Research on the work of Joseph Wulf (1912-1974) has focused primarily, until now, on his role in the West German debate on the Nazi past. He is seen as an isolated outsider whose views and perspectives were not accepted by established historians. Based, in particular, on his personal papers, presents here a systematic evaluation of Wulf's early Holocaust historiography, both in the immediate postwar years in Poland and from the 1950s in Berlin. Wulf, a survivor of Auschwitz, was active in the Kraków and later the Central Polish Jewish Historical Commission, where he developed his distinctive methodology. Demonstrates that although his work has left no lasting traces in the research on contemporary history, he achieved significant success in the eyes of the general public, especially due to the massive collections of documents which he published together with Léon Poliakov.
