One of his best known books is ''Aryanisation' in Hamburg: The Economic Exclusion of Jews and the Confiscation of Their Property in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945'' which reviewer Martin Dean described as "path-breaking" because of its focus on the early period of persecution of the Jews and the participation of the German population in the seizure of Jewish property'':''
''Frank Bajohr's path-breaking work is an excellent regional study that anticipated the direction of much recent scholarship and points the way for others to follow. When first published in 1997, his monograph went against the predominant line of research on Nazi Germany, a trend that had sought to explain the persecution of the Jews mainly in terms of the centralized structures of Himmler and Heydrich's security forces. Bajohr, by contrast, focuses on the early period of persecution before the start of the war and describes the participation of many different strata of the population in the economic persecution and spoliation of Germany's Jews. His analysis of the progressive exclusion of Jews from the local economy, the "Aryanization" of their businesses, and the seizure of their property emphasizes the cumulative and self-radicalizing nature of this process.:''Bajohr is currently head of the Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute of Contemporary History in Munich and a member of the Project Management Board at the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI).
