"Yitzhak Arad has produced a notable work that is particularly valuable for its comprehensive documentation of Nazi crimes over a large geographic area." Waitman W. Beorn, Holocaust and Genocide Studies "[The Holocaust in the Soviet Union] is a magisterial work of great significance. Particularly for readers more familiar with the Holocaust in western Europe and occupied Poland, there is a great deal to learn from it." Maarten Pereboom, Shofar "This book is a supreme achievement and an essential work for all Holocaust libraries." Hallie Cantor, Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter "A masterful synthesis... This study provides a much-needed panoramic view in a field that has produced mostly regional and microstudies in the past two decades... Arad's remarkable tome has both an encyclopedic as well as broad-brush quality to it that makes it required reading in Holocaust Studies." Bradley D. Woodworth, Russian Review "Arad's book constitutes a welcome and valuable contribution to Holocaust scholarship." earunas Liekis, Journal of Baltic Studies
