Zaglada Zydostwa Polskiego: Album Zdjec / Extermination of Polish Jews: Album of Pictures / Extermination des Juifs en Pologne: Album de Photographies
Lodz: Centralna Zydowska Komisja Historyczna w Polsce, 1945. First edition. Hardcover. vg. Oblong quarto. [21] leaves (Text), 104 leaves (Photographic plates), [15] leaves (Captions). Full black cloth with gold lettering on spine. Considered as one of the single most important documentary photo books on the Holocaust ever published, this book became the defining collection of photographic images from the period. Illustrated with 252 b/w photographic reproductions documenting the debasement and destruction of European Jewry, with pictures of cities, ghettos and the camps. This multilingual photographic album was published in Poland a few months after the end of World War II when relatively little was known on the magnitude of the genocide perpetrated upon the European Jews. In addition to a short introduction, the 252 photographs contain shocking footage from the Jewish settlements at the onset of German occupation, the ghettos into which they were later crowded, and finally, photographs of the atrocities committed in the forced labor camps and the extermination camps. Another section of the book is dedicated to the Jewish partisan movements. The photographs were mostly taken as mementos by German soldiers, and are still as shocking today as they were in 1945. Head of spine slightly rubbed. Minor offsetting to endpapers. Previous owner's inscription and signature on half-title. Text and captions in Polish, Russian, English, French, Yiddish and Hebrew. Binding and interior in overall very good condition.
