This chapter reviews the book Gates of Tears: The Holocaust in the Lublin District (2013), by David Silberklang. Gates of Tears tells the story of the administrative structure of the Lublin district in Poland during the Holocaust. It explores forced population movements during the first year of German occupation, forced labor, resettlements and ghettos during 1940 and 1941, deportations, and the forced labor camps after 1942. Silberklang analyzes the interplay of center and periphery within the Nazi Party apparatus in the development of German policy toward the Jews, refracted through the multiple lenses of the civil administration and the security bureaucracy. The book, based on massive archival research, highlights the importance of regional history and local studies for historians of the Holocaust in Poland.
