Justice Matters; Legacies of the Holocaust and World War II Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Justice Matters; Legacies of the Holocaust and World War II

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. Weissmark argues that the cycle of ethnic and religious strife is kept alive generation after generation through story-telling, with each side recounting the injustice it suffered and the valor it showed in avenging its own group. She describes how these stories or "legacies" transmit moral values, beliefs, and emotions and thus preserve the past.
