New. $65. * Volume 17, The Holocaust: Selected Documents in Eighteen Volumes. Much of the most important documentation of the Holocaust was assembled in connection with the postwar prosecution of its perpetrators. The only major United States trial that was devoted entirely to the Holocaust was the Ohlendorf or Einsatzgruppen case. Other cases, tried at Nuernberg, that dealt with important aspects of the Holocaust were the International Military Tribunal and the Brandt and Pohl cases. In the Brandt or "medical case" a number of medical doctors and other SS officers were tried for conducting various experiments on concentration camp inmates, and for the killing of Jews to obtain skeletons for a collection at the University of Strassburg. In the Pohl or "concentration camp case" a group of SS officers was convicted for managing the concentration camps, and for profiteering from inmate labor in SS enterprises. In the Ohlendorf case, a number of commanders and members of Einsatzgruppen stood trial for killing an estimated one million men, women and children in the Soviet Union, mainly Jews.
