Yad Vashem Studies, 39:1 is dedicated to the memory of Maxime Steinberg, the Belgian Jewish historian who pioneered the study of the Holocaust in Belgium, and opens with an article on his contribution to the field.

The research articles in this volume address Jewish reactions during and after the Shoah, the question of rescue during the Shoah, reactions in North America, and more. Rescue attempts ranging from the town of Oświęcim (Auschwitz) to Alaska; Jewish survival strategies in Germany; Israeli remembrance of the Righteous Among the Nations and grappling with the memory of Jewish policemen in Poland; information and reactions in Canada; and reviews of recent important books highlight the latest issue.
