Pogrom: The Origins of the European Genocide of the Jews, 1917-1921

Research leading to publication of a monograph on the origins of the Holocaust.

Pogrom: The Origins of the European Genocide of the Jews is a study of how the anti-Jewish pogroms of 1917-1921 created the preconditions for the Holocaust. Based on extensive archival research in five different languages, the book provides in-depth analysis of six of the two thousand pogroms that took place during the Russian Civil War, and traces the aftermath of the violence both locally and internationally. The book is under contract with Metropolitan Books/ Henry Holt and Company, which has negotiated for five international editions in addition to the US edition.
