In this essay, Natan Sznaider reviews three books and a journal article on the German-Jewish example of reparations following the Holocaust: The Guilt of Nations: Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices (Elazar Barkan); When Sorry Isn’t Emough: The Controversy over Apologies and Reparations for Human Injustice (Roy L. Brooks, ed.); Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: Facing History after Genocide and Mass Violence (Martha Minow); and “ ‘Making Whole What Has Been Smashed’: Reflections on Reparationsâ€? (John Torpey). The reviewed writings explore how that example of reparations has become a key to developing a new form of politics for the global age. Sznaider summarizes the authors’ main points and discusses a number of key issues relating to reparations and restitution.
