New Editions and Old Mistakes: Some Remarks on the Last German Edition of G. Reitlinger’s The Final Solution

Reitlinger’s book, a historian’s attempt to expose the dimensions of the “Final Solution,” first appeared in 1953 and in German translation in 1956 and during the next eight years in newer editions. However, it is marred by errors, distortions, and inconsistencies which have led others to come to mistaken conclusions, especially concerning happenings and timings in Rumania and Transnistria where the numbers of victims are inaccurate, sometimes grossly so. The Warsaw ghetto uprising is played down, even belittled.
