Treblinka, Poland--1942. Daily, thousands of passengers including Bronka and Tchechia arrive at a destination they believe is a resettlement work camp, only to be immediately separated from their families and told to remove their clothing. Within moments, the masses disappear into a long, fenced passageway down the center of the camp called the tube, except for those indiscriminately chosen out of the lines by the SS. While ordered to carefully organize the discarded valuables of the passengers, the young men and women begin to unravel the mysterious truth about Treblinka, yet they are not allowed to ask questions. Only later, when the workers search for their loved ones to no avail do the Nazi’s menacing grins tell them all they need to know--that they must keep working or they will also end up entering the tube. As the sobering truth about Treblinka sinks deeply into the workers’ hearts, a few of the men and women begin to plan a revolt. Based on a magnificent true story, Trains to Treblinka deftly interweaves the lives of several revolt organizers who pledge everything for the chance to burn down the camp and escape into the woods. When the day comes for the uprising, the young workers are barely able to contain their excitement and they risk betraying their own motives under the watchful eyes of the continually distrusting Nazis. This well-researched, inspiring historical book is an authentic look at Treblinka written as a suspense novel. From Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize review, “It may be difficult and heart-wrenching to read the in-depth details about the atrocities that occurred at the Treblinka concentration camp, but this book is hard to put down. Causey presents a powerful linear approach to the arrival of the victims, the losses, the physical and emotional tortures, and the escape attempts. This profoundly memorable story about Treblinka serves as a reminder that every individual victim's name is worth remembering.” Learn about the beauty of hope, the tragedy of war, and the enduring power of the human heart, all in Trains to Treblinka.

The Sonderkommando—the “special squad” of enslaved Jewish laborers who were forced to work in the gas chambers and crematoria of Auschwitz-Birkenau—comprise one of the most fascinating and troubling topics within Holocaust history. As eyewitnesses to and unwilling abettors of the murder of their fellow Jews, they are the object of fierce condemnation even today. Yet it was a group of these seemingly compromised men who carried out the revolt of October 7, 1944, one of the most celebrated acts of Holocaust resistance. This interdisciplinary collection assembles careful investigations into how the Sonderkommando have been represented—by themselves and by others—both during and after the Holocaust.

An important new primary source for Holocaust studies, this unusual memoir contains the recollections of a Holocaust survivor who lived in a small Polish town 55 miles from Warsaw. From his earliest memories of a closely knit community where Jews and Christians lived harmoniously side by side through the horrors of a town torn apart by hatred, Shraga Bielawski details the systematic destruction of Wegrow by the Nazis. How does a town go completely mad? How do neighbors who have attended school together become murderers and victims on opposite sides? What is the process by which an invading army sends innocent civilians to their deaths--leaving only traces of a former civilized culture? Bielawski explores these and similar questions as he chronicles the experiences of his friends and neighbors under the Nazis and shows how he used all the tools of creativity at his disposal in order to survive. Throughout, Bielawski and co-author Louis Liebovich offer historical background and political discussion to place the events of the book in perspective. The reader learns first-hand about life in occupied Poland, the virtual extinction of Jewish culture in that country, and the ways in which the Nazis preyed upon latent anti-Semitism to accomplish their goals. The book also offers some penetrating observations on the nature of bigotry, concluding that it is a disease that must be addressed by both the dominant culture and the minority culture if another Holocaust is to be avoided. Far more than a simple memoir, The Last Jew of Wegrow is a sweeping saga of imagination and perseverance--an enriching educational experience for high school and college students as well as general readers who seek insights into the Holocaust and its roots.

