60 years after the trials of the main German war criminals, the articles in this book attempt to assess the Nuremberg Trials from a historical and legal point of view, and to illustrate connections, contradictions and consequences. In view of constantly reoccurring reports of mass crimes from all over the world, we have only reached the halfway point in the quest for an effective system of international criminal justice. With the legacy of Nuremberg in mind, this volume is a contribution to the search for answers to questions of how the law can be applied effectively and those committing crimes against humanity be brought to justice for their actions.

Filming the End of the Holocaust

Allied Documentaries, Nuremberg and the Liberation of the Concentration Camps

Filming the End of the Holocaust considers how the US Government commissioned the US Signal Corps and other filmmakers to document the horrors of the concentration camps during the April-May 1945 liberation. The evidence of the Nazis' genocidal actions amassed in these films, some of them made by Hollywood luminaries such as John Ford and Billy Wilder, would go on to have a major impact at the Nuremberg Trials; they helped to indict Nazi officials as the judges witnessed scenes of torture, human experimentation and extermination of Jews and non-Jews in the gas chambers and crematoria. These films, some produced by the Soviets, were integral to the war crime trials that followed the Holocaust and the Second World War, and this book provides a thorough, close analysis of the footage in these films and their historical significance. Using research carried out at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the US National Archives and the film collection at the National Center for Jewish Film at Brandeis University, this book explores the rationale for filming the atrocities and their use in the subsequent trials of Nazi officials in greater detail than anything previously published. Including an extensive bibliography and filmography, Filming the End of the Holocaust is an important text for scholars and students of the Holocaust and its aftermath.

Es hielt uns am Leben

Humor im Holocaust

Dieses Buch „Es hielt uns am Leben. Humor im Holocaust“ bietet eine positive Antwort auf die Frage, wie Humor bei der Bewältigung der schrecklichen Realität geholfen hat. Interviews mit Überlebenden beschreiben schreckliche Ereignisse, die mit makaberem Humor verwoben sind. Humor während des Holocaust verminderte nicht die objektiven Erfahrungen, sondern linderte die emotionale Reaktion auf die Schrecken. Humor und Lachen können helfen, die mentale und körperliche Gesundheit zu stärken, zu heilen und zu erhalten, kann aber Menschen helfen, mit einem Trauma umzugehen, dessen Auswirkungen so schwerwiegend sind wie der Holocaust? Chaya Ostrower klassifiziert die Arten von Humor und Witze und studiert ihre jeweiligen Funktionen in den Ghettos, Konzentrationslager und Todeslager. Enthalten in dem Buch sind humorvolle Ditties, Songs und Kabarett Skizzen, sowie die einzigartige Geschichte von zwei Ghetto-Clowns. Überlebende wussten immer um die Existenz von Lachen und Humor während des Holocaust. Die Jahrzehnte, die seit der Befreiung vergangen sind, geben uns nun die Möglichkeit, dieses sensible Thema mit Abstand zu betrachten.

Sixty years have passed since the Nuremberg trials of the major Nazi war criminals, but that event still stands as the foundation of international justice. Nuremberg not only ignited a revolution in international law but affected domestic law as well with its simple but profound priniciple that every individual accused of crime is entitled to a full and fair hearing.This book reveals how the precedents set at Nuremberg have affected human rights, race relations, medical practice, big business and even Germany's post-war development. It also examines the Nuremberg trials' influence on the modern war crimes trials of tyrants like Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein.

Der ehemalige SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann gilt als einer der Hauptverantwortlichen für die »Endlösung« der Juden in Europa. Der Prozess gegen ihn fand 1961 in Jerusalem statt. Hannah Arendts Prozessbericht wurde von ihr 1964 als Buch publiziert und brachte eine Lawine ins Rollen: Es stieß bei seinem Erscheinen auf heftige Ablehnung in Israel, Deutschland und in den USA– und wurde zu einem Klassiker wie kaum ein anderes vergleichbares Werk zur Zeitgeschichte und ihrer Deutung.

Die Geschichte der nationalsozialistischen Konzentrationslager

"Ergreifend, zutiefst menschlich und großartig erzählt." (Sir Richard Evans) Ein historisches Werk, das seinesgleichen sucht: Nikolaus Wachsmanns lang erwartete, monumentale Geschichte der Konzentrationslager von den improvisierten Anfängen 1933 bis zu ihrer Auflösung 1945. Diese erste umfassende Darstellung vereint auf eindrückliche Weise sowohl die Perspektive der Täter als auch jene der Opfer, sie zeigt die monströse Dynamik der Vernichtungspolitik und verleiht zugleich den Gefangenen und Gequälten eine Stimme. Ein gewaltiges Buch – erschütternd und erhellend zugleich. Für seine Geschichte der Konzentrationslager hat Nikolaus Wachsmann eine enorme Menge an Quellen und Forschungsliteratur ausgewertet, Tagebücher und Briefe der Lagerinsassen, Prozessunterlagen, SS- und Polizeiakten, ein Teil davon erstmals hier verwendet. Auf diese Weise konnte er die Praktiken der Täter, die Einstellungen der Gesellschaft und die Welt der Opfer in einem großen epischen Rahmen zusammenführen, konnte das Leben und Sterben im Lager, die individuellen Schicksale schildern, aber auch die politischen, ökonomischen und militärischen Umstände, die Hintergründe der NS-Vernichtungspolitik. Beides, die Nahaufnahme wie die historische Entwicklung, vereint Wachsmann zu einer eindringlichen Erzählung – ein historisches Werk, das, wie Ian Kershaw schreibt »kaum jemals übertroffen werden wird«.

