US Holocaust Memorial Museum Encyclopedia Books FOR FREE

Recommended Posts

For those who don't know, in 1999 the US Holocaust Memorial Museum began a major project to produce an Encyclopedia series on the various aspects of the Holocaust. It really is a project to end all projects on the subject matter and will eventually run to 7 volumes. Each volume is split in to two parts and the page count is around 1,400-1,600 for each two part volume.

Volume 1 Pt A & B is entitled ' Early Camps, Youth Camps, and Concentration Camps and Subcamps under the SS-Business Administration Main Office (WVHA)' while Volume 2 Pt A & B is entitled 'Ghettos in German-Occupied Eastern Europe'. Volume 3 Pt A & B are due for release this year and is entitled 'Camps and Ghettos under European Regimes Aligned with Nazi Germany'.

Each two part volume set sell for £124 (new) and upwards but the USHMM themselves are making the first two volumes (so 4 books in total) available for download as PDF's for absolutely nothing.

Just go to the link below, click on 'Download the PDF's' and fill in a small survey (just name, email, why you wish to download, company worked for/education authority & do you wish to receive emails from USHMM - for the 'why?' question I just put that I own the books and this will make it easier to search the topic) and once you submit that you are then redirected to a page where you can download all 4 parts for free. On the same page as the 'Download the PDF's' are the links to download each volumes contents & indexes - file size wise they are between 59-90Mb). Even if you have no intention of obtaining the future volumes don't miss this chance to obtain these books that will never be bettered on the topics they cover.
