"Well researched ... accessible ... this valuable resource covers an aspect of the Holocaust rarely addressed and never in such detail. A valuable addition to libraries focusing on the Holocaust." --Library Journal "A readable encyclopedia with very up-to-date bibliographical sources. This important reference work belongs on every library bookshelf." --Choice "[This] volume would well serve those who research the Holocaust or work with survivor memoirs and testimonies." --The American Jewish World "The most efficacious way of fighting the scourge of Holocaust denial is with the facts. No argument posed by deniers can withstand the overwhelming weight of the truth. This encyclopaedia will provide a host of detail about crucial aspects of the Holocaust that cannot be found elsewhere." Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving "An indispensable source that no one individual could compile in a lifetime of research... An especially useful reference work for anyone working with survivor memoirs and testimonies." Christopher R.

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.
