  3. Poland, Ministerstwo Spraw Zagranicznych; THE MASS EXTERMINATION OF JEWS IN GERMAN OCCUPIED POLAND: NOTE ADDRESSED TO THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE UNITED NATIONS ON DECEMBER 10TH, 1942, AND OTHER DOCUMENTS. London, New York; Published On Behalf Of The Polish Ministry Of Foreign Affairs By Hutchinson & Co. , [1943]. Stapled as issued in original wrappers. 8vo. 16 pages. 22 cm. National Government Publication. Printed in red and black ink. One of the first official announcements of the Holocaust. Jan Karski-Kozielski, a Polish Government emissary in occupied Poland, bribed his way into a German concentration camp and witnessed the mass extermination of Jews. "In November 1942 he arrived in London to report on German atrocities in occupied Poland. He reported to the Polish Government, Szmul Zagielboin and Ignacy Schwartzbart (Jewish members of the Polish National Council), Anthony Eden (the British Foreign Minister) and the British parliament. In America, he reported in Washington to President Roosevelt and in New York to the International Jewish Council. As a result, the Allied governments issued a statement that the people responsible for atrocities would be punished. On 10 December 1942, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a note to Allied and neutral governments on the mass extermination of Jews in German-occupied Poland and requested retaliatory bombing of German cities. Both the British and American governments refused to act" (Andrzej Dabrowa, "Breaking the Enigma code: Polish contribution to victory"). Lucy Dawidowicz cites the book in her now classic work, "The Holocaust and the Historians" (Harvard, 1983, p. 167) , as an example of the Polish Government in Exile's statements on the murder of Jews in Poland. Indeed, the report could not be more explicit in its description of the horrors nor in its plea for help: "The new methods of mass slaughter applied during the last few months confirm the fact that the German authorities aim with systematic deliberation at the total extermination of the Jewish population of Poland and of the many thousands of Jews whom the German authorities have departed to Poland from Western and Central European countries and from the German Reich itself. The Polish Government consider it their duty to bring to the knowledge of the Governments of all civilised countries the following fully authenticated information received from Poland during recent weeks, which indicates all too plainly the new methods of extermination adopted by the German authorities." The report then elaborates: "The actual process of deportation was carried out with appalling brutality. At the appointed hour on each day the German police cordoned off a block of houses selected for clearance, entered the back yard and fired their guns at random, as a signal for all to leave their homes and assemble in the yard. Anyone attempting to escape or to hide was killed on the spot. No attempt was made by the Germans to keep families together. Wives were torn from their husbands and children from their parents. Those who appeared frail or infirm were carried straight to the Jewish cemetery to be killed and buried there. On the average 50-100 people were disposed of in this way daily. After the contingent was assembled, the people were packed forcibly into cattle trucks to the number of 120 in each truck, which had room for forty. The trucks were then locked and sealed. The Jews were suffocating for lack of air. The floors of the trucks were covered with quicklime and chlorine. As far as is known, the trains were despatched to three localities - Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor, to what the reports describe as 'Extermination camps.' The very method of transport was deliberately calculated to cause the largest possible number of casualties among the condemned Jews. It is reported that on arrival in camp the survivors were stripped naked and killed by various means, including poison gas and electrocution. The dead were interred in mass graves dug by machinery."

  9. (Madagascar) Stoll, Samuel J. AN APPEAL TO JEWISH REASON. [New York?]; S. J. Stoll, 1944. Original wrappers, hole punched bound in period folder. 4to. 23 pages. 29 cm. First edition. Both a polemic and detailed report, this piece presents moral arguments and statistics proposing the possibility of Jewish settlement in Madagascar. Written three years after the abandonment of the Nazi’s Madagascar resettlement plan. “This is not a rebellion against Zionism. The writer is a Zionist. Nor is it a rebellion against Palestine. The Jewish pioneers have convincingly demonstrated how truly Utopian Palestine can become in Jewish hands. It is a rebellion against a world situation which is not of our making and which cannot be unmade by us, which in the first instance presents us with a “Jewish problem” too enormous to be solved in a dozen Palestines, and then holds Palestine out to us as a solution to that problem, and finally snatches Palestine away from us when we reach out to take it. […] To the total war that is being waged against us on every front there can be but one answer: total Jewish victory. Let us by a single master stroke confound our enemies and rise from slavery and Ghetto and concentration camp to freedom and sovereign statehood and world power. We can do this and must and will do it in Madagascar. And in so doing we shall enjoy the first installment of sweet vengeance: the partial dismemberment of Germany.” (Page 16) Subjects: Jews -- Relocation -Madagascar. Jews -- Government policy -- Europe. OCLC lists only 1 copy worldwide (Harvard). Some shelf wear to folder, internally crisp and bright. Very good + condition. Very Scarce and Very Important.

  11. [Jewish Central Information Office]. THE GERMAN POGROM, NOVEMBER 1938: AN ACCOUNT OF FACTS. [Amsterdam; Jewish Central Information Office], [1939]. Hole punched in period folder. 4to. [various pagination]. 27 cm. First edition. Extremely early report outlining the horrors of Kristallnacht and its aftermath through personal accounts collected by the Jewish Central Information Office. “The following reports, based upon truthful observations, and trustworthy accounts, by eye-witnesses, provide no more than a cursory view of the German November Pogrom. What really did happen, is worse by far than anything described in these pages. Even to this day it has not been possible as yet to write a comprehensive account, giving exact figures, because the Jews of Germany, even those that have already left the country cannot be moved to speak, for fear of retaliation.” (Page [1]) Subjects: German Pogrom – November, 1938. OCLC lists 1 copy worldwide. (Tel Aviv Univ.) Hole punched report in period folder. Pages have light age toning. Covers have some tears. Unobtrusive period Jewish institutional stamp.

