Editorial Reviews

Review

"The editors correctly state that no other work provides the same level of detail and supporting material about the Nazi ghetto and concentration camp system.... This user-friendly reference work belongs on every library bookshelf. Essential." -- CHOICE

(CHOICE)


"An outstanding work of scholarship that marks a major achievement in studies of the Shoah. Martin Dean and his expert contributors draw on archival records, survivor testimonies, and publications in countless languages to produce vivid accounts of hundreds of the Holocaust sites now known as 'ghettos.' The results both confirm and unsettle conventional wisdom.... The details are unforgettable: a ghetto that consisted of only two houses; an orphanage known as a 'children's cage'; Jews who went on foot from their homes to the killing center of Treblinka." ―Doris L. Bergen, author of War and Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust



"[A] staggering achievement.... at around 2,000 pages it’s an even more impressive compendium of scholarly research and editorial enterprise than Volume I... Without the efforts of this consortium of international contributors, most of these places... might have disappeared from historical memory and slipped into oblivion." ―The Jewish Daily Forward



"This magnificent collective effort, uniting the research and expertise of leading scholars from around the world, provides a fundamental new reference for the history of the Holocaust. Anyone who wishes to understand the variety of Jewish experience in the ghettos and the scale of the destruction of a whole European world must consult this encyclopedia." ―Timothy Snyder, author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin



"An essential addition to any public or academic library with significant collections of Holocaust literature or Jewish genealogy." ―Jewish Libraries Newsletter



"The massive two-volume set... focuses specifically on the ghettos of Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe. It stands without doubt as the definitive reference guide on this topic in the world today. This is not hyperbole, but simply a recognition of the meticulous collaborative research that went into assembling such a massive collection of information.... Every serious scholar of the Holocaust in the East and every academic library should have this encyclopedia on hand." ―Holocaust and Genocide Studies



"Using a variety of scholarly and archival materials, the editors provide a very detailed analysis and history of the events that took place in the towns, villages, and cities of German-occupied Eastern Europe.... A rich source of information, this will make an excellent addition to reference collections." ―Library Journal



"A meticulously researched account of Nazi ghettos in Eastern Europe. The editors have mined all possible resources in many languages and presented their findings in succinct, lucid language. The production of the volume is exemplary. It will serve as the standard reference work on the subject." ―Zvi Gitelman, University of Michigan



"This user-friendly reference work belongs on every library bookshelf." ―CHOICE: Social & Behavioral Sciences

Volume Two (as was Volume One) is the most indepth study of the Holocaust and its consequences ever written. I look forward to the remaining five volumes. A must have in any serious historian's library of this period.
