“The destiny of each community, major or modest, famous or obscure, can be found here, with its rabbis and merchants, its wise men and beggars, with their histories and their dreams:everything that vanished in faraway flames and into gigantic cemeteries can be found in the immensity of the grief that dominated the gloomy universe of those times” writes Elie Wiesel in his foreword to Randolph L. Braham’s The Geographical Encyclopedia of the Holocaust in Hungary.
The recently published three volumes of the Encyclopedia are designed to serve as a reference work for teachers, students, and all those interested in the catastrophe that befell Hungarian Jews. The book is also designed to serve as a monument to the Jewish communities that were destroyed during the Holocaust.
The Holocaust Memorial Center has received a copy of this valuable publication. Researchers, students, teachers and every interested visitor may consult it at the institution’s Brahamtheque Information Center. The aim of the Center is to collect the research results and publications of Professor Braham and make them available to researchers, educators and to the public in easy to access digital form.
