Red Holocaust is a 2009 non-fiction book on mass killings under Communist regimes by Steven Rosefielde, published by Routledge. The book investigates political violence by communist regimes in the Soviet Union, eastern and central Europe, North Korea, China, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from 1929 to 2009, and argues that they constitute crimes against humanity. It then compares this results with the Jewish Holocaust and the Japanese Asian holocaust.
Rosefielde argues that the communist "crimes against humanity" constitute a Red Holocaust that exceeds the combined carnage of the French Reign of Terror, Ha Shoah, Showa Japan's Asian holocaust, and all combat deaths in World War I and II".
The book includes a comprehensive study of the "transcommunist holocaust" as well as a judicial assessment of culpability and special pleadings.
