The Inequality of Harm

The Inequality of Harm

Unpunished Allied Atrocities, the Nuremberg Fallacy, and Why Global Criminal Justice Remains a Mirage

(p.251) 12 The Inequality of Harm

Steven W. Becker

Oxford University Press

This chapter is devoted to Allied hypocrisy and the devastating consequences that flow from the attempt to conceal Allied wartime atrocities. It provides a summary of some of the principal Allied wartime atrocities that have been downplayed, white-washed, or otherwise outright suppressed, and for which justice has been denied to the victims, either because the perpetrators have never been criminally prosecuted or because the victims have been precluded from obtaining any relief. These include the area bombing of German and Japanese cities, the Katyń Forest massacre, ethnic cleansing of Germans from Eastern Europe, and Allied death camps.

Keywords:   Nuremberg Trial, war crimes, Allied crimes, Axis powers, wartime atrocities, World War II, bombing, Katyń Forest massacre, ethnic cleansing, death camps
