Crafted over the course of four years by the research and
production staff of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum,
the Historical Atlas of the Holocaust provides a unique depiction
of Europe between 1933 and 1950. Compiled from archives around the
world, the Atlas is based on extensive research into primary
sources -- such as period maps captured from the German army,
survivor testimony, and aerial photographs taken by American,
British, and German forces -- illustrating the Nazi camp system
that pervaded Europe.
The Museum's researchers have prepared detailed plans and
explanatory text for more than 25 Nazi concentration, transit,
forced-labor, and extermination camps. In addition to maps of major
cities and ghettos, the Atlas charts the destruction of synagogues
during Kristallnacht; the movement of Nazi killing squads across
eastern Europe; the routes of deportations and forced marches; and
the location of Nazi pseudo-scientific experimental facilities.
While the main focus is on the Holocaust of Eastern Jewry, the
Atlas includes maps and text which document the Nazi persecution
and murder of other groups, including the handicapped, Roma
(gypsies), homosexuals, Poles, political opponents, and Jehovah's
