar memory in Germany and how it has operated. Gregor takes a novel approach to the theme of memory, commemoration, and remembrance, and he proposes a highly nuanced explanation for the failure of Germans to face up to the Holocaust for years after the war. His book makes a major contribution to the social and cultural history of Germany. " (Dust jacket) . Subjects: National socialism --Psychological aspects. Collective memory -- Germany -- Nuremberg.

8vo; 1st edition. Original illustrated red boards, 8vo, 342 pages. In Yiddish. Title translates as, "The destruction of Vilna." Kaczerginski (1908–1954) was a “Yiddish writer and cultural activist. Born in Vilna to a poor family and educated at that city’s Talmud Torah, Shmerke (Pol., Szmerke) Kaczerginski lost both his parents during World War I. As a youth, he was involved with outlawed Communist groups and was arrested several times, serving a lengthy prison term. In the 1930s, two of his revolutionary poems became popular in Poland. He wrote short stories with a radical bent and was a correspondent and reporter for literary publications, including the semilegal leftist press in Poland and the New York Communist daily Morgn-frayhayt. Kaczerginski played a key role in shaping the writers’ and artists’ group Yung-Vilne; he organized its evening events and was the de facto publisher of its three miscellanies between 1934 and 1936. During the period of Soviet control over Lithuania in 1940–1941, he was even more active in the field of Yiddish culture, but at the same time experienced his first disappointments with the attitude of the Soviet regime toward Jewish culture. During the first period of Nazi occupation, Kaczerginski wandered through villages and towns posing as a deaf mute; after many difficulties, he ended up in the Vilna ghetto. Kaczerginski was very involved in the ghetto’s cultural activities. As a leader of its youth club, he wrote its Yugnt-himen (Youth Hymn), a song that immediately became popular. In 1943, he wrote the song “Shtiler, shtiler” in memory of the mass murders committed at Ponar. Set to music that Aleksander Volkoviski (later known as Aleksander Tamir) had submitted to a contest organized by the ghetto, the song was first heard at an evening performance there and over the years became one of the best-known songs of the Holocaust. With Avrom Sutzkever and others, Kaczerginski became part of a group of forced laborers whom the Germans designated to sort Jewish cultural treasures at YIVO and other locations. Known as the Papir-brigade (Paper Brigade), the group’s members risked their lives to hide the most significant items, smuggling them back into the ghetto or entrusting them to non-Jewish acquaintances. Kaczerginski was a member of the Fareynikte Partizaner Organizatsye (United Partisans Organization; FPO), and, since YIVO’s building was located outside the ghetto walls, he took part in smuggling weapons into the ghetto. In September 1943, Kaczerginski, along with Avrom and Freydke Sutzkever and other members of the FPO, escaped from the Vilna ghetto as part of an organized group of fighters just before its liquidation. They joined a Soviet partisan unit in the Naroch Forests, where Kaczerginski fought as a partisan until liberation in July 1944. Kaczerginski’s books describe the destruction of Vilna, the partisan struggle, and his own experiences during the Holocaust period: Khurbn Vilne (The Destruction of Vilna; 1947), Partizaner geyen (Partisans on the Move; 1947), and Ikh bin geven a partizan (I Was a Partisan; 1952)” (YIVO, 2010).

Imprint: [Tel Aviv]: Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa, 1944
Edition: First Edition
Binding: Paperback
1st edition. Original paper wrappers, tall 12mo, 69 pages. 22 cm. In German. The first separate publication of a demand for Nazi reparations to the Jews. In July 1943, long before the war ended, Siegfried Moses coined the term “reparations” in relation to claims of Jewish citizens against the German state. He published an article on the restitution demands of Jews in the bulletin of the "Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa", Tel Aviv; they publish here those proposals as a separate work. For the first time, Moses proposed that a State can commit an injustice, for which it must then compensate the civilian population which suffered under that injustice. This legal opinion was later the basis for reparations by the Federal Republic of Germany. Siegfried Moses (1887-1974) was a German-Israeli lawyer and the first state comptroller Israel. After the Nazi seizure of power, he helped German Jews transfer assets to Palestine. From 1933 on he was also chairman of the Zionist Federation of Germany (ZVfD) and Vice President of the Reich Association of German Jews. In 1937 Moses himself fled to Palestine; then in 1941 he wrote (together with fellow German emigre Walter Schwarz) the text of the 1941 Palestinian Income Tax Act. In 1947 Moses was a member of the delegation of the Jewish Agency at the United Nations and in 1949, he became the first state comptroller Israel (Chief of Court) . In 1956-1957, he was also President of the "Council of Jews from Germany", the official association of Israelis of German origin. In 1955 he co-founded the Leo Baeck Institute, serving as its director, and was on the advisory board of the United Restitution Organization in Israel (Wikipedia, 2015) . SUBJECT(S) : Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Reparations. World War, 1939-1945 -- Claims. Jews -- Europe.

