Book Description

30 May 2013
The illustrated three-volume Geographical Encyclopedia of the Holocaust in Hungary is a magisterial resource, thorough and exhaustive, chronicling the wartime fate of the Jewish communities in that country where virulent antisemitism is anything but dead, even today. With scores of detailed maps and hundreds of photographs, this reference work is organised alphabetically by county, each prefaced with a map and a con--textual history describing its Jewish population up to and into 1944. Entries track the demographic, cultural, and religious changes in even the smallest communities where Jews lived before their marginalisation, dispossession, ghettoisation, and, finally, deportation to labour and death camps. The encyclopaedia endows scholars and lay researchers with both panoramic and microscopic views of the virtually last-minute destruction of most of the Jews of Hungary, until then the last sizable sur--viving Jewish community in occupied Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book on the Holocaust 5 July 2014
By B. Wolinsky - Published on Amazon.com
I’ve heard Hungarian Holocaust survivors talk with nostalgia about life before the war. They spoke of the beautiful cities, the cafes, how civilized it all was. The Jews of Hungary were stereotyped as urbane, well-educated, multilingual, and cultured. But this book doesn’t restrict itself to the upper classes of Hungarian Jews; it collects the stories of the small town Jewish populations, and how they were wiped out.

Hungary was one of the last nations conquered by the Nazis, at a time when they were losing the war. Though Hungary’s government was pro-Nazi (probably out of fear of the Soviets) they refused to hand over the Jewish inhabitants until later in the war. While a sizeable number of Hungarian Jews survived the Holocaust, few returned afterward.

As a well-researched text, it’s a valuable tool for anyone studying the Holocaust and its effects on Europe’s Jews. It’s also important for historians on a personal level. If your ancestors came from a particular town in Hungary, this three-volume text will let you learn all about that community.
