Mohr Siebeck has published a new book on the criminal punishment of German judicial crime after 1945.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In the aftermath of 1945, why were practitioners of law rarely sentenced for the crimes they committed during the Nazi era? Was it because the judges themselves were former Nazi party members or sympathisers? For Alexander Hoeppel, this train of thought does not go far enough: his study reveals that German jurisprudence actually went to the extent of adopting a legal doctrine that shielded judges and other legal professionals from being prosecuted for crimes committed in office – and continues to do so even to this day.
