John Roth Ph.D.

Publisher: Publications International

A booklet published in Jerusalem in 1940 by the United Aid Committee for the Jews in Poland termed the extermination of Europe’s Jews sho’ah, a Hebrew word for mass slaughter. In the 1950s the word “Holocaust” came into common usage to describe the catastrophe that befell Jews during the war years.
The Holocaust Chronicle is a remembrance designed to be held in one’s hands. It is a portable archive that demands to be looked at and read. Although its weight and heft cannot capture the immensity of its subject, the volume’s size does suggest that this is a topic that must be openly confronted.

The book is a not-for-profit enterprise made available to the widest possible audience via a low price that will allow widespread distribution to schools, universities, synagogues, public libraries, churches, and retail outlets. Its goal is the truth, scrupulously researched and vividly expressed in words and pictures.

Equally notable is the book’s companion project, the detailed, cross-referenced Holocaust Chronicle Web site you are visiting now. It includes the book’s complete text and index, plus all of the book's images. Because Holocaust-related developments cross news wires daily, the Web site is regularly updated.

Black-and-white photographs and mottled motion picture footage may lead young people to conclude that the Holocaust happened so long ago as to be unknowable, even irrelevant. Some older people may have convinced themselves that the past is past, and that the Holocaust is a dead issue. But in the great continuum of history, the horror took place only yesterday. Thousands of Holocaust survivors still live, and those who were the youngest and most helpless are not elderly but merely middle-aged.

We owe it not merely to the Holocaust victims to remember what happened, but to all people now living, and to all those yet to be born, to remember, and to ponder. Only in our remembrance and open discussion is there a chance, a hope, that another Holocaust will never happen.
