(p.1) Introduction
Chełmno and the Holocaust

Patrick Montague

University of North Carolina Press

This book sheds light on the little known but crucial chapter of the Holocaust with respect to concentration camps or extermination centers. Focusing on the Chełmno camp, it attempts to clarify misconceptions that surround the history of the death camp. Because of insufficient published research on the Chełmno death camp, the book introduces important sources that can provide a fuller understanding of Chełmno. These sources include eyewitness testimonies of camp staff, Jewish prisoners, and local residents; documents such as camp records, the Polish government's investigation of the Chełmno extermination camp, and academic and scholarly studies, research projects, personal memoirs, and fiction based on a meeting with a survivor of Chełmno.

Keywords:   Holocaust, concentration camps, extermination centers, Chełmno camp, death camp, Jewish prisoners
