Shot by shot : the Holocaust in German-occupied Soviet territory / Joshua Rubenstein.


Shot by Shot: The Holocaust in German-Occupied Soviet Territory, an ebook by Joshua Rubenstein, author and associate at Harvard's Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian studies, contains personal survivor testimony and archival video footage as well as primary source documents that provide detailed perspectives of the events unfolding during the Holocaust in Soviet territories. In the months following the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, the Nazis murdered nearly a million Jews in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Belorussia, and Russia. It was here, before the Nazis killed a single person in the gas chambers of Treblinka, or took the Jews of Western Europe by train to killing centers in Poland, that they first embarked on their murderous intentions. Discover primary source documents, including reports from German officers, print and video interviews with Jewish survivors, articles from the Soviet and American press about the killings and the liberation of concentration camps by Red Army units, and first-hand accounts of the open air massacres that targeted the Jews throughout German-occupied Soviet territories.
