Reckonings: Legacies of Nazi Persecution and the Quest for Justice
21 November 2018
European Institute Fellow, Mary Fulbrook, Professor of German History at UCL, has recently published a landmark new book. Reckonings: Legacies of Nazi Persecution and the Quest for Justice, published by Oxford University Press, was released in October 2018, and is available to purchase as a hardback or ebook.
Professor Fulbrook is one of the world's most respected scholars on the Holocaust. This book investigates the long-term legacy of Nazi violence among perpetrators as well as victims, and it uses memory studies and oral histories to uncover buried personal and cultural memories. The book contains new research which shows up to a million people were involved in the extermination of Jews in Hitler’s death camps, yet only 6,600 were convicted. Coverage of the book has been featured in Time Magazine and The Mail on Sunday.
