His extensive publications set the methodology of Holocaust research, continuing the brilliant traditions of Polish Jewish historiography.

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

Editors: David Bankier and Dan Michman

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 conducted by the International Military Tribunal 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. NIS 174
