Can there ever be justice for the Holocaust? During the 1990s - triggered by lawsuits in the United States against Swiss banks, German corporations, insurance companies, and owners of valuable works of art - claimants and their lawyers sought to rectify terrible wrongs committed more than a half century earlier. ""Some Measure of Justice"" explores this most recent wave of justice-seeking for the Holocaust: what it has been, why it emerged when it did, how it fits with earlier reparation to the Jewish people, its significance for the historical representation of the Holocaust, and its implications for justice-seeking in our time. Writings on the subject of Holocaust reparations have largely come from participants, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, and social scientists specializing in restitution. In ""Some Measure of Justice"" Michael Marrus takes up the issue as a historian deeply involved with legal issues. He engages with larger questions about historical understanding and historical interpretation as they enter the legal arena. Ultimately this book asks, What constitutes justice for a great historic wrong? And, Is such justice possible?