  13. [Nazi Pro-Zionist Millenialist Tract] Cohen, Abraham [Kurt Reiss]. FLUCH UND UNENTRINNBARES GESCHICK DER JUDEN. Saaz C. S. R. (Czech Republic), Kurt Reiss, 1935. Original printed wrappers. 4to. 11 pages. 30cm. In German. Compact tabloid format internally, with broadsheet printed covers. Title translates as “The Curse and Inescapable Destiny of the Jews.” Written by Kurt Reiss, under the pseudonym Abraham Cohen. This Antisemitic, millenarian polemic situates itself alongside the numerous Antisemitic conspiracy theories clinging to the fringes of early Nazi propaganda, a kind of millenialist Nazi-Zionism that calls for the Jews to be returned to Palestine to bring about the second coming of Jesus. In this piece, Reiss celebrates Hitler as “the latest confirmation“ that the Jews are the “chosen people”, and sees Hitler as a “guide” and “shepherd” that will prevent the assimilation of the Jewish people and help bring them to Palestine to facilitate the final “salvation”. “Kurt [Reiss] left school at the age of 15 and developed an interest in religion. He believed that the Jews should recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah. He also attempted to secure patents for mechanical inventions. Kurt convinced the family to emigrate to Canada. According to a family member Kurt suffered from mental illness. He was unable to work and spent his days writing notes about his daily activities and his religious ideas. His sister Lola always took care of him.” (Leo Baeck Institute) OCLC lists 3 copies worldwide. (Yeshiva Univ., National Libr. Of the Czech Republic, Natl. Libr. Of Germany) Some age toning and light shelf wear. Text clean and bright. Very good condition. Unusual and an important example (HOLO2-112-2) (ID #32684) $200.00.

Spiral bound leaves, xerographic production as issued. 4to. Ii, 117pages. 28 cm. First edition. Presented to Dr. Nathan M. Kaganoff April, 1971. A detailed examination of the response of Jewish communities in New York City and Boston to overt and increasingly politicized antisemitism during the late 1930’s through the 1940’s. “This study begins by describing the incidents of overt anti-Semitism in two specific places at a particular time, and by investigating the Jewish response to them. This is followed by evaluation of the role of public opinion within the Boston and New York Jewish communities and that of the non-Jewish press in pressuring Mayor LA Guardia of New York City and Governor Saltonstall of Massachusetts to take action against the assaults on Jewish children.” (Introduction) “Zvi Ganin is the author of ‘Truman, American Jewry, and Israel, 1945-1949, ’ and ‘Kiryat Hayyim: Experiment in an Urban Utopia (in Hebrew) ’ and has written extensively on American Jewish and Israeli history.

Claire writes about her struggle obtaining immigration papers, the care of her family and many friends, and the harrowing voyage to Australia through mine infested waters. “Years ago I completed our Memoirs 1938/1940 in the German language. However after I left the Griesbach-Greybrook Family Tree to future generations, I would like that for all times it may be known WHY, WHEN and from WHERE our family came to Australia. There are so many Australians of German Descent, who know practically nothing about their forefathers. So I translated the Memoirs from German into English to the best of my ability. It is my ardent desire that this book and the Family Tree from generation to generation will always be passed on to the eldest son of the Greybrook family.” (Foreword) Subjects: Concentration camp inmates -- Germany -- Sachsenhausen (Brandenburg) Deportation -- Germany.

    Hitler's "Smoking Gun" Against the Jews

     

  25. Kaufman, Theodore N. GERMANY MUST PERISH!. Newark, N. J.; Argyle Press, 1941. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 96 pages. 19 cm. Second edition. Map drawn by Kaufman, on inside back cover titled, “Map Showing Possible Dissection of Germany and Apportionment of Its Territory.” Second edition of “Germany Must Perish!” in illustrated wrappers with media pull quotes on the back cover from Time Magazine, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Philadelphia Record. After accusations by the Nazis that the book was partly responsible for the eviction of Jews in Hanover, Germany the book was reprinted and widely reviewed in the United States. Kaufman steadfastly defended his thesis against the doubt and fear regarding its impact. An interview with Kaufman from the September 26, 1941 Canadian Jewish Chronicle reads, “’My book, ’ he said, ‘is a voice of doom to the Germans. Can you imagine what they think when they read in their own language – and Germany Must Perish is translated into German, you know – that all Germans will be sterilized? Ha, they are afraid! That’s why they write about the book. It hit home. ’ […] ‘Jews must come out into the open and fight this evil. Do you know that I risked my life by signing my name to this book? But we cannot afford to compromise. Germany and Germanism need not have anti-Semistims for a scapegoat. The next Fuehrer won’t have anti-Semitism, as there won’t be enough Jews in Germany. But those Germans will find some sort of whipping boy, unless we lick Germany and eradicate her from the face of the earth. ’” Initially self-published and obscure, the anti-German book became a central strategic piece for infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels referenced the book throughout World War II claiming it as proof of a Jewish threat to the Nazis, writing in “his diary August 3, [1941], ‘He really could not have done it better and more advantageously for us if he had written the book to order. I will have this book distributed in millions of copies in Germany, above all on the front, and will write a preface and afterword myself. It will be most instructive for every German man and for every German woman to see what would happen to the German people if, as in November 1918, a sign of weakness were given. ’” (Herf, page 112, “The Jewish Enemy”) However this mass publication plan never came to fruition, because Goebbels “feared copyright problems. The U. S. Was still not in the war, and he worried that the U. S. Might retaliate by stripping German works in the U. S. Of copyright protection.” (Bytwerk, 2012) Instead, edited and editorialized selections of the book were published in the widely circulated Nazi pamphlet DAS KRIEGSZIEL DER WELTPLUTOKRATIE alongside claims “that Kaufman was a close associate of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a member of his Brain Trust, and that Roosevelt himself had dictated some of Kaufman’s words.” (Bytwerk, 2012) Subjects: World War, 1939-1945. Kaufman, Theodore N.

