Sarah Schädler deals with the Ministry of Justice under Dr. Otto Georg Thierack, who was the Minister of Justice during the final stages of the National Socialism. She focuses on the National Socialist judicial reform, which was partially implemented during the last years of the war. She analyzes a multitude of source material, most of which had not been published until now. In her study, she shows that the National Socialist leadership was trying to redefine the functions of justice entirely. Apart from the changes made in the organization of the Ministry of Justice itself, the author deals with the major legal projects initiated by Thierack, in particular the draft of the »Community Aliens Act« ( Gemeinschaftsfremdengesetz). The description of that act demonstrates not only the National Socialist vision of society but also shows the competition between the political police and the justice of National Socialism.
The book won the Werner Pünder Award.