After the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, they quickly began persecuting anyone who was Jewish. Millions were shoved into ghettos and forced to live under the swastika. Death camps were built and something called "Operation Reinhard" was set into motion. Its goal? To murder all the Jews of Poland. The Commandant of Lubizec is a harrowing account of a death camp that never actually existed but easily could have in the Nazi state. It is a sensitive, accurate retelling of a place that went about the business of genocide. Told as a historical account in a documentary style, it explores the atmosphere of a death camp. It describes what it was like to watch the trains roll in, and it probes into the mind of its commandant, Hans-Peter Guth. How could he murder thousands of people each day and then go home to laugh with his children? This is not only an unflinching portrayal of the machinery of the gas chambers, it is also the story of how prisoners burned the camp to the ground and fled into the woods. It is a story of rebellion and survival. It is a story of life amid death. With a strong eye towards the history of the Holocaust, The Commandant of Lubizec compels us to look at these extermination centers anew. It disquiets us with the knowledge that similar events actually took place in camps like Bełzec, Sobibór, and Treblinka. The history of Lubizec, although a work of fiction, is a chillingly blunt distillation of real life events. It asks that we look again at "Operation Reinhard". It brings voice to the silenced. It demands that we bear witness.

This work of non-fiction wants to impart knowledge, encourage reflection, and awaken sympathy. It provides information about the anti-Jewish race politics of National Socialism and the increasingly more difficult effects it had on individual Jews in Fritzlar and its surrounding towns year after year. It reports on the few people who helped those Jews who returned from concentration camps and about the de-Nazification process from 1944 to 1948. Additionally, it documents in both words and pictures the different forms of lasting memorials. This book reminds us not only of past peaceful neighborly coexistence and on the growing contempt and oppression of the Jewish citizens, and their consequent expulsion and terrible murder, but also on personal salvation, and the efforts toward forgiveness and atonement. Photos, gravestone inscriptions, family trees, and lists of names will aid in researching Jewish family histories. Dies Sachbuch will Wissen vermitteln, zum Nachdenken anregen und Mitgefühl erwecken. Es informiert über die antijüdische Rassenpolitik des Nationalsozialismus und deren von Jahr zu Jahr härteren Auswirkungen auf die einzelnen Juden in Fritzlar und seinen Ortsteilen. Es berichtet von den wenigen Helfern, von den 1945 aus den KZs zurückkehrenden Juden und von der Entnazifizierung 1944 bis 1948. Ferner dokumentiert es in Wort und Bild verschiedene Formen dauerhaften Gedenkens. Dies Buch erinnert an friedliches Zusammenleben als Nachbarn, doch auch an zunehmende Verachtung und Verdrängung der jüdischen Mitbürger, schließlich an ihre Vertreibung und schreckliche Ermordung, aber auch an Errettung Einzelner, an Bemühen um Verzeihung und Versöhnung. Fotos, Grabsteininschriften, Stammbäume und Namenslisten helfen bei der Erforschung von jüdischen Familiengeschichten.

When the Allies decided to try German war criminals at the end of World War II they were attempting not only to punish the guilty but also to create a record of what had happened in Europe. This ground-breaking new study shows how Britain and the United States went about inscribing the history of Nazi Germany and the effect their trial and occupation policies had on both long and short term 'memory' in Germany and Britain. Donald Bloxham here examines the actions and trials of German soldiers and policemen, the use of legal evidence, the refractory functions of the courtroom, and Allied political and cultural preconceptions of both 'Germanism' and of German criminality. His evidence shows conclusively that the trials were a failure: the greatest of all 'crimes against humanity' - the 'final solution of the Jewish question' - was largely written out of history in the post-war era and the trials failed to transmit the breadth of German criminality. Finally, with reference to the historiography of the Holocaust, Genocide on Trial illuminates the function of the trials in perpetuating misleading generalizations about the course of the Holocaust and the nature of Nazism.

The ghost of the Holocaust is ever present in Israel, in the lives and nightmares of the survivors and in the absence of the victims. In this compelling and disturbing analysis, Idith Zertal, a leading member of the new generation of revisionist historians in Israel, considers the ways Israel has used the memory of the Holocaust to define and legitimize its existence and politics. Drawing on a wide range of sources, the author exposes the pivotal role of the Holocaust in Israel's public sphere, in its project of nation building, its politics of power and its perception of the conflict with the Palestinians. She argues that the centrality of the Holocaust has led to a culture of death and victimhood that permeates Israel's society and self-image. For the updated paperback edition of the book, Tony Judt, the world-renowned historian and political commentator, has contributed a foreword in which he writes of Zertal's courage, the originality of her work, and the 'unforgiving honesty with which she looks at the moral condition of her own country'.
