Resistance : the Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Israel Gutman( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 19, 1943, thousands of Nazi troops were given the order to remove all Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, a few square blocks sheltering the remnants of the half million or more Jewish citizens of Poland's capital, to the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz. They were to kill those who resisted. A few hundred of the trapped Jews, mostly teenagers, armed only with pistols, Molotov cocktails, and a few light machine guns, vowed to fight back. Resistance is the full story of the uprising and the events leading to it, told by a survivor of the battle who is now a world-renowned Israeli scholar of the Holocaust. Warsaw in the 1920s and 1930s was the home of Europe's largest and most vibrant Jewish community. It included the rich, the poor, and the middle class; casual assimilationists and ardent Zionists; representatives of the full spectrum of political and religious factions. Then came the German onslaught of ruthless violence against the Jews--isolation and starvation amid desperation and disease--then deportations. As the ghetto walls rose, hundreds of thousands were rounded up and sent to Treblinka. But resistance began to take shape, and when the final attack order came, the ghetto fighters stood ready. Includes excerpts from diaries, letters, and other documents of the period

16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the monumental 7-volume encyclopaedia that the present work inaugurates will make available--in one place for the first time--detailed information about the universe of camps, sub-camps, and ghettos established and operated by the Nazis - altogether some 20,000 sites, from Norway to North Africa and from France to Russia. This volume covers three groups of camps: the early camps established in the first year of Hitler's rule, the major concentration camps with their constellations of sub-camps that operated under the control of the SS-Business Administration Main Office, and youth camps. Overview essays precede entries on individual camps and sub-camps. Each entry provides basic information about the purpose of the site; the prisoners, guards, working and living conditions; and key events in its history. Material drawn from personal testimonies helps convey the character of each site, while source citations for each entry provide a path to additional information
Jewish forced labor under the Nazis : economic needs and racial aims, 1938-1944 by Wolf Gruner( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forced labor was a key feature of Nazi anti-Jewish policy and shaped the daily life of almost every Jewish family in occupied Europe. For the first time, this book systematically describes the implementation of forced labor for Jews in Germany, Austria, the Protectorate, and the various occupied Polish territories. As early as the end of 1938, compulsory labor for Jews had been introduced in Germany and annexed Austria by the labor administration. Similar programs subsequently were established by civil administrations in the German-occupied Czech and Polish territories. At its maximum extent, more than one million Jewish men and women toiled for private companies and public builders, many of them in hundreds of now often-forgotten special labor camps. This study refutes the widespread thesis that compulsory work was organized only by the SS, and that exploitation was only an intermediate tactic on the way to mass murder or, rather, that it was only a facet in the destruction of the Jews."--Publisher's website
Case closed : Holocaust survivors in postwar America by Beth B Cohen( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following the end of World War II, it was widely reported by the media that Jewish refugees found lives filled with opportunity and happiness in America. However, for most of the 140,000 Jewish Displaced Persons (DPs) who immigrated to the United States from Europe in the years between 1946 and 1954, it was a much more complicated story." "Case Closed challenges the prevailing optimistic perception of the lives of Holocaust survivors in postwar America by scrutinizing their first years through the eyes of those who lived it. Cohen explores how the Truman Directive allowed the American Jewish community to handle the financial and legal responsibility for survivors, and shows what assistance the community offered the refugees and what help was not available."--BOOK JACKET

Sobibor : a history of a Nazi death camp by Jules Schelvis( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobibor is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there." "Sent in June 1943 to Sobibor, where his wife and family were murdered, Jules Schelvis has written the first book-length, fully documented account of the camp. He details the creation of the killing centre, its personnel, the use of railways, selections, forced labour, gas chambers, escape attempts and the historic uprising." "In documenting this part of Holocaust history, this well-researched account advances our knowledge and understanding of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the European Jews."--Jacket

Preserving memory : the struggle to create America's Holocaust Museum by Edward Tabor Linenthal( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the moment it opened on April 22, 1993, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has captivated the American public with its innovative and affecting representation of one of the century's most troubling events. In its first year, it attracted nearly two million visitors -- at the rate of five thousand a day -- each of whom walked away with a lasting impression of awe in the face of the unimaginable. This honest, lively, and readable story of its creation portrays the emotionally complex and intellectually complicated struggles surrounding the birth of the museum. Striking in its tone and subtle observation, Preserving Memory tells the remarkable story of the fifteen-year struggle surrounding the project. Beset by endless obstacles, but imbued with the determination to create a worthy memorial to the pain and devastation of the "Final Solution," the museum's creators succeeded in making a monument to the extremes of human goodness and evil. - Jacket flap
