Inappropriate Posts

Hoping the H-Holocaust and H-AS editors will make serious review of criteria for appropriate and inappropriate posts.  If the topic was, for example, juxtaposing Nazi Germany with contemporary politics, there have been widely circulated articles by Chris Browning, Debby Lipstadt, and others that speak to this.  Such pieces by outstanding scholars would be a useful model for making such choices.

H-Holocaust is a Network for scholars of the Holocaust / Shoah

Here is the description of H-Holocaust. I don't know when it was written or by whom. I think we need to update it and trim it down, it's much too long and I was wondering if some of you would volunteer to do that. It's quite lengthly.

RE-PRINT ANNOUNCEMENT: "I Was A Doctor In Auschwitz" by Gisella Perl

I WAS A DOCTOR IN AUSCHWITZ by Dr. Gisella Perl - first published in 1948 but out of print for decades - is now widely available again, in hardcover, paperback, and as an e-book.

Perl’s memoir is an extraordinarily candid account of women’s extreme efforts to survive Auschwitz. It was the first memoir by a woman survivor and established the model for understanding the gendered Nazi policies and practices targeting Jewish women as racially poisonous.
