Holocaust and Justice

Holocaust and Justice – Representation and Historiography of the Holocaust in Post-War Trials

Edited by David Bankier and Dan Michman
In association with Berghahn Books

The historical significance of the Nuremberg Trials is widely acknowledged, and it is equally agreed by most people today that the murder of European Jewry was the greatest crime committed by the Third Reich. So why wasn’t the Holocaust a central issue in any of the thirteen trials of the International Military Tribunal conducted in Germany between 1945 and 1949? This book addresses the place of the Holocaust and its coverage by the media in the post war trials of Nazi criminals conducted in various European countries.

A Physician Inside the Warsaw Ghetto

A Physician Inside the Warsaw Ghetto, 1939-1943

Mordechai Lensky
Foreword by Samuel Kassow

A gripping account of a Jewish doctor in the Warsaw Ghetto, struggling against all odds to provide medical care to a community condemned to squalor, disease, and death. The memoir also provides singular insights into many aspects of ghetto life, including the massive building of bunkers in late 1942 and early 1943. The Lensky family escaped the ghetto in March 1943 and hid on the “Aryan” side of Warsaw under assumed identities.
