From the Publisher
“Outstanding Title! Originally scheduled for publication in 1947 by the Soviet government, the Jewish authors of this volume became victims of Stalin's antisemitic purge following the end of WW II, and the book was forbidden publication… Based on eyewitness testimonies, letters, diaries, and other documentary evidence, the book describes in detail the Nazi massacres at Babi Yar, Minsk, Auschwitz, Treblinka, Vilnius, and other areas of German-occupied Russia and Poland. This new and definitive English translation is a major literary and intellectual event and will remain the indispensable account of the Nazi genocide against the Jews in the Soviet Union, where about one-third of the six million Jews who died in the Holocaust were annihilated by the Germans. Of particular use to students, teachers, and scholars of the Holocaust, this book should be included in all library collections. All levels.”
—J. Fischel, Choice
"Only the most benighted Holocaust denier could read this volume without flinching. For the rest of us this is history almost to raw for us to digest."
"You and Transaction are making an enormous contribution to the historical record by publishing the text of The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry in English."
– Professor Joshua Rubenstein, Harvard University, Davis Center for Russian Studies
"[The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry] can claim to be the most complete of all: it contains the full "official" text as well as all the materials that Soviet censorship excised in the main accounts of local collaboration. It is a translation of the Russian text published in Vilnius in 1993 (although without the photo-documentation of that edition). In this edition, materials that were removed by the censor are included in brackets."
– John D. Klier, Journal of Modern History
"This book details the horrors of the atrocities that the Germans inflicted on the Jews--the humiliation and torture and mass murder, and the horror of their plans to commit such acts against humanity....Reading this book is a harrowing experience."
