As scholarship and awareness of the Holocaust grew rapidly in the 1990’s, information on Jasenovac and the genocides perpetrated against Serbs, Jews and Romas in Yugoslavia during World War II was absent from this discussion. This neglect posed some troubling questions. How could the subject of Jasenovac be absent from public and scholarly attention at the very moment when discussions of genocide, war crimes and human rights in the Balkans were on the front pages of every newspaper, and in the pronouncements of every Holocaust and human rights institution and governement in the world? How could any serious public discussion of genocide in the former Yugoslavia begin without the necessary historical context?

In 1997 Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, New York hosted a conference on Jasenovac and the Holocaust in Yugoslavia. The results of that conference are presented here for the first time in an accurate and authorized edition, prepared in cooperation with the authors.

This book contains 30 chapters including a 40 page introduction. There are 15 chapters of analyses by historians including Michael Berenbaum, Christopher Simpson, Antun Miletic, Eli Rosenbaum, Charles R. Allen Jr. and others, along with 15 chapters of unique Holocaust testimonies by Jasenovac and other concentration camp survivors. There are 97 photographs, 30 pages of appendices with never before translated documents, maps, a twelve page double columned index with detailed entries, 27 biographical entries on contributors, and discussion of secondary source literature. The entire book is annotated and expertly prepared. This book provides one of the most extensive and accurate presentations of this subject in the English language ever produced.
