Holocaust, Genocide, and the Law : A Quest for Justice in a Post-Holocaust World Hardback
A great deal of contemporary law has a direct connection to the Holocaust.
That connection, however, is seldom acknowledged in legal texts and has never been the subject of a full-length scholarly work.
This book examines the background of the Holocaust and genocide through the prism of the law; the criminal and civil prosecution of the Nazis and their collaborators for Holocaust-era crimes; and contemporary attempts to criminally prosecute perpetrators for the crime of genocide.
It provides the history of the Holocaust as a legal event, and sets out how genocide has become known as the "crime of crimes" under both international law and in popular discourse.
It goes on to discuss specific post-Holocaust legal topics, and examines the Holocaust as a catalyst for post-Holocaust international justice.
Together, this collection of subjects establishes a new legal discipline, which the author Michael Bazyler labels "Post-Holocaust Law."