1st edition. Original printed paper wrappers, 69 pages ; 20 cm. In Yiddish. “Der Nister—which means ‘the Hidden One, a name that impels readers to seek the author in his literary creations—was the nom de plume of Pinkhes Kaganovich, who lived from 1884 to 1950. Born in Berdichev, Ukraine, he initially began writing in Hebrew, but it was in Yiddish literature that he made a lasting impression on contemporary Yiddish writers and critics. Der Nister’s wartime short stories—recently published as Regrowth: Seven Tales of Jewish Life Before, During, and After Nazi Occupation, Erik Butler’s first English-language translation of the Soviet Yiddish writer—expose new readers to a harrowing response to loss and destruction by one of the Soviet Union’s most enigmatic Jewish writers….

Softbound. 8vo. XII, 250 pages. 23 cm. First English edition. The memoir of Mietek Pemper; in collaboration with Viktoria Hertling, assisted by Marie Elisabeth Müller; translated by David Dollenmayer. Publishers description: “Mietek Pemper’s compelling and moving memoir tells the true story of how Schindler’s list really came to pass. Pemper was born in 1920 into a lively and cultivated Jewish family for whom everything changed in 1939 when the Germans invaded Poland. Evicted from their home, they were forced into the Krakow ghetto and, later, into the nearby camp of Plaszow where Pemper’s knowledge of the German language was put to use by the sadistic camp commandant Amon Goth. Forced to work as Goth’s personal stenographer from March 1943 to September 1944—an exceptional job for a Jewish prisoner—Pemper soon realized that he could use his position as the commandant’s private secretary to familiarize himself with the inner workings of the Nazi bureaucracy and exploit the system to his fellow detainees’ advantage. Once he gained access to classified documents, Pemper was able to pass on secret information for Schindler to compile his famous lists. After the war, Pemper was the key witness of the prosecution in the 1946 trial against Goth and several other SS officers. The Road to Rescue stands as a historically authentic testimony of one man’s unparalleled courage, wit, defiance, and bittersweet victory over the Nazi regime. ” Subjects: Righteous Gentiles in the Holocaust - Biography.

1st edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo, 20 cm, 17 pages. An early post-Holocaustaddress delivered to the Commonwealth Club of California, at the Palace Hotel, San Francisco, April 5, 1946, by Rabbi Irving F. Reichert of Congregation Emanu-El, San Francisco, opposing Zionism on general principal but calling for Palestine to be an a democratic haven for Jewish Holocaust refugees. This address has been privately printed through the courtesy of a number of friends. He talks about the experience of the Jews in the Holocaust and particularly focuses on Zionism, and the issues that arise. He also clarifies that the Jews are not a nationality nor a nation, and he argues that with the predictions of the low percentage of Jews that would end up in a Jewish state, there won’t be a Jewish nationality even with a Jewish state. He says, “The American Jewish Community today presents a paradox as far as Palestine is concerned. We are hopelessly divided in our views regarding the political future of Palestine. Many of us are unalterably opposed for reasons of deep conviction, to the establishment of a Jewish state. We are, however, completely united in our conviction that as a democratic commonwealth Palestine can and should provide a home for our disinherited and downtrodden fellow Jews who seek its shelter.” SUBJECT(S): The Jewish question.

