The Holocaust in Croatia recounts the history of the Croatian Jewish community during the Second World War with a focus on the city of Zagreb. The authors’ accessible narrative, here available in English for the first time, has been praised for its objectivity, and is complemented by a large bibliography offering an outstanding referential source to archival materials. As such, this book stands as the definitive account of the Jews in Croatia, up to and including the criminal acts perpetrated by the pro-Nazi Ustasha regime, and adds significantly to our knowledge of the Holocaust.
This book explores little-known dimensions of the Holocaust on Soviet territory: how the Soviet state and citizens reacted to the annihilation of the Jewish population and how to understand the role of local participants.
Jeremy Hicks presents a pioneering study of Soviet contributions to the growing public awareness of the horrors of Nazi rule. He recovers much of the major film work in Soviet depictions of the Holocaust and views them within their political context, both locally and internationally.
