“…A Justification to the World and Israel?”
Holocaust Discourses in German TV: The Case of West Germany, with an Afterword on East Germany
Sabine Horn

The Auschwitz Trial was the first major West German hearing that dealt with crimes committed in concentration and extermination camps. The trial is regarded a milestone in the public debate of the Holocaust within West Germany, and its media coverage played a crucial role in this debate. The Majdanek Trial was the last of the major West German lawsuits that debated the crimes of National Socialism. Among the questions this article deals with: How the TV media presentation of Nazi crimes changed between the 1960s and early 1980s, utilizing a diachronic comparison of the West German TV coverage of these two trials? How the legal discourses on law and justice evolved? Which images of perpetrators and victims endured and which changed? NIS 36 NIS 28 Order from our Online Store.

Portugal, Salazar, and the Jews

Portugal, Salazar, and the Jews

Avraham Milgram

The racial persecution and condemnation of Jews in Europe during the 1930s occurred in an anti-liberal atmosphere, disillusioned with democracy and yearning for strong leadership. Portugal, which saw everything from the privileged position of a neutral country, was not immune to the moral and ethical challenge raised by the events in Europe, and its relationship with the persecuted Jews was ambivalent. Based on wide range documentation, this pioneering historical research rigorously examines the main protagonists in this drama: Salazar, the dictator of Portugal; his police (PVDE); the Portuguese political and social elite; the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; the leaders of the Jewish community of Lisbon; the refugees; and more.
