Transitional Justice in Divided Germany After 1945

Cohen, David



The author explore the aspects of coming to terms with the past in attempt to identify key features of relevance to problems of transitional justice. The author organizes the analysis around four aspects of German experience:
1. Allied attempts to punish German war criminals in national and international military tribunals.
2. Denazification programs and other measures designed to isolate or neutralize dangerous elements in the four zones, and the German reaction to them.
3. German attempts to achieve justice for Nazi criminality.
4. Other aspects of the political context of transitional justice in Germany. This includes the ostensible failure of denazification and the paradox of the success of the Bundesrepublik’s (BRD) Rechtstaat in the face of the apparent re-nazification”of BRD institutions. The discussion will for the most part focus on the period 1945-1950.
