The Holocaust Memorial Museum reveals and traces the transformation of ancient Jewish symbols, rituals, archetypes and narratives deployed in these sites. Demonstrating how cloaking the 'secular' history of the Holocaust in sacred garb, memorial museums generate redemptive yet conflicting visions of the meaning and utility of Holocaust memory.

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.

This monumental seven-volume encyclopedia, prepared by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, examines the universe of camps and ghettos)—more than 40,000 in all—that the Nazis and their allies operated, from Norway to North Africa and from France to Russia. Volume III describes sites under the control of states that aligned themselves with Nazi Germany, as allies, satellite countries, or independent collaborationist regimes. For a variety of reasons, France, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, and other such states each undertook the persecution, and often the murder, of people it considered undesirable or threatening. Such target groups included Jews, who were often killed directly or handed over to the Germans. Other victims spanned any number of ethnic or national groups, or political or military opponents. Each state created its own unique mix of detention sites under a variety of agencies, but all with goals that mirrored those of Nazi Germany. From the far north of Finland to France’s west African colonies, this network of sites did its work with little or no input from the Germans. This volume, with its descriptions of the individual sites and broad introductions to the regimes that governed them, adds to our understanding of a system that was truly European in scale, and not solely a German undertaking.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is undoubtedly one of the late twentieth century's most profound architectural statements. Far more than a museum, it is a living institution dedicated to research and teaching as well as to contemplation and commemoration. Located in Washington, DC, the building is articulated in brick and limestone at a scale appropriate to its prominent position off the National Mall; but, although linked to its neighbouring buildings, the museum subtly disengages itself from the city. Inside, the Hall of Witness forms a three-storey arrival, a circulation space and central void preparing the visitor for the journey through the museum. Bridges and towers evoke an industrial past so that architecture, engineering and museology merge inseparably, while the Hall of Remembrance is a calm, abstract space of contemplation to end the museum experience.

This book focuses on the spring of 1945 when the Allied advance into Germany uncovered numerous concentration camps and later when the Allied occupying forces established assembly centers to temporarily house survivors awaiting new destinations. For many of these holocaust survivors, liberation was both a release from terror and the beginning a new phase of nothingness and homelessness.