  27. Diewerge, Wolfgang; Joseph Goebbels. DAS KRIEGSZIEL DER WELTPLUTOKRATIE: DOKUMENTARISCHE VERÖFFENTLICHUNG ZU DEM BUCH DES PRÄSIDENTEN DER AMERIKANISCHEN FRIEDENSGESELLSCHAFT THEODORE NATHAN KAUFMAN. "DEUTSCHLAND MUSS STERBEN" ("GERMANY MUST PERISH") VON WOLFGANG DIEWERGE. Berlin; NSDAP, 1941. Original Wrappers. 4to. 31 pages. 28 cm. First edition. “The war aims of the world plutocracy…” is a pamphlet written by Wolfgang Diewerge (1906-1977), a Nazi propagandist in Joseph Goebbels' Reich Ministry for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. “This pamphlet is one of the more astonishing propaganda productions of the Third Reich. Theodore N. Kaufman was the 31-year old owner of a theatrical ticket agency in Newark, New Jersey who published at his own expense a 100-page book titled Germany Must Perish! In March, 1941. It called for the sterilization of the German population and the dismemberment of Germany, with its land being turned over to neighboring states. The book received no serious attention in the U. S., but the Nazis discovered it in July 1941. They played it up big, claiming that Kaufman was a close associate of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a member of his Brain Trust, and that Roosevelt himself had dictated some of Kaufman’s words. Late in September 1941, this pamphlet by Wolfgang Diewerge appeared in an edition, according to Goebbels, of five million. Goebbels had originally wanted to translate Kaufman’s whole pamphlet into German, but feared copyright problems. The U. S. Was still not in the war, and he worried that the U. S. Might retaliate by stripping German works in the U. S. Of copyright protection. Goebbels himself wrote the last page of the pamphlet, but did not add his name, since he preferred Diewerge’s pamphlet to seem ‘unofficial. ’ A month after publication, the Nazis released a four-page flyer to remind Germans of Kaufman’s plan. Diewerge claims the Kaufman’s book appeared at about the same time as the July 1941 meeting between Roosevelt and Churchill on the presidential yacht Potomac, though the first edition was actually published in March 1941. Kaufman rather enjoyed the publicity, and put out a paperback edition after the Nazi furor. Kaufman remained a mainstay of German propaganda for the remainder of the war, his last major appearance coming in a late-1944 pamphlet titled Never!, which collected every manner of Allied threat against Germany. ”(Bytwerk, 2012).

Each page contains 3 or 4 pictures.

The desire to bring back our memories of Jewish Settlements which drowned in torrents of Jewish Blood. May the world have this knowledge and ponder on it. When words are too weakened too poor to convey the destruction and extermination of Jewish life, may these pictures found by accident on arrested SS soldiers, speak for themselves of the bestiality which will forever bring shame on human kind.

Thereupon, the Polish government-in-exile sent a note on this subject to allied governments (May 3, 1941). Also in 1941, the Polish Ministry of Information in London published a booklet on the persecution of Jews in Poland, entitled ‘Bestiality Unknown in Any Previous Record of History’ and based on information received from occupied Poland. In January 1942, the Ministry issued another publication, ‘The New German Order in Poland. ’ Both publications created a stir throughout the allied world, which after 1941 could no longer plead ignorance of the persecution of Jews in Poland.” ("The Polish Underground State: A Guide to the Underground, 1939-1945" Stefan Korbonski) Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 - Poland.

Contains extensive photographs and maps in both color and black and white. “The Holocaust Chronicle, written and fact-checked by top scholars, recounts the long, complex, anguishing story of the most terrible crime of the 20th century. A massive, oversized hardcover of more than 750 pages, The Holocaust Chronicle: A History in Words and Pictures is an excitingly unique, not for-profit endeavor that is a personal project of the publisher, Louis Weber, C. E. O. Of Chicago-based Publications International, Ltd. ‘As a book publisher, I am in a unique position to create this ambitious project, ’ Weber says. The son of Polish Jews who settled in America in the 1920s, Weber conceived The Holocaust Chronicle in order to give something back to the Jewish community, and to bring the truth of the Holocaust to as many people as possible. The mission of The Holocaust Chronicle is to report the facts, clearly and free of bias or agenda. Featured are more than 2000 photographs selected after intensive research in the collections of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D. C. And Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, as well as other archives and private collections located around the world. Many of these images are in full color and most are published in book form for the first time. The photographs chronicle the Holocaust in starkly visual terms, capturing victims and perpetrators alike, as well as Allied leaders and the multitude of peripheral figures. Caption-text is detailed, and rich with facts and human interest. The books 3000-item timeline of Holocaust-related events is unprecedented in its scope and ambition. Spanning the years 1000 B. C. To 1999 A. D., the timeline pinpoints deportations, atrocities, and important developments in the Nazis Final Solution, as well as individual acts of cruelty, compassion, and heroic Jewish resistance. Illustrated chapter-opener essays place the most important years of the Holocaust and its immediate aftermath, 1933-1946, into sharp perspective. Nearly 300 sidebars detail significant people, places, issues, and events. More than 30 full-color, specially commissioned maps show the reader where events took place. The sentiments and hatreds that gave rise to the Holocaust were not confined to the 12 years of Adolf Hitlers Thousand-Year Reich. The books illustrated prologue surveys the antisemitism that was expressed over many centuries in Europe as bloody pogroms, exclusionary laws, and other persecution. The illustrated epilogue documents the long, painful healing process that has lasted for generations and may never be completed.” (Publisher’s description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Chronology.

Unlike many pictorial and documentary treatments of the Holocaust, it is not a compendium of terrifying photographs of death camp horrors or of secret documents culled from the Nazi archives. Rather, it is a collection of public materials – materials seen and read by the man in the street in Germany, throughout occupied Europe, and all over the world; and expressly designed by the Nazi propaganda machine and its non-German collaborators to prepare public opinion to accept Julius Streicher’s slogan that “the Jew must disappear.” As demonstrated by the reproductions gathered in this volume, this vile message was transmitted through movies, theatrical productions, exhibitions, wall posters, pamphlets newspapers, magazines, and all other public-information media. Tens of millions of people were exposed to this message day after day, and surely one imagines, they must have known about the fate of the Jews. It is hoped that this volume will serve as a reminder to the civilized world that genocide does not occur overnight.” (Dust jacket) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) --Pictorial works.

Catalog of two exhibitions, Return to Vilna I and Return to Vilna II, held between 31 August and 20 November, 2002 at Pucker Gallery, Boston, Mass. With 67 full color illustrations. Samuel Bak “was born in Vilna. A few years later the area was incorporated into the independent republic of Lithuania. He was eight when the Germans occupied the city. Bak began painting while still a child and, prompted by the well-known Yiddish poet Abraham Sutzkever, held his first exhibition (in the Vilna ghetto) in 1942 at the age of nine. From the ghetto the family was sent to a labor camp on the outskirts of the city. Bak's father managed to save his son by dropping him in a sack out of a ground floor window of the warehouse where he was working; he was met by a maid and brought to the house where his mother was hiding. His father was shot by the Germans in July 1944, a few days before Soviet troops liberated the city. His four grandparents had earlier been executed at the killing site outside Vilna called Ponary. After the war, the young Bak continued painting at the Displaced Persons camp in Landsberg, Germany (1945–48), where he also studied painting in Munich. In 1948, he and his mother immigrated to Israel, where he studied for a year at the Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. After fulfilling his military service, he spent three years (1956–59) at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He then moved to Rome (1959–66), returned to Israel (1966–74), and lived for a time in New York City (1974–77). There followed further years in Israel and Paris, then a long stay in Switzerland (1984–93). From 1993 Bak lived and worked outside Boston, in Weston, Massachusetts.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Bak, Samuel - Exhibitions. Holocaust Art - Vilna. OCLC lists 21 copies.

