Informations and abstract

Keywords: Post-Nazi Germany, Post-Communist Germany, Transitions, Political Justice.

German history has encountered the hard question of transitional justice and the problem of punishing State crimes on two different occasions (in 1945 when the Nazi dictatorship was defeated and in 1989/90 when the communist regime collapsed). The paper analyzes the intertwinement of law and politics in the process of «overcoming the past» by means of a comparison between criminal trials in post-Nazi Germany (FRG and GDR) and criminal trials in post-Communist Germany.
