"Who speaks for a transnational community with little in common? Why did Germany recognize a newly formed alliance as the spokesperson for the victims and who benefitted from its operations? My book seeks to answer these questions on the basis of archival documents and a comparison with other transnational organizations set up to deal with the cataclysmic repercussions of the Second World War." - Rachel Blumenthal