With 19 illustrations, including photographs of Natan Korzen and examples of his works (portraiture, some village scenes). With an introduction from Melech Rawicz (1893-1976), a yiddish writer, part of “Khalastre”. “Nathan Korzen, who perished in the bloom of his life in the Wilna ghetto, was a member of a young group of Polish painters, and was considered one of the important Jewish artists in Poland. The members of his family in Plotzk were engaged in various arts and crafts, and little Nathan loved to observe the handwork of his uncles, who were goldsmiths and silversmiths. His grandfather and father owned a workshop for the manufacture of copper goods, among them Jewish ritual objects. Eager to take up formal art studies, Nathan left his home and went to Warsaw. Professor Tadeusz Pruszkowsky of the Art Academy there recognized right away his outstanding talents and enabled him to enroll at the Academy. While still a student, Korzen already exhibited his work at a Jewish Gallery in Warsaw. Having finished his studies successfully, he soon became known as one of the finest painters of portraits in Poland. Leading personalities commissioned him to do their portraits and he was never short of work. He also painted from nature, and whenever he visited Plotzk, which is set in beautiful surroundings, he went out of town to paint the countryside. He spent many days at the picturesque village of Kazimierz, which attracted many painters because of its lovely setting. As the art critic Yehiel Aronson states in his appreciation of Korzen, he was not affected by the surrealistic school of PostImpressionism, since he was gifted with the ability to express his longings realistically on canvas. Korzen lived in Wilna at the outbreak of the war, as he thought that from there it would be easier to escape to the West. His hopes did not materialize, and he stayed on in the Ghetto, where he took part in the cultural life of the oppressed Jews. Murderous hands put an end to his creative life. His brother Harry, who resides in Toronto, published there a book in his memory in 1948. Regrettably only very few of his pictures were saved from destruction and some of them are to be found in the collection of Dr. Simchowicz of Tel Aviv.” (Plotzk Yizkor; 1967; pgs. 65-66) Subjects: Jewish artists - Poland.

While many of these artists never stepped from the camps, the strength of their will survives. ‘Spiritual Resistance is a representative sample of the work of some of these arts. Chosen with loving care, the net impression of the exhibit is not one of horror but one of deep faith – of commitment to tomorrow.” (Foreward). Subjects: Jewish art -- Exhibitions.

In Yiddish. “Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Itzhak Katzenelson (1885–1944), a Hebrew and Yiddish poet. ”Katzenelson’s world fell apart when in August 1942 his wife Hanna and two younger sons, Ben-Tsiyon and Binyamin, were deported to Treblinka. From then on, his literary creativity was piercingly shaped by lamentations over the loss of his family. Nonetheless, with his oldest son, Tsevi, he found the strength to join the Jewish Fighting Organization and took part in the first uprising of January 1943. After the ghetto was destroyed in April and May 1943, he escaped to the Aryan section of Warsaw and obtained a Honduran identity document. Nevertheless, he was sent to a German detention camp for foreign subjects in Vittel, France. He was imprisoned there until April 1944, and devoted most of his time to writing. Two important works were produced during that period: Pinkas Vitel (The Vittel Diary), a Hebrew composition that uses the language of an incensed diarist and reconstructs the days of terror in Warsaw during the mass deportations; and Dos lid fun oysgehargetn yidishn folk (The Poem about the Murdered Jewish People), a pathos-filled Yiddish poem that laments the destruction of the Jewish people and of the poet himself, who has been become bitterly angry with humankind and God. These two works are among the boldest and most lofty literary expressions to emerge from the Holocaust. … All of Katzenelson’s works from his Vittel period were either buried in hiding places or were given to people he trusted; consequently, they were saved and published shortly after the end of the war. In the middle of April 1944, Katzenelson and his son Tsevi were sent to the Drancy transit camp, and from there one month later to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. In 1950, the Ghetto Fighters kibbutz built a museum and an institute for research about the Holocaust that bear Yitsak Katzenelson’s name.” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Poetry.

Probably because of his poor health, he was allowed to go to Moscow in 1941, where he remained until 1946. He then returned to Poland and joined a group of Jewish authors and journalists who settled in Lódz and attempted to revive the literary center that had been destroyed during the war. Here he became involved in cultural activity and contributed to Jewish publications that appeared periodically in Poland. He was elected to chair the Association of Jewish Writers, Journalists, and Artists in Poland (Yid., Fareyn fun Yidishe Literatn, Zhurnalistn un Artistn in Poyln; Pol., Zwiazek Literatów, Dziennikarzy I Artystów Zydowskich w Polsce), but he did not hold that office for long.

During the Nazi invasion of 1939 he escaped from Poland one step ahead of the Nazis, the terror and horror of which he vividly described in Gebrente Trit (‘Burnt Steps, ’ 1947). Dortn (‘There, ’ 1946), is a heartrending elegy which he dedicated to Samuel Zygelbojm, the Bundist leader who committed suicide in London in 1943 to awaken the world's conscience to Jewish suffering. He wrote it upon his arrival in Tel Aviv, where visions of the less fortunate Jews trapped in Europe pursued him relentlessly. The poetic style of his works during this period became one of bitter accusation. In this final period of creativity, Segalowitch eulogized the devastated Polish-Jewish culture and his own destroyed generation.” (EJ 2007) A larger collection of poems with the same title was published in New York in 1946 by Tsukunft un Tsiko Farlag.

