‘‘What happens when a nation tries to deal with its own genocidal past, using its own criminal code, in its own state courts?’’ (2). This is one of the questions that Rebecca Wittmann, professor of history at the University of Toronto, poses at the outset of her book Beyond Justice: The Auschwitz Trial. The book deals with the trial of twenty individuals alleged to have been involved in the atrocities that took place in the Auschwitz death camp during World War II.
