Description

This book provides a distinctive approach to understanding the Holocaust in specifically legal terms. No one interested in either the Holocaust itself or the ways in which we prosecute human rights violations will want to miss its informed, compelling discussion." John Torpey, Presidential Professor of Sociology and History, and Director, Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, Graduate Center, City University of New York

Résumé
A great deal of contemporary law has a direct connection to the Holocaust. That connection, however, is seldom acknowledged in legal texts and has never been the subject of a full-length scholarly work. This book examines the background of the Holocaust and genocide through the prism of the law; the criminal and civil prosecution of the Nazis and their collaborators for Holocaust-era crimes; and contemporary attempts to criminally prosecute perpetrators for the crime of genocide. It provides the history of the Holocaust as a legal event, and sets out how genocide has become known as the "crime of crimes" under both international law and in popular discourse. It goes on to discuss specific post-Holocaust legal topics, and examines the Holocaust as a catalyst for post-Holocaust international justice. Together, this collection of subjects establishes a new legal discipline, which the author Michael Bazyler labels "Post-Holocaust Law."
