This work is an examination of the very first systematic attempt to bring before the courts and prosecute those who had directly or indirectly contributed to a crime against humanity by informing upon others during the National Socialist era in Germany. Szanajda looks at the theoretical and practical problems associated with this process and examines of how this process actually worked in practice in the immediate postwar era in the Western Occupation Zones and the Federal Republic of Germany.
