The politics of genocide : the Holocaust in Hungary by Randolph L Braham( Book )

55 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in English and German and held by 1,707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive history of the Holocaust in Hungary, relating also to the history of Hungarian Jewry from its emancipation in 1849 to the present. The first anti-Jewish laws in the 1920s and the increase of antisemitism in the 1930s were followed by persecution, forced military occupation by the Nazis, ghettoization, and deportation. Discusses the events of the Holocaust according to six territorial zones: the Carpathians and the northeastern parts of Hungary; northern Transylvania; northern Hungary; southeastern Hungary; western Hungary; Budapest and environs. Describes the fate of the Jews in many locations. Relates, inter alia, to the military labor service units, the Jewish Council, Jewish rescue operations, the Nazis' actions and the cooperation of the Hungarian authorities, and the actions of the Arrow Cross, as well as international interventions and rescue actions of the Christian Churches
The Nazis' last victims : the Holocaust in Hungary by Randolph L Braham( )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nazis' Last Victims articulates and historically scrutinizes both the uniqueness and the universality of the Holocaust in Hungary, a topic often minimized in general works on the Holocaust. The result of the 1994 conference at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on the fiftieth anniversary of the deportation of Hungarian Jewry, this anthology examines the effects on Hungary as the last country to be invaded by the Germans."--BOOK JACKET. "The Jewish community in Hungary remained relatively intact throughout most of the Holocaust period until just months before the end of World War II. The Nazis' Last Victims questions what Hungarians knew of their impending fate and examines the heightened sense of tension and haunting drama in Hungary, where the largest single killing process of the Holocaust period occurred in the shortest amount of time."--Jacket
The Holocaust in Hungary : fifty years later by Randolph L Braham( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Hungarian and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Holocaust in Hungary represented a unique chapter in the singular history of the Final Solution of the "Jewish question" in Europe. In the fifth year of the Second World War Hungary still had a Jewish population of approximately 800,000. Although this large and relatively intact Jewish community was deprived of its basic rights as citizens, had suffered close to 62,000 casualties, had been confronted with the hardships of discrimination, and had endured the vicissitudes of a military-related labor service system, it continued to enjoy the physical protection of the aristocratic-conservative regime that ruled Hungary until the German occupation on March 19, 1944. How was all this possible? And if all this was possible until March 1944, why could it not continue for a few more months? Was it really inevitable that hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews would, within a few months, become victims of the gas chambers of Auschwitz? Could the Holocaust in Hungary have been averted and who were responsible for the violent deaths of over a half a million Hungarian Jews in the ghettos, on the deportation trains, in the extermination and concentration camps, during the death marches, and the mass shootings into the Danube? Starting from these difficult questions, the present volume, edited by Randolph L. Braham, distinguished professor emeritus of Political Science at the City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and Andras Kovacs, professor and director of Jewish Studies Program at CEU, offers readers the most recent scholarship on the history and memory of the Holocaust in Hungary"--Back cover

The Vatican and the Holocaust : the Catholic Church and the Jews during the Nazi era( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume deals with the attitude and reactions of the Vatican and the Christian churches to the persecution and destruction of the Jews of Europe during the Nazi era. The linkage between the long history of Christian anti-Judaism and the racial neo-pagan anti-Semitism of the Nazis constitutes one of the most controversial chapters in the history of the Holocaust. It became a hotly debated ecclesiastical - historical issue after the end of World War II, inducing the Vatican and the Catholic episcopates in many parts of the world to begin confronting it honestly and courageously."--Jacket

Perspectives on the Holocaust by Randolph L Braham( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The number of books and articles dealing with various aspects of World War II has increased at a phenomenal rate since the end of the hostilities. Perhaps no other chapter in this bloodiest of all wars has received as much attention as the Holo caust. The Nazis' program for the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question"--This ideologically conceived, diabolical plan for the physicalliquidation of European Jewry - has emerged as a subject of agonizing and intense interest to laypersons and scholars alike. The centrality of the Holocaust in the study of the Third Reich and the Nazi phenomenon is almost universally recognized. The source materials for many of the books published during the immediate postwar period were the notes and diaries kept by many camp and ghetto dwellers, who were sustained during their unbelievable ordeal by the unusual drive to bear witness. These were supplemented after the liberation by a large number of personal narratives collected from survivors alI over Europe. Understandably, the books published shortly after the war ended were mainly martyrological and lachrymological, reflecting the trauma of the Holocaust at the personal, individual level. These were soon followed by a considerable number of books dealing with the moral and religious questions revolving around the role ofthe lay and spiritual leaders of the doomed Jewish communities, especially those involved in the Jewish Councils, as well as God' s responsibility toward the "chosen people
Contemporary views on the Holocaust by Randolph L Braham( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the second in a series of studies published under the auspices of the Institute for Holocaust Studies of the Graduate School and U niver sity Center of The City University of New York. Like the first book, it is an outgrowth of the lectures and special studies sponsored by the institute during the 1981-82 and 1982-83 academic years. This volume is divided into five parts. Part I, Ethics and the Holocaust, contains a pioneering investigation of one of the most neglected areas in Holocaust studies. Francine Klagsbrun, a well-known writer and popular lecturer, provides an erudite overview of the value of life in Jewish thought and tradition. With full understanding of the talmudic scholars' position on Jewish ethics and using concrete examples of the life-and death dilemmas that confronted many Jews in their concentration camp experiences, Klagsbrun provides dramatic evidence of the triumph of moral and ethical principles over the forces of evil during the Holocaust, this darkest period in Jewish history. The next two chapters, grouped under the heading The Allies and the Holocaust, deal with the failure of the Western Allies to respond to the desperate needs of the persecuted Jews of Europe during the Second World War. The first is by Professor Bela Vago, an authority on the Holocaust and East Central European history at the University of Haifa

Genocide and retribution : the Holocaust in Hungarian-ruled northern Transylvania by Randolph L Braham( Book )

10 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the dark years of the Holocaust, many of the millions of labor and concentration camp victims were sustained in their struggle for survival by the hope that their tormentors would not escape retribution. This expectation was reinforced by the warnings issued by the statesmen of the anti-Axis coalition and the declarations of the United States, Great Britain, and the USSR. Shortly after the cessation of hostilities, war crimes trials were indeed initiated in all parts of liberated Europe. Many of the accused were indicted, among other things, for crimes committed against Jews. People's tribunals for the prosecution of war crimes and crimes against humanity were also estab lished in Romania, a country that extricated itself from the Axis Alliance on 23 August 1944. The Romanian people's tribunals were set up and operated under the provi sions of Law No. 312, issued by the Ministry ofJustice on 21 April 1945. One ofthese tribunals was established in Cluj (Kolozsvar) and entrusted primarily with the prosecution of those involved in the violation of the rights of people living in Northern Transylvania, the part of the province that was transferred to Hungary under the terms of the Second Vienna Award (August 1940) and which remained under Hungarian rule from early September 1940 until its liberation by Soviet-Romanian forces in the fall of 1944. The crimes committed against the citizens of Northern Transylvania both within and outside the province were the subject of two major trials
