The volume is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Franklin H. Littell and opens with an article about him by Yehuda Bauer. The contributors include: Dan Michman and Sarit Shavit on the 1960s correspondence between Leni Yahil and Hannah Arendt revolving around the Eichmann trial, the Jewish People, and Israel; Laszlo Karsai on Arrow Cross leader Ferenc Szalasi’s wartime diary in 1943-1944; Claude Klein on a 1944 survivor testimony following a harrowing escape from France to Switzerland; Oula Silvennoinen’s article on Finland’s alliance with Nazi Germany pioneers an open examination of that country’s role in the war and the Holocaust; and Roni Stauber’s on the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s internal debate regarding reparations and relations with Germany. Two review articles, by Natan Sznaider on Dov Schidorsky’s Burning Scrolls and Flying Letters and Yfaat Weiss on Moshe Zimmerman’s Deutsche gegen Deutsche, round out this rich and varied volume.
