Summary"More than 2,000,000 Jews were killed by shooting during the Holocaust at several thousand mass killing sites across Europe. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) aims to raise awareness of this centrally important aspect of the Holocaust by bringing together organizations and individuals dealing with the subject. This publication is the first relatively comprehensive and up-to-date anthology on the topic that reflects both the research and the fieldwork on the killing sites." —Back cover
