“Focusing on such disparate and under-explored topics as corporate conduct during the Holocaust, the changing nature of European nations’ reparations practices, and the quality of postwar American military commission trials (as distinct from the IMT Nuremberg prosecution), Goda has assembled a fascinating and informative collection of essays. The book not only explores these matters, but each essay provides lavish footnotes and a detailed ‘select bibliography’ to facilitate further inquiry.” • American Historical Review
“This volume is a tremendously exciting and thought-provoking exploration of understudied aspects of Holocaust justice. It fills a major lacuna in the literature.” • Katrin Paehler, author of The Third Reich's Intelligence Services: The Career of Walter Schellenberg
“This is an exceptional collection. It assembles interesting and often methodologically innovative chapters that contribute genuinely new knowledge to the field of Holocaust justice.” • Hilary Earl, Nipissing University
Since the end of World War II, the ongoing efforts aimed at criminal prosecution, restitution, and other forms of justice in the wake of the Holocaust have constituted one of the most significant episodes in the history of human rights and international law. As such, they have attracted sustained attention from historians and legal scholars. This edited collection substantially enlarges the topical and disciplinary scope of this burgeoning field, exploring such varied subjects as literary analysis of Hannah Arendt’s work, the restitution case for Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze, and the ritualistic aspects of criminal trials.
