Yad Vashem Studies, Vol. 37:2

Dr. David Silberklang
This volume of Yad Vashem Studies is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Franklin Littell and opens with an article about him by Yehuda Bauer. The volume includes five research articles on a variety of subjects and two review articles on recent important books. Three articles present and analyze three different types of documentation: Dan Michman and Sarit Shavit on the 1960s correspondence between Leni Yahil and Hannah Arendt revolving around the Eichmann trial, the Jewish People, and Israel; László Karsai on Arrow Cross leader Ferenc Szálasi’s wartime diary in 1943-44; and Claude Klein on a 1944 survivor testimony following a harrowing escape from France to Switzerland. Oula Silvennoinen’s article on Finland’s alliance with Nazi Germany pioneers an open examination of that country’s role in the war and the Holocaust, and Roni Stauber’s on the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s internal debate regarding reparations and relations with Germany, together with review articles by Natan Sznaider on Dov Schidorsky’s Burning Scrolls and Flying Letters, and Yfaat Weiss on Moshe Zimmerman’s Deutsche gegen Deutsche round out this rich and varied volume.
