This chapter reviews the book Jewish Honor Courts: Revenge, Retribution, and Reconciliation in Europe and Israel after the Holocaust (2015), edited by Laura Jockusch and Gabriel N. Finder. Jewish Honor Courts is a collection of essays that examines Jewish honor courts within the wider context of retribution and punishment of collaborators with the enemy across postwar Europe. Established by Jewish communities in various European locales, Jewish honor courts were intended to try and sentence Jewish collaborators with the Nazis in a court of their Jewish peers. The book also covers the Israeli trials, known as “kapo trials,” and describes the cooperation between Jews and state prosecutors in bringing Jewish collaborators before the bar of justice. The trials of three individuals are discussed: Stella Goldschlag, Alfred Merbaum, and Hirsch Barenblat.

Keywords:   Laura Jockusch, Gabriel N. Finder, Jewish Honor Courts, retribution, punishment, Jewish collaborators, Nazis, kapo trials, Jews, Stella Goldschlag, Alfred Merbaum, Hirsch Barenblat
