The research and review articles in Yad Vashem Studies 39:2 address questions of motivations and reactions of the various types of actors in the Shoah. Scholars from eight countries provide a wide variety of answers and insights to the questions of motivation, participation, reactions, and remembrance. From small forced-labor camps and local Germans, to Dutch Nazis and nationalists, to East European collaborators, to visions of Greater Germany and the death marches near the end of the war, the motivations of the perpetrators and their partners were many and complex. Similarly, the motivations behind the postwar relations between non-Jewish rescuers of Jews and their erstwhile charges were often complex. There has been much research on the reactions of Jews to Nazi persecution, yet here we present an article that portrays and analyzes heretofore-unknown German Jewish responses to the Nazi regimes policies from a fresh and surprising perspective. These and more are among the issues addressed in the research and review articles in volume 39, number 2 of Yad Vashem Studies. The research articles are by: Wolf Gruner, Geraldien von Frijtag Drabbe Kunzel, Hermann Weiss, Mordechai Altshuler, and Joanna Michlic; while David Cesarani, Christoph Dieckmann, Erich Haberer, Konrad Kwiet, Jochen Böhler, and Yechiam Weitz contribute in-depth review articles on recent and important books that have generated extensive discussion.
