The July 9, 2015 issue of
The New York Review of Books
features a review of
Forgotten Trials of the Holocaust
(New York University Press, 2014) – Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law Professor Michael Bazyler’s latest book, co-authored with Professor Frank M. Tuerkheimer (University of Wisconsin Law School). The book review, entitled “
Anatomy of Hell
” and focused on a select group of recent books on the Holocaust and its aftermath, was written by noted British Holocaust historian Richard J. Evans, who serves as Regius Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Cambridge and President of Wolfson College, Cambridge.

From Professor Evans’s review:

“Few of these trials are now widely remembered. Forgotten Trials of the Holocaust, by the legal scholars Michael J. Bazyler and Frank M. Tuerkheimer, is thus especially welcome. Some of these trials, of course, have been the subject of scholarly investigation in their own right, but in bringing all the trials together and contrasting the varying styles of their conduct in the different jurisdictions studied the authors have done legal scholars and students a service.”