Title translates as, “Foreign Jews in the Trostenets Death Camp.” E. G. Joffe is a leading historian regarding the Holocaust in Belarus. He has written thoroughly on the subject and among other titles is a board member of the national historic Society and Foundation in Trostenets. Maly Trotenests was a “village in Eastern Bellrussia located 7.5 miles east of Minsk; camp and site of mass murder of Jews. About 200, 000 people were murdered in the Trostenets area. About 65, 000 were killed in Maly Trostenets, including over 30, 000 from the last major action in Minsk. Between July 28--31, 1942 and on October 21, 1943 the last Jews from Minsk were murdered and buried in Maly Trostenets and Bolshoi Trostenets. During 1942, Jews from Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Austria, and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia were brought by train to be killed in Maly Trostenets. Most of the victims were lined up in front of large pits and shot. Tractors then flattened the pits out. The prisoners in the camp were forced to sort through the victims' possessions and maintain the camp. They occasionally underwent selections (see also Selktion). This happened more frequently during 1943. In the fall of 1943 the Nazis began to destroy all evidence of mass murder by burning bodies. Soviet Prisoners of war were forced to rake through the ashes looking for gold. As the Soviet army approached in June 1944, the Germans killed most of the remaining prisoners. On June 30 the Germans completely destroyed the camp. When the Soviets arrived on July 3, they found a few Jews who had escaped.” (yadvashem.org) Subjects: Jews, German -- Belarus.

A history of the Baranovichi Ghetto and the Koldychevo Camp. “On the eve of the Holocaust, 12, 000 Jews lived in Baranovichi. Under Soviet rule (1939–41), Jewish community organizations were disbanded and any kind of political or youth activity was forbidden. Some youth groups organized flight to Vilna, which was then part of Lithuania, and from there reached Palestine. The Hebrew Tarbut school became a Russian institution. A Jewish high school did continue to function, however. In the summer of 1940 Jewish refugees from western Poland who had found refuge in Baranovichi after September 1939 were deported to the Soviet interior. When Germans captured the city on June 27, 1941, 400 Jews were kidnapped, leaving no trace. A Judenrat was set up, headed by Joshua Izikzon. The community was forced to pay a fine of five kg. Of gold, ten kg. Of silver, and 1, 000, 000 rubles. The ghetto was fenced off from the outside on Dec. 12, 1941. The ghetto inhabitants suffered great hardship that winter, although efforts were made to alleviate the hunger. The Jewish doctors and their assistants fought to contain the epidemics. On March 4, 1942, the ghetto was surrounded. In a Selektion carried out by the Nazis to separate the "productive" from the "nonproductive", over 3, 000 elderly persons, widows, orphans, etc., were taken to trenches prepared in advance and murdered. Resistance groups, organized in the ghetto as early as the spring of 1942, collected arms and sabotaged their places of work. Plans for rebellion were laid, but the uprising never came to pass, partly due to German subterfuge. In the second German Aktion on Sept. 22, 1942, about 3, 000 persons were murdered. On Dec. 17, 1942, another Aktion was carried out, in which more than 3, 000 persons were killed near Grabowce. Baranovichi was now declared judenrein. At the end of 1942 Jews were already fighting in groups among the partisans. A few survivors from the ghetto were still in some of the forced labor camps in the district, but most of them were liquidated in 1943. On July 8, 1944, when the city was taken by the Soviet forces, about 150 Jews reappeared from hiding in the forests. Later a few score more returned from the U. S. S. R.” (EJ 2007) ”Koldychevo Camp (Koldyczewo), forced labor camp in Belorussia, located 11 miles from Baranovichi, established by the Germans in late 1941. In November 1942 a crematorium was constructed in which some 600 people were incinerated. It later became an extermination camp in which Russians and Polish underground members were interned along with the Jews transferred from the surrounding ghettos of Baranovichi, Nowogrodek, Slonim, and others. Jews were separated from the other prisoners and the camp in the stables of what had once been a farm. Prior to the camp's liquidation on June 29, 1944, more than 22, 000 inmates were murdered and buried in 38 mass graves in and around the camp. A prisoner, Dr. Zelik Levinbrook, supplied medicine to the partisans with the help of a former patient. An active Jewish resistance, headed by Shlomo Kushnir, a former shoemaker, existed in Koldychevo. Its arms supply was meager: two guns, four grenades, and some acid. On the night of March 17, 1944, it succeeded in leading almost all the Jewish inmates out of the camp after killing ten Nazi guards and poisoning the guard dogs. Kushnir committed suicide when he was caught with 25 others. Seventy five prisoners survived. The rest joined the partisans in the forest.” (EJ 2007).

From 1920 to 1991, Minsk served as the capital of the Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR) … In 1941, a group of Jews (among them the Polish Jew Hersh Smolar; 1905–1993) organized a resistance movement in the ghetto in close connection with the Minsk Communist underground, led by Isay Kazinets (1910–1942) and Masha Bruskina (1924–1941). Members of the resistance organized acts of sabotage and, working together with the Judenrat (led by Il’ia Mushkin), diverted the production of the ghetto’s workshops and factories to the partisans. An underground printing press issued the leaflet Vestnik rodiny (Homeland’s Messenger). The resistance enabled thousands of Jews to escape to the forests, where they founded seven partisan brigades, one of which, in September 1943, organized the assassination of the governor-general of Belorussia, Wilhelm Kube. Approximately 10, 000 Minsk Jews succeeded in escaping from the ghetto, a proportion without parallel in Holocaust history. At liberation, 13 Jews had survived the ghetto and about 5, 000 Jewish partisans and their families returned from the forests. In 1945, the first memorial to Jewish victims in Minsk—and the only one in the USSR with a Yiddish inscription explicitly mentioning the Jewishness of the victims—was erected” (Bemporad, YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe).

