Matthaus, Jurgen, ed.
In this study of one Holocaust survivor's testimony, Matthaus compiles the perspectives of many scholars who knew Helen "Zippi" Spitzer Tichauer to create a comprehensive narrative of her story, and to examine how we remember and interpret individual experiences of the Holocaust.
In this book Michman studies the emergence of the Jewish ghettos for 1939 to 1944. This book impacts overall understanding of the anti-Jewish policies of Nazi Germany.
Filip Müller came to Auschwitz with one of the earliest transports from Slovakia in April 1942 and began working in the gassing installations and crematoria in May. He was still alive when the gassings ceased in November 1944. He saw multitudes come and disappear; by sheer luck he survived. Muller is neither a historian nor a psychologist; he is a source — one of the few prisoners who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell about it.
Norwood, Stephen H.
In this book Norwood explores the ways in which America's academic elite displayed their complicity in Nazi Germany's efforts to improve its image in the United States during the 1930s.
