This introductory chapter begins with a brief explanation of the purpose of the book, which is to show that the war crimes trials did little to clarify conceptualizations of Nazi criminality in the public sphere anywhere. Sometimes they actually muddied the waters by drawing attention away from the victims of Nazi genocide and onto much more ambiguous symbols of suffering. It then discusses the trials enacted after the Second World War and the early formation of punishment policy. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
