This bibliography includes English-language first-person accounts
of individuals who survived or witnessed, as bystanders,
journalists, diplomats, or liberators, genocidal acts in this
century. The primary focus is on diaries, letters, memoirs,
autobiographies, oral histories, interviews and statements in
newspaper articles or other texts. A secondary focus is on reports,
films, microfilm collections, and archives that contain
first-person accounts, essays about first-person accounts, and
bibliographies that list first-person accounts. Although there are
bibliographies devoted to specific genocidal acts and one general
bibliography on genocide, this volume is the first to cover
first-person accounts. The volume opens with a lengthy introductory
essay on genocide. It then devotes chapters to specific genocidal
acts, including German extermination of the Hereros, Ottoman
genocide of the Armenians, Soviet-induced famine in the Ukraine,
the Soviet's Great Purge, the Soviet deportation of whole nations,
the Holocaust, Gypsies during the Holocaust, Indonesian genocide of
Communists and suspected Communists, Ugandan genocides, Pakistani
genocide in Bangladesh, Burundi genocide of the Hutus, Indonesian
genocide in East Timor, the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia,
threatened genocide of the Baha'is, and genocide of various
indigenous peoples. The chapters are subdivided by type of account,
and all entries are annotated. The work includes subject and author
indexes. The book will be a useful resource for historians,
political scientists, and sociologists interested in genocide and
international human relations.
