(p.197) Chapter 10 The Visibility of the Holocaust: Franz Neumann and the Nuremburg Trials
Social Theory after the Holocaust

Michael Salter

Liverpool University Press

This chapter contains an essay by Michael Salter that discusses the new-found interest in the significance of the work of Franz Neuman and his group of research analysts regarding the Nuremberg Trials. It outlines the hurdles that the present study presents to the claims that Neumann's group of research analysts failed to carry out their official and moral responsibilities to the prosecution's preparation, which resulted in the undermined place which the Holocaust took within the case of the prosecution. The essay also analyses Neumann's theory on anti-semitism and his assumptions, concluding with a lesson: Neumann's activism and issues led to the notion that theories are not about theories, but rather a continuous process which moulds underlying processes and relationships.

Keywords:   Franz Neumann, Nuremberg Trials, moral responsibilities, prosecution, anti-semitism
