Springing from an unprecedented meeting between the sons and daughters of Holocaust survivors and the children of Nazis, JUSTICE MATTERS explores the psychology of hatred and ethnic resentment.

She describes how these stories or "legacies" transmit moral values, beliefs, and emotions and thus preserve the past.
