JRI Republises Major Work on the Holocaust in Yugoslavia
"The Black Book"
22 April 2005
On the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Jasenovac and the end of the Holocaust
in Yugoslavia, the Jasenovac Research Institute is proud to announce its publication
of one of the most important studies of the Holocaust in Yugoslavia -- "The Crimes
of the Fascist Occupants and Their Collaborators Against Jews in Yugoslavia" ("Zlocini
fasistickih okupatora i nijihovih saradnika protiv Jevreja u Jugoslaviji"). It is
generally agreed that this work is one of the two most important books on the Jewish
dimension of the Holocaust in Yugoslavia ever produced (the other being Jasa Romano's
study published nearly thirty years later).
Also known simply as "The Black Book," this study first appeared 53 years ago in an
edition officially listed as 4000 copies. But in truth, fewer than 1000 copies of
"The Black Book" were distributed, and far fewer still ever saw public distribution.
This edition, with a new preface by Alexandar Mosic, Barry Lituchy and Danko Vasovic in
English and Serbian, consists of three parts: the main text is 195 pages in Serbian;
there is a very comprehensive English language summary of 53 pages; plus another 44
pages offer photographs and original documents with English and Serbian captions. It
is an extraordinary work that will be reissued by the JRI in the future and will become
the standard text in libraries, universities and Holocaust institutions around the
world that it was always meant to be.
It is available to the public for $30 (US) (includes shipping and postage). For JRI
Associates the book is $20 (US).