Translated into English by Catharine Bland Williams. About the writer’s experiences in the Nazi concentration camp of Sachsenhausen. “Leon Szalet was born on April 9th 1892 in Zelechow (Poland). As a boy he moved with his parents to Warsaw where he attended and finished school and later set himself up in business. In 1921 he moved to Berlin and became active in the real estate business. With his friend Georg Breslauer, an architect, he developed a design for prefabricated houses made of steel in 1926. They applied for patents, which were granted in several important industrial countries. Model houses based on this design were shown at the Olympia building exhibition (with the cooperation of the British Steelwork Association) in London in 1936. The outbreak of the war interrupted the work. On September 13, 1939 Leon Szalet was taken prisoner by the Gestapo and sent to the concentration camp Sachsenhausen. On May 7th 1940 he was released and escaped to the Far East via Italy on the SS Conte Verde (the last ship to leave for Asia before the outbreak of the war). He came to Shanghai and remained there until October 1941 when he was granted an immigration visa to the United States. He entered the US on October 23, 1941 in San Francisco. In the US, Leon Szalet tried to renew his contacts in order to reestablish his business. He demanded reparations for the loss of properties in Berlin and was able to reclaim a building. In 1957 he travelled through Europe (Austria, France, Britain, Germany). Health problems forced him to stay in sanatoriums in Austria and England. Leon Szalet died in Berlin on March 2, 1958. Leon Szalet had a daugther, Gitla-Matla Szalet (Madeleine Lejwa-Chalette), who was born in Paris in 1914, while here parents were visiting there. In 1947, she married Arthur Lejwa, a Polish biochemist. The couple opened a gallery in Manhattan and became successful art dealers in the 1950s. Following her husband's death in 1972, Gitla-Matla Szalet closed the Galerie Chalette, but continued working as an art consultant to collectors and museums. She died in 1996. In 1946, Leon Szalet donated regulations of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and a map of all concentration camps in Germany to the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.” (Natl.

  179. Lubetkin, Zivia. IN THE DAYS OF DESTRUCTION AND REVOLT. Israel, Ghetto Fighters' House, 1981. Cloth, 8vo, 338 pages. In English. Translated from the Hebrew by Ishai Tubbin. The important memoir of the holocaust period by resistance member Zivia Lubetkin, (1914–1976), also known by her nom de guerre “Celina”, she was one of the leaders of the Jewish underground in Nazi-occupied Warsaw and the only woman on the High Command of the resistance group Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa (ZOB).She was born in 1914 in Byten near Slonim in Poland (now in Belarus). She joined the Labor Zionist Movement at an early age. In her late teens she joined the Zionist youth movement Habonim Dror, and in 1938 became a member of its Executive Council. She was in the Soviet Union-occupied area of Poland when Nazi Germany invaded the country in September 1939 and she made the perilous journey back to Warsaw to join the underground there. In 1942, Lubetkin helped found the left-wing Zionist Anti-Fascist Bloc. She also, as one of the founders of the ZOB, served on the Warsaw Jewish community’s political council, the Jewish National Committee (Zydowska Komitet Narodowy; ZKN), and also served on the Coordinating Committee, an umbrella organization comprising the ZKN and the non-Zionist General Jewish Labor Union (Bund), that sponsored the ZOB. During her years of underground activities, the name “Cywia” became the code word for Poland in letters sent by various resistance groups both within and outside of the Warsaw Ghetto. She was one of the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and one of only 34 fighters to survive the war. After leading her group of surviving fighters through the sewers of Warsaw with the aid of Simcha “Kazik” Rotem in the final days of the ghetto uprising (on May 30, 1943), she continued her resistance activities in the rest of Warsaw outside the ghetto. She took part in the Polish Warsaw Uprising in 1944.Following the Second World War, Lubetkin was active in the Holocaust survivors community in Europe, and helped organize the Beriha, an organization staffed by operatives who helped Eastern and Central European Jews cross borders en route to Mandate Palestine by illegal immigration channels. She herself immigrated to Mandate Palestine in 1946. She married Yitzhak Zuckerman, the ZOB commander, and they, along with other surviving ghetto fighters and partisans founded Kibbutz Lohamey ha-Geta’ot and the Ghetto Fighters’ House museum located on its grounds. In 1961, she testified at the trial of captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Light soiling to jacket. Very good condition. (HOLO2-86-10) Very Good+ Condition in Very Good+ Dust jacket.

  185. Berg, Mary. WARSAW GHETTO. A DIARY. [New York], L. B. Fischer, 1945t. Cloth. 12mo. 253 pages. 21 cm. The diary of Mary Berg was among the first eye-witness accounts of the Warsaw Ghetto tragedy. Berg, the daughter of a Polish-Jewish art dealer, started her diary on her fifteenth birthday, shortly after the Germans invaded Poland in 1939. The following year she and her family were forced into the Warsaw Ghetto. From the Ghetto's beginnings, Berg recorded the Jewish struggle to continue daily life amidst ever-increasing hunger, restrictions, and Nazi sadism. She witnessed the Great Deportation of July 1942 (in which some 300,000 Jews were "driven like cattle to the Umschlagplatz on Stawki Street to their death") from the windows of Pawiak Prison in which her family were held due to the American citizenship of Berg's mother. In 1943, her family was sent to an internment camp in France, and a year later they were exchanged for German prisoners and received papers for entry to the United States. Soon after her arrival, Berg rewrote her diary from her original shorthand and prepared it for publication with the help of S.L. Shneiderman. It was first published as a Yiddish serial in 1944, and L.B. Fischer published the book in English in 1945. Mary Berg disassociated herself from Shneiderman in 1957 and has attempted to fade from public view ever since. The diary, despite its acclaim, has never been re-printed in English since 1945.

I don’t want to say how I felt during the meal. I lost my appetite. In my letters home I didn’t say anything about what I’d seen. I didn’t want to upset my family. I thought, ‘What sort of world is this? ’ I didn’t tell my army comrades anything either. Later on, too, when they burnt down the Ghetto, we didn’t pay any attention.” (Page [5]).

  213. Jarblum, Marc. LA LUTTE DES JUIFS CONTRE LES NAZIS. Paris, Editions Realite, 1945. 1st Edition. Paper Wrappers, 8vo, 95 pages. illus. 24 cm. Contents include: La Lutte juive en Pologne; Les partisans juifs aux cotes des partisans sovietiques; Les Juifs dans les armees de l'U. R. S. S; La lutte en France; La lutte en Belgique; La participation juive a l'effort militaire des pays anglo-saxons; Les partisans juifs dans les armees du Marechal Tito, en Yougoslavie, en Hongrie et en Grece; etc. Written by Marc Jarblum (1887–1972), Zionist leader. Born in Warsaw, Jarblum was one of the founders of Po'alei Zion in Poland and also engaged in underground activity, for which he was repeatedly jailed. He moved to Paris in 1907 and completed his law studies there. From the time of his arrival in Paris he gradually became one of the most prominent public figures in the Po'alei Zion movement, the Zionist movement, and in French Jewry. He was especially active in the period between the two world wars. Jarblum was responsible for winning over Léon Blum and the leaders of the Second (Socialist) International – Jaurès, Vandervelde, and others – to the Zionist cause. For years he filled public positions – as the representative of Socialist Zionism at the Second International, as representative of the *Jewish Agency in Paris, president of the Zionist Federation and chairman of the Federation of Jewish Organizations in France, as head of the Socialist Zionist movement and editor of its organs, etc. During World War II, Jarblum lived in the unoccupied zone of France and was engaged in underground activities there and, from 1943, in Switzerland. He returned to France after the war and continued his public activities. Jarblum played a special role in securing the French vote for the UN resolution on the partition of Palestine (November 1947). Jarblum lived in Tel Aviv from 1955 and worked in the political department of the Histadrut there. He published numerous pamphlets on current affairs in Yiddish and in French.

