* Volume 9, The Holocaust: Selected Documents in Eighteen Volumes. The killing of Jews and others by injection or gassing was first carried out in sanatoria and described as euthanasia. In concentration camps these killings were continued together with various medical or pseudo-medical experiments using human beings as guinea pigs. The documentation reproduced in this volume concentrates on the euthanasia, as well as the sterilization experiments, and also on the skeleton collection. About 100 Jews were selected, killed and defleshed in order to obtain their skeletons for a collection at the University of Strassburg that was to document how the "extinct" Jews were "sub-human." Contains 30 documents of source materials, carefully chosen from the thousands preserved at the U.S. National Archives. A detailed table of contents lists and provides the source for each document.
