The Nazis went through a series of steps in their attempt to eliminate the European Jews, moving from mass shootings to increasingly sophisticated application of gassing. Tracing this development, we study perpetrator profiles, victim strategies, and the role of bystanders. Looking at political and social aspects of the aftermath of the Holocaust, we focus on the role of the former killing sites in today’s Poland, as well as the international community. We discuss former concentration camps as both museums and memorials.
