Notes
  • "In the aftermath of the Holocaust, Jewish historian Zosa Szajkowski stole tens of thousands of documents from France and sold them to libraries in the United States. To understand why he did it, Leff takes us "backstage" at the archives and reveals the powerful ideological, economic, and scientific forces that made Holocaust-era Jewish scholars care more deeply than ever before about preserving the remnants of their past"--Provided by the publisher.
  • Includes bibliographical references (pages 245-273) and index.
