In German Justice, Max Hardenberg, a recently retired German judge, revisits Russia in 1990 to trace back the way he had gone as a young soldier in Hitler's army. In 1944 he had witnessed crimes committed by the SS and now, finding Natasha, one of the victims of these crimes, he realises that, still today, there are many open chapters that noone has dealt with - the people who had committed those crimes are still alive. German Justice is a book in which Max decides to follow his conscience and close these chapters but it is also a love story and a philosophical discussion about justice during times of war and times of peace.
