The Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial, 1963-1965: Genocide, History, and the Limits of the Law
The Frankfurt Auschwitz trial was the largest, most public, and most important trial of Holocaust perpetrators conducted in West German courts. Drawing on a wide range of archival sources, Devin O. Pendas provides a comprehensive history of this momentous event. Situating the trial in a thorough analysis of West German criminal law, the book argues that in confronting systematic, state-sponsored genocide, the Frankfurt court ran up against the limits of law. This book also provides a compelling account of the divided response to the trial among the West German public.
