This chapter presents a number of book reviews which touch on the subjects of antisemitism, the Holocaust, and genocide. Topics covered by the books reviewed include Israeli Jewish society after the Holocaust, the annihilation of the Jews in eastern Poland following Nazi invasion, and the two major concentration camp trials that preceded and immediately followed the International Military Tribunal (IMT) proceedings. Other books reviewed are about the role of religion in survivors' lives, Nazi racial policy in Poland, the interaction between Jews and Germans on the black market, the juridical ways in which victors and vanquished have dealt with mass violence, and American and American Jewish responses to Nazi outrages in the 1930s. Another book reviewed focuses on the trial of 61 personnel of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp in Austria. Other books look at the Jewish experience after the Holocaust during the early post-war years in Europe, the revival of Yiddish culture among the displaced persons (DPs), the loosely linked diaspora of Jews from Vilna and Jewish sites of memory in the present-day city, prior assumptions about Jewish displaced persons (DPs) and Holocaust survivors, various aspects of the Yishuv during the Holocaust era, and the trial of Nazi war criminals in the Nuremberg military tribunals. The final couple of books reviewed analyze the significance of Lodz to Jewish life in Poland in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust and American psychologist David Broder's interviews with Holocaust survivors in displaced person (DP) camps and shelters in various areas in Europe in 1946.