Edition: First Edition
Binding: Paperback
Original Wrappers. 8vo. 99 pages. 21 cm. First edition. In Russian. A history of the Baranovichi Ghetto and the Koldychevo Camp. “On the eve of the Holocaust, 12, 000 Jews lived in Baranovichi. Under Soviet rule (1939–41) , Jewish community organizations were disbanded and any kind of political or youth activity was forbidden. Some youth groups organized flight to Vilna, which was then part of Lithuania, and from there reached Palestine. The Hebrew Tarbut school became a Russian institution. A Jewish high school did continue to function, however. In the summer of 1940 Jewish refugees from western Poland who had found refuge in Baranovichi after September 1939 were deported to the Soviet interior. When Germans captured the city on June 27, 1941, 400 Jews were kidnapped, leaving no trace. A Judenrat was set up, headed by Joshua Izikzon. The community was forced to pay a fine of five kg. Of gold, ten kg. Of silver, and 1, 000, 000 rubles. The ghetto was fenced off from the outside on Dec. 12, 1941. The ghetto inhabitants suffered great hardship that winter, although efforts were made to alleviate the hunger. The Jewish doctors and their assistants fought to contain the epidemics. On March 4, 1942, the ghetto was surrounded. In a Selektion carried out by the Nazis to separate the "productive" from the "nonproductive", over 3, 000 elderly persons, widows, orphans, etc. , were taken to trenches prepared in advance and murdered. Resistance groups, organized in the ghetto as early as the spring of 1942, collected arms and sabotaged their places of work. Plans for rebellion were laid, but the uprising never came to pass, partly due to German subterfuge. In the second German Aktion on Sept. 22, 1942, about 3, 000 persons were murdered. On Dec. 17, 1942, another Aktion was carried out, in which more than 3, 000 persons were killed near Grabowce. Baranovichi was now declared judenrein . At the end of 1942 Jews were already fighting in groups among the partisans. A few survivors from the ghetto were still in some of the forced labor camps in the district, but most of them were liquidated in 1943. On July 8, 1944, when the city was taken by the Soviet forces, about 150 Jews reappeared from hiding in the forests. Later a few score more returned from the U. S. S. R. ” (EJ 2007) ”Koldychevo Camp (Koldyczewo) , forced labor camp in Belorussia, located 11 miles from Baranovichi, established by the Germans in late 1941. In November 1942 a crematorium was constructed in which some 600 people were incinerated. It later became an extermination camp in which Russians and Polish underground members were interned along with the Jews transferred from the surrounding ghettos of Baranovichi, Nowogrodek, Slonim , and others. Jews were separated from the other prisoners and the camp in the stables of what had once been a farm. Prior to the camp's liquidation on June 29, 1944, more than 22, 000 inmates were murdered and buried in 38 mass graves in and around the camp. A prisoner, Dr. Zelik Levinbrook, supplied medicine to the partisans with the help of a former patient. An active Jewish resistance, headed by Shlomo Kushnir, a former shoemaker, existed in Koldychevo. Its arms supply was meager: two guns, four grenades, and some acid. On the night of March 17, 1944, it succeeded in leading almost all the Jewish inmates out of the camp after killing ten Nazi guards and poisoning the guard dogs. Kushnir committed suicide when he was caught with 25 others. Seventy five prisoners survived. The rest joined the partisans in the forest. ” (EJ 2007) .

This beautifully illustrated book of childrens stories is printed in seven colors of ink. The author of these seven stories in Yiddish was Yuri Suhl, who emigrated from Poland to the United States in the 1920’s, and became well known as a Yiddish poet and childrens writer. His other works included the popular "They Fought Back: The Story of Jewish Resistance in Nazi Europe. " That work was praised as a landmark contribution to Holocaust literature and Suhl spent more than five years documenting it before it was published in 1967. His other works included "Eloquent Crusader: Ernestine Rose, " a biography of the Polish-born feminist, and two autobiographical novels: "One Foot in America" and "Cowboy on a Wooden Horse. " He was also a trustee of the fund set up for the sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

Following World War II, Gropper traveled to Poland to attend the inaugural convention of the World Congress of Intellectuals for Peace of 1948 in Wroclaw. This Yiddish childrens book was printed there, both for an audience of international anti-fascist partisans and survivors gathering to found the World Peace Council, as well as for those survivors living in Wroclaw, one of the largest post-war Jewish communities in Poland for a few years.

Softbound. 8vo. XI, 261 pages. 22 cm. First edition. Poems and fiction by Herman Taube, with a foreword by Elie Wiesel and watercolors by Steffi Rubin. “Herman Taube was born in Lodz, Poland in 1918. Orphaned at an early age, he was brought up by Mirle and Gershon Mandel, his grandparents. Gershon ran a small shop that produced soap and candles. Herman attended a yeshiva (school for study of the Torah) prior to WWII. Gershon hoped his grandson would become a rabbi, but Herman instead began nursing in 1937. Herman was called for duty as a medic in the Polish Army in August 1939. Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, thus marking the start of WWII. The Polish army was defeated within weeks of the blitzkrieg, (lightning war) . The Soviet Union occupied eastern Poland according to the German-Soviet Pact on September 17, 1939. Herman, along with the retreating Polish Army, was captured by the Soviet forces after crossing the Bug River. While officers and those of higher rank were sent to Katyn and later executed, lower ranking soldiers were sent to Siberia, a harsh area of the Soviet Union where gulags (Soviet work camps) were located. German forces invaded the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941. Based on an agreement between the Soviet government and the Polish government in exile, all Polish citizens held in Soviet camps were to be released (in part, to create a Second Polish Army in exile) . Upon his release, Herman went to Uzbekistan to join the Second Polish Army. He worked as a medic in Uzbekistan for two years until his unit moved to the eastern front. In June 1944 Herman was injured when the ambulance he was riding in drove over a land mine. After recuperating Herman was sent to the headquarters of the Second Polish Army, newly stationed in Lublin, the former Lublin/Majdanek concentration camp. Herman worked in the Majdanek hospital, caring for the liberated prisoners who were left behind when the retreating Nazis liquidated the camp. Shortly thereafter Herman was sent to work in a hospital in Pomerania where he worked until the end of the war. After the war Herman married Susan Strauss, a fellow survivor. The two immigrated to the United States in 1947. Herman is the author of more than twenty novels and books of poetry and has worked as a writer and journalist for over 60 years. Herman and Susan live in the Washington, DC area and volunteer at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. ” (USHMM) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Poetry.
