about

This book explores the geographies of the Holocaust at every scale of human experience, from the European continent to the experiences of individual human bodies. Built on six innovative case studies, it brings together historians and geographers to interrogate the places and spaces of the genocide. The cases encompass the landscapes of particular places (the killing zones in the East, deportations from sites in Italy, the camps of Auschwitz, the ghettos of Budapest) and the intimate spaces of bodies on evacuation marches. Geographies of the Holocaust puts forward models and a research agenda for different ways of visualizing and thinking about the Holocaust by examining the spaces and places where it was enacted and experienced.

Editorial Reviews

"Most historians of the Holocaust remain unaware of the powerful methodological tools developed by geographers that can be fruitfully applied to our field. The great value of this book is that it will serve as an introduction and a primer for the uninitiated. It will help explain how GIS and other technologies can enhance our understanding of the Holocaust and convey some important new findings resulting from the application of these very methods." -Alan E. Steinweis, author of Studying the Jew: Scholarly Antisemitism in Nazi Germany
