Lecture and Panel Discussion at the GHI
Speakers: Heiko Maas (Federal Minister of Justice), Manfred Görtemaker (University of Potsdam) 
Christoph Safferling (University of Marburg), and Eli Rosenbaum (U.S. Department of Justice)

The recent publication of Die Rosenburg: Das Bundesministerium der Justiz und die NS-Vergangenheit has prompted a closer look at the historical continuities between the Third Reich and the Federal Republic within the Ministry of Justice.

Following a short lecture by the Federal Minister of Justice Heiko Maas, the panel discussion will provide new insight into the ongoing work of the independent commission tasked with investigating the early history of the Justice Ministry in West Germany as well as its Nazi past.

In cooperation with the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection and the Leo Baeck Institute.
