About the Author

Ronen Steinke is editor at Süddeutsche Zeitung and author of The Muslim and the Jew (in German).

Sinead Crowe divides her time between teaching English at the University of Hamburg and translating. She is translator (with Rachel McNicholl) of Pierre Jarawan's The Storyteller.


What is clear - and what this book makes clear - is that without people like Fritz Bauer there would have been none of this prosecution of Nazi atrocities, no trials for Auschwitz camp guards or Adolf Eichmann, no rehabilitation of the German resistance against Hitler. Ronen Steinke deserves thanks for bringing this message of Fritz Bauer back to light in such an accessible form, balancing professional distance and sympathy.

This book is an important contribution as there aren't many rel-evant materials available in the English language.

-- "Association of Jewish Libraries"

Ronen Steinke's biography of Bauer gives a masterful account of the jurist's dramatic life, drawing on a wealth of primary sources, including court proceedings, private letters, and press reports
