Holocaust, Genocide, and the Law

Holocaust, Genocide, and the Law A Quest for Justice in a Post-Holocaust World MICHAEL (PROFESSOR OF LAW AND THE 1939 SOCIETY SCHOLAR IN HOLOCAUST AND HUMAN RIGHTS STUDIES, Professor of Law and The 1939 Society Scholar in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies, Chapman University, Fowler School of Law) Bazyler

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."