  235. Kaczerginski, S. [Inscribed by Kaczerginski in year of publication]. IKH BIN GEVEN A PARTIZAN (DI GRINE LEGENDE). 2 Volumes in one book. Buenos Aires, Angel Gallardo, 1952. Cloth, 8vo, 387 pages. In Yiddish. Not in Robinson & Friedman nor Wolff. Jewish partisan's memoirs of resistance against the Nazis in Poland. Illustrated with many photographs throughout. Inscribed by Kaczerginski in year of publication. Kaczerginski (1908–1954) was a “Yiddish writer and cultural activist. Born in Vilna to a poor family and educated at that city’s Talmud Torah, Shmerke (Pol., Szmerke) Kaczerginski lost both his parents during World War I. As a youth, he was involved with outlawed Communist groups and was arrested several times, serving a lengthy prison term. In the 1930s, two of his revolutionary poems became popular in Poland. He wrote short stories with a radical bent and was a correspondent and reporter for literary publications, including the semilegal leftist press in Poland and the New York Communist daily Morgn-frayhayt. Kaczerginski played a key role in shaping the writers’ and artists’ group Yung-Vilne; he organized its evening events and was the de facto publisher of its three miscellanies between 1934 and 1936. During the period of Soviet control over Lithuania in 1940–1941, he was even more active in the field of Yiddish culture, but at the same time experienced his first disappointments with the attitude of the Soviet regime toward Jewish culture. During the first period of Nazi occupation, Kaczerginski wandered through villages and towns posing as a deaf mute; after many difficulties, he ended up in the Vilna ghetto. Kaczerginski was very involved in the ghetto’s cultural activities. As a leader of its youth club, he wrote its Yugnt-himen (Youth Hymn), a song that immediately became popular. In 1943, he wrote the song “Shtiler, shtiler” in memory of the mass murders committed at Ponar. Set to music that Aleksander Volkoviski (later known as Aleksander Tamir) had submitted to a contest organized by the ghetto, the song was first heard at an evening performance there and over the years became one of the best-known songs of the Holocaust. With Avrom Sutzkever and others, Kaczerginski became part of a group of forced laborers whom the Germans designated to sort Jewish cultural treasures at YIVO and other locations. Known as the Papir-brigade (Paper Brigade), the group’s members risked their lives to hide the most significant items, smuggling them back into the ghetto or entrusting them to non-Jewish acquaintances. Kaczerginski was a member of the Fareynikte Partizaner Organizatsye (United Partisans Organization; FPO), and, since YIVO’s building was located outside the ghetto walls, he took part in smuggling weapons into the ghetto. In September 1943, Kaczerginski, along with Avrom and Freydke Sutzkever and other members of the FPO, escaped from the Vilna ghetto as part of an organized group of fighters just before its liquidation. They joined a Soviet partisan unit in the Naroch Forests, where Kaczerginski fought as a partisan until liberation in July 1944. Kaczerginski’s books describe the destruction of Vilna, the partisan struggle, and his own experiences during the Holocaust period: Khurbn Vilne (The Destruction of Vilna; 1947), Partizaner geyen (Partisans on the Move; 1947), and Ikh bin geven a partizan (I Was a Partisan; 1952)” (YIVO, 2010).

In Polish. “Arnold Mostowicz was born in 1914, the only son of a middle-class Jewish family. He grew up in Lodz which, before the German invasion, had a population of at least a quarter of a million Jews and was a prominent and prosperous centre. At the age of 19, and because ‘as a Jew I did not have a chance of studying medicine at a Polish university, ’ he travelled to France and enrolled as a medical student. Upon completing his studies he returned to Poland in July 1939, and when, in September, all young men were called to defend Poland against the Nazi invasion, he packed up two shirts, a jar of home-made jam and a volume of poems and walked to Warsaw to join the war. During the siege of Warsaw, Mostowicz worked as a physician in the Child Jesu Hospital where he treated victims of the German air raids. When Warsaw capitulated, Mostowicz returned to Lodz and the ghetto. There he worked in the isolation department of the hospital, and took part in the resistance movement. By the end of the war almost all of the ghetto's inhabitants were gone - either dead from starvation and exhaustion or sent to death camps. Mostowicz himself was deported, in 1944, to Auschwitz, before being moved to the Gross Rosen concentration camp from which he was liberated in May 1945. Most of his family, including his parents, perished at Treblinka and at other camps. For a time after the war Mostowicz ran a hospital but he soon turned his back on medicine and devoted himself to writing. He was editor of the satirical Polish magazine Szpilki, before being ousted in an anti-Semitic Communist purge in 1968. Mostowicz wrote science fiction and books about Lodz, as well as an autobiographical memoir, The Yellow Star (1989). In 1994, he founded the Monumentum Judaicum Lodzense Association, to maintain the cultural heritage of Lodz's Jews.” (The Telegraph, 2/8/2002) Subjects: Jews -- Poland -- Lodz -- Biography.

