Maxime Steinberg — Brussels, 1936−2010

Maxime Steinberg, a pioneer in Holocaust research, passed away in Brussels on July 26, 2010. He wrote the history of the Shoah and the Resistance of the Jews in Belgium. His magnum opus, L’Étoile et le fusil (The [Yellow] Star and the Rifle), published between 1983 and 1987, is still today considered to be the standard work on the topic. Steinberg established a strong research platform on the subject of the deportation of Belgian Jewry, made significant contributions to the prosecution in the courts of the “crime of the century,” and also helped shape how the Holocaust came to be treated and taught in the schools, and presented in museums.
