Drawing on the trials of Maurice Papon, Adolf Eichmann, and Ivan Demjanjuk, Professor Lawrence Douglas will examine how domestic national criminal law in France, Israel, and Germany influenced the prosecution of Holocaust perpetrators and collaborators. He is the author of The Memory of Judgment: Making Law and History in the Trials of the Holocaust (Yale University Press, 2001) and co-editor of ten books on contemporary legal issues. Professor Douglas covered the Demjanjuk trial for Harper's magazine and has written articles published in the Yale Law Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and New York Times Book Review, among others.
