Book cover"The Unknown Black Book" provides, for the first time in English, a revelatory compilation of testimonies from Jews who survived open-air massacres and other atrocities carried out by the Germans and their allies in the occupied Soviet territories during World War II.

Collected under the direction of two renowned Soviet Jewish journalists, Ilya Ehrenburg and Vasily Grossman, these documents are firsthand accounts by survivors of work camps, ghettos, forced marches, beatings, starvation and disease.

Joshua Rubenstein is the Northeast regional director of Amnesty International USA and a longtime associate at Harvard University's Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies.
