The Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (1990) has been called "the most recognized reference book on the Holocaust".[1] It was published in an English-language translated edition by Macmillan in tandem with the Hebrew language original edition published by Yad Vashem (יד ושם), the Holocaust Remembrance Authority in Israel. All its contributors are reputable Holocaust scholars and academics.[1] Although the encyclopedia is easy to read and use and contains no disturbing pictures, it is not recommended for users younger than high school age.

The Encyclopedia was the winner of the 1991 American Library Association’s Dartmouth Medal.