In the past sixty years, oral history has moved from the periphery to the mainstream of academic studies and is now employed as a research tool by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, medical therapists, documentary film makers, and educators at all levels. The Oxford Handbook of Oral History brings together forty authors on five continents to address the evolution of oral history, the impact of digital technology, the most recent methodological and archival issues, and the application of oral history to both scholarly research and public presentations. The volume is addressed to seasoned practitioners as well as to newcomers, offering diverse perspectives on the current state of the field and its likely future developments. Some of its chapters survey large areas of oral history research and examine how they developed; others offer case studies that deal with specific projects, issues, and applications of oral history. From the Holocaust, the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commissions, the Falklands War in Argentina, the Velvet Revolution in Eastern Europe, to memories of September 11, 2001 and of Hurricane Katrina, the creative and essential efforts of oral historians worldwide are examined and explained in this multipurpose handbook.

Reassessing the Nuremberg Military Tribunals

Transitional Justice, Trial Narratives, and Historiography

Publisher: Berghahn Books

ISBN: 0857455303

Category: History

Page: 321

For decades the history of the US Military Tribunals at Nuremberg (NMT) has been eclipsed by the first Nuremberg trial-the International Military Tribunal or IMT. The dominant interpretation-neatly summarized in the ubiquitous formula of "Subsequent Trials"-ignores the unique historical and legal character of the NMT trials, which differed significantly from that of their predecessor. The NMT trials marked a decisive shift both in terms of analysis of the Third Reich and conceptualization of international criminal law. This volume is the first comprehensive examination of the NMT and brings together diverse perspectives from the fields of law, history, and political science, exploring the genesis, impact, and legacy of the twelve Military Tribunals held at Nuremberg between 1946 and 1949.

Prelude to Nuremberg

Allied War Crimes Policy and the Question of Punishment

Author: Arieh J. Kochavi

Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press

ISBN: 0807866873

Category: History

Page: 328

View: 2511

Between November 1945 and October 1946, the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg tried some of the most notorious political and military figures of Nazi Germany. The issue of punishing war criminals was widely discussed by the leaders of the Allied nations, however, well before the end of the war. As Arieh Kochavi demonstrates, the policies finally adopted, including the institution of the Nuremberg trials, represented the culmination of a complicated process rooted in the domestic and international politics of the war years. Drawing on extensive research, Kochavi painstakingly reconstructs the deliberations that went on in Washington and London at a time when the Germans were perpetrating their worst crimes. He also examines the roles of the Polish and Czech governments-in-exile, the Soviets, and the United Nations War Crimes Commission in the formulation of a joint policy on war crimes, as well as the neutral governments' stand on the question of asylum for war criminals. This compelling account thereby sheds new light on one of the most important and least understood aspects of World War II.

Der Buchenwald-Report

Bericht über das Konzentrationslager Buchenwald bei Weimar

Author: David A. Hackett

Publisher: C.H.Beck

ISBN: 3406722067

Category: History

Page: 456

View: 2011

Als das Konzentrationslager Buchenwald am 11. April 1945 von Einheiten der 3. U.S. Army befreit wurde, befand sich in deren Gefolge ein Intelligence-Team unter der Leitung des jüdischen Offiziers Albert G. Rosenberg. Es hatte die Aufgabe, Erkenntnisse über die Geschichte Buchenwalds und die Zustände im Lager zu sammeln. Um dieses Team bei seiner Arbeit zu unterstützen, wurde von den befreiten Häftlingen ein Komitee ins Leben gerufen, das innerhalb von nur vier Wochen einen 125seitigen Bericht über das Konzentrationslager verfaßte. Federführender Kopf dabei war der Österreicher Eugen Kogon. Gleichzeitig haben ca. 120 Häftlinge ihre Lagererfahrungen dokumentiert. Ihre Aussagen haben sich in 168 Einzeltexten niedergeschlagen, in denen praktisch alle Aspekte des Lagerlebens und -sterbens festgehalten sind. Beide Textkörper, Bericht und Zeugenaussagen, eröffnen einen beispiellos detaillierten Einblick in den gesamten Mikrokosmos der Lagerwelt, seine Strukturen, seine Mechanismen, seinen «Alltag» und seine vollkommene, jeden Lebensbereich erfassende Inhumanität. Geschrieben direkt nach der Befreiung, noch unter dem akuten Eindruck des Erlebten, vermitteln diese Berichte Innenansichten einer Welt des Grauens, die den Leser an die Grenzen der Vorstellungskraft führen. In der Literatur zur Geschichte des Holocaust darf dieses Buch der Häftlinge von Buchenwald Anspruch auf einen besonderen Platz erheben.
