* Volume 16, The Holocaust: Selected Documents in Eighteen Volumes. Introduction by Dr. Sybil Milton, Director of Archives, Leo Baeck Institute. During the closing months of the Second World War, top priorities of the Nazi leadership included desperate attempts to obtain supplies and efforts to disrupt the unity of the Allies. Individual high-ranking Nazis, moreover, tried to create a more favorable postwar image of themselves by arranging negotiations designed to alleviate some of the suffering that their regime had caused. Several of these negotiations were carried on in Switzerland. The records selected for reproduction in this volume concern Saly Mayer, the Swiss representative of the American Joint Distribution Committee, who conducted negotiations with SS Colonel Kurt Becher on the exchange of Jewish lives for goods; and former Federal Swiss Councillor Jean Marie Musy, who was able to negotiate the release of a trainload of Jews from Nazi Germany to Switzerland. Contains 66 documents of source materials, carefully chosen from the thousands preserved at the U.S. National Archives. A detailed table of contents lists and provides the source for each document.
