Synopsis

In a makeshift courtroom set up inside Hitler's first concentration camp, Denson was charged with building a team from lawyers who had no background in war crimes and determining charges for crimes that courts had never before confirmed. Among the accused were Dr. Klaus Schilling, responsible for hundreds of deaths in his research" for a cure for malaria; Edwin Katzen-Ellenbogen, a Harvard psychologist turned Gestapo informant; and one of history's most notorious female war criminals, Ilse Koch, Bitch of Buchenwald," whose penchant for tattooed skins and human bone lamps made headlines worldwide.Denson, just 32 years old, with one criminal trial to his name, led a brilliant and successful prosecution, but nearly two years of exposure to such horrors took its toll. His wife divorced him, his weight dropped to 116 pounds, and he collapsed from exhaustion. Worst of all was the pressure from his army superiors to bring the trials to a rapid end when their agenda shifted away from punishing Nazis to winning the Germans' support in the emerging Cold War. Denson persevered, determined to create a careful record of responsibility for the crimes of the Holocaust.

When, in a final shocking twist, the United States used clandestine reversals and commutation of sentences to set free those found guilty at Dachau, Denson risked his army career to try to prevent justice from being undone.Originally published in hardcover by Random House in 2001, this is the first time Justice at Dachau is available in paperback.

The New York Times described Joshua M. Greene as a storyteller...who traces journeys to enlightenment." In 1982, after living thirteen years in the ashrams of India and Europe, he returned to his native New York City and produced a series of Emmy award-nominated children's films for The Disney Channel and PBS. In 1995, he became Director of Programming for Cablevision, the nation's fifth largest cable provider. From 1999 to 2002 he served as Senior Vice President at Ruder Finn, New York's largest public relations firm, where he advised faith communities on their role in peacekeeping initiatives. In 2000, Mr. Greene was appointed Director of Strategic Planning for the United States Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders. That year, his book Witness: Voices from the Holocaust was produced as a feature film for PBS. His next book, Justice at Dachau, revealed the story of the largest yet least known series of war crimes trials in history. His editorials on tribunals in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay appeared in the Los Angeles Times and the International Herald Tribune. Mr. Greene is a frequent lecturer and has spoken at the Pentagon, the World Economic Forum, the New York Public Library Distinguished Author series, and numerous universities. He serves on the boards of several non-profits an d provides volunteer family meditation services.
