From summer 1941 onwards, Romania actively pursued at its own initiative the mass killing of Jews in the territories it controlled. 1941 saw 13,000 Jewish residents of the Romanian city of Ia‚i killed, the extermination of thousands of Jews in Northern Bukovina and Bessarabia by Romanian armed forces and local people, large-scale deportations of Jews to the camps and ghettos of Transnistria, and massacres in and around Odessa. Overall, more than 300,000 Jews of Romanian and Soviet or Ukrainian origin were murdered in Romanian- controlled territories during the Second World War. In this volume, a number of renowned experts shed light on the events, the contexts, and the aftermath of this under-researched and lesser-known dimension of the Holocaust. 75 years on, this book gives much-needed impetus to research on the Holocaust in  Romania and Romanian-controlled territories.

Stimmen zum Buch:

“We desperately need to know more about the Holocaust in Romania and the territories occupied and administered by Romanians during World War II. For too long this subject has not gotten the prominence it deserves. This volume gathers together many of the best scholars on the subject and promises to yield important new knowledge and insights.”
Jeffrey Kopstein, University of California, Irvine

“Other than Germany, Romania was directly responsible for the murder of more Jews than any country during World War II. This transnational collection brings together the findings of leading specialists on this little-known but very important part of the Holocaust.”
Karel C. Berkhoff, NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Amsterdam

“This much-needed collection brings together major experts on the Romanian Holocaust to contribute to ongoing debates over local actors, regional differences, change over time, and collective memory, as well as discussing the theory and method of Holocaust studies and opening new research agendas on several fronts. A valuable addition to a burgeoning literature.”
Roland D. Clark, University of Liverpool