VIII, 2008 pages. 29 cm. In Yiddish. First edition. Edited by Mendel Sudarsky, Uriah Katzenelenbogen, J. Kissen. Volume 2 edited by Ch. Leikowicz and published in Tel Aviv by Farlag Y. L. Perets. This Yizkor volume consists of hundreds of testimonies and local histories compiled by Lithuanian survivors and landsmanshaftn detailing their communities history and the destruction thereof, is an extremely important contribution to regional Jewish historiography and to knowledge about the Holocaust era in Europe. From the preface to the second volume: “The survivors from Lite around the world, and those who stemmed from Lite in the State of Israel, had already made efforts to publish compilations in Yiddish and Hebrew that tried to tell about the seven hundred-year history of Jewish-Lithuanian Jewry and to mourn its tragic murder. It was with great devotion and faithfulness that this holy work was taken on, in his time, by the late Dr. Mendl Sudarsky [of blessed memory]. He was the foundation layer and editor of the momentous compilation Lite (published in 1951 in New York) which was received by the general Jewish public with such appreciation. By the time of the publication of the first volume of Lite, Dr. Sudarsky already collected and prepared materials for a further book, which he was, unfortunately, not destined to publish. His collected manuscripts remained with his widow, Alte Sudarsky, who had always taken pains to see the book published. So ten years raced by, until she was able to realize that here, in Israel, in the Y. L Perets Publishing House. Her single desire in life was to see a printed copy of Volume Two, and for that she literally bled and gave her last energies. To our deep sorrow she died while she was preparing to return to New York and as the second volume of Lite was being typeset. May the earth of Israel be light on her! We intend to present the second volume in the same spirit as its forerunner, the first volume. In general we have consciously left the style and the form of each participant in the book, and the author alone bears the responsibility for its content and composition. The editors permitted themselves only, for the most part, to provide comments. As far as it was within our domain to do so, we have included a few new articles and pictures.

First comprehensive study of the Holocaust in Latvia. "This massive study.spares no detail.Ezergailis is no youngster and he spent many years gathering the facts and writing the text. He has complete command of the literature and the trial records. His research took him to many archives. Needless to say, he could read the Latvian sources with full understanding. He is painstakingly objective and he tries to the utmost to be precise. What he wrote is limited in scope but not minor in importance. Latvia affords a window to the critical topic of the initiation of the final solution. The Jewish victims there were not only local inhabitants but also deportees from the Reich. The Riga massacres in the late fall of 1941 were, after Odessa and Kiev, the largest in Europe. More important, however, must be our recognition of the fact that Ezergailis represents the next wave of Holocaust research: the in depth exploration of a particular aspect or territory. In that sense he is a pioneer and his work serves as a model.” - Raul Hilberg (Dustjacket review). Subjects: Jews - Persecutions - Latvia. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Latvia. Holocaust.

Pages 195-238 (ie 43 pages). 26 cm. Offprint from Jewish social studies, vol. 9, no. 3. An extensive survey of the composition and history of the Jewish communities of Germany, with various charts of population and social statistics (as furnished in reports from the American Federation of Jews from Central Europe); the author outlines the premeditated annihilation of German Jewry as marked at key moments in the Nazi regime. Written by Adolf Kober (1879–1958), “Reform rabbi and historian. Kober was born in Beuthen, Upper Silesia, and he studied at the Jewish Theological Seminary and the University of Breslau. He served as rabbi at Wiesbaden (1908–18) and Cologne (1906–08, 1918–39). As historian of Rhenish Jewry, he organized the Jewish section for the exhibition celebrating the Rhineland's 1, 000-year association with the German Reich in Cologne in 1925. With Bruno Kisch, Kober was responsible for establishing the Juedisches Lehrhaus in Cologne in 1928; he also lectured on Jewish history at the Volkshochschule (‘People's University’) and the University of Cologne. In 1939 he emigrated to the United States, where in New York he formed a congregation of emigrants from Germany in association with the B'nai Jeshurun synagogue. Kober specialized in German-Jewish history and, in particular, the history of the Rhenish and Cologne Jews, basing his research on the scrupulous study of archival material. He wrote numerous studies on the history of the Jews in the Rhineland, among them Grundbuch des Koelner Judenviertels (1920) and Cologne (Eng. Trans. By S. Grayzel, 1940). He also published many articles in this field. In the U. S. He worked as a research fellow of the American Academy of Jewish Research.” (EJ, 2007) Includes laid in Compliments card from the American Federation of Jews from Central Europe.

First edition. 41 illustrations. First “published by Kar-Ben, Abell's book uses a chronological organization, beginning with 'Before the Nazis. Some children lived in towns like this, ’ showing ordinary settings. Later, children are seen hungry in the streets; one is shot while being held by a woman. The pictures of happier times, the naming of specific children who died, and an economy of words increase the ghastly impact. Total despair does not reign; some children survive. Young readers will feel empowered almost saved through identification by these children's strategies for rescue, hiding and escape. The book is meant to be shared with someone who can explain the images; its message is one that richly deserves a wide audience.” (Review; 1986 Reed Business Information) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Pictorial works - Juvenile literature.

Inscribed by Ernst Simon in Hebrew on endpage. Collected Essays of the German Jewish Zionist Akiba Ernst Simon, with a foreword by Martin Buber. Simon was an “educator, religious thinker, and writer. Born in Berlin, he became an active Zionist in 1918, and co-edited Der Jude with Martin Buber, who had a decisive influence on his concept of Jewish nationalism and whom he joined in his relentless struggle for Arab-Jewish understanding. In his positive attitude to Jewish tradition he followed Franz Rosenzweig. With a broad humanistic outlook, based on his historical and literary erudition and scholarship, he began his work as an educator in Germany and continued it, after settling in Palestine in 1928, as a teacher and co-director of secondary schools and seminaries. In 1934 he accepted Buber's call to join him in teachers' training and adult education programs for German Jewry under Nazi rule. In 1935 Simon joined the staff of the Hebrew University, where he became professor of philosophy and history of education and, finally, director of the School of Education. He participated in Jewish education programs in various parts of the Jewish world and was a co-editor of the Enziklopedyah Hinnukhit (‘Educational Encyclopedia’; 5 vols. 1961–66). Simon was a co-founder and board member of the Leo Baeck Institute and a contributor to its scholarly publications.

His two-page statement found in a small pamphlet entitled ‘My Faith, ’ printed and distributed by the American Weekly (New York, 1948) reveals a greatness of soul and keenness of intelligence and understanding rarely found in the history of mankind.” (Reviews of Modern Physics, 1949, Einstein Commemoration Volume).

Published under the pen name Karl Billinger. An expose of the reality of Hitler's ideas as set out in Mein Kampf. “In his book Hitler has laid the groundwork for the mystification of his life. In picturing his parental home, his family, and his youth-- in describing his venture into life, his service during and after the War, there is hardly a single clear statement of fact. Each is blurred intentionally, much has been proved beyond doubt to be imaginary. The omission of circumstances and experiences which in any other man's life would be irrelevant takes on a special significance.” (page 14) Paul Massing was a German sociologist, Communist party member and refugee from Nazi Germany.
