Among those on trial at Nuremberg was Rudolph Hess, shown here with Hitler.

versely affected the Jewish
people.
Among other things, she sug-
gests that:
*Jokes about Jewish mothers
are the result of "matriphobia"
among Jewish men. ("Many Jew-
ish men blame their mothers for
their sexual insecurities and are
deeply angry at them for having
trained them to behave in such a
way as to preclude the validation
of their masculinity. They feel it
was their mothers who had made
them into what the general
society derides as wimps and
nerds.")
*Because of "their own inade-
quacies regarding physical ag-
gression," Jewish men are jealous
of black men.
*Jewish laws of family purity
are the result of "men's fear of
female sexual power."
Jewish Women: Jewish Men
contains three parts focusing on
"Patterns of Traditional Jewish
Culture," "The Impact of Assim-
ilationism on Jewish Public and
Private Life," and "The Struggle
for a Correct Reading on Reali-
ty."
Ms. Cantor also served as
editor of The Jewish Woman:
1900-1985.

T

hree just-published books
offer new insight on the
Holocaust. The Buchen-
wald Report (Westview),
translated by David Hackett, is
a report compiled by Allied in-
telligence officers sent to the
death camp upon its liberation.
Their job was to speak with in-
mates before their release and
compile information to be used
against the Nazis during war-
crimes trials.
The story of what happened to
the document is itself unusual.
For years, the few copies of the
report had vanished. Then one
last carbon copy was discovered
several years ago. In The Buchen-

wald Report it is presented in its
complete version for the first
time.
The work is in two parts. The
first half comprises the team's
findings, including how Buchen-
wald was organized and how it
ran, the names of the prisoners
and how they were treated by the
Nazis.
The second half contains the
inmates' own accounts of their
lives — the beatings, the deaths,
the SS guards — all taken before
their release.
Kindertransport (Plume) is
Diane Samuels' play recounting
the life of a 9-year-old girl, Eva,
sent to England to save her from
the death camps.
Though safe, Eva nonetheless
feels alienated. She changes her
name to Evelyn as she attempts
to become assimilated in her new
home. She marries and has a
family. Then her daughter learns
the truth of Eva's life.
Though fiction, the work is
based on the true story of 10,000
Jewish children saved on the
Kindertransport from certain
death at the hands of the Nazis.
Nuremberg: Infamy on Tri-
al (Viking Penguin), by Joseph
Persico, uses new documents to
examine the war-crimes trial of
some of the Nazi regime's top
leaders.
Using reports from the Nurem-
berg prison psychiatrist and com-
mandant, the prisoners' own
letters and journals, as well as
the judges' accounts, Mr. Persico
recreates life at the trials and be-
hind the scenes, where something
as small as a prisoner's name-
plate could become an issue.
"(Hermann) Goring noted that
white enamel name plates had
been placed over each cell. He
was annoyed that the Americans,
as usual, had neglected any ci-
vility. His plate read simply, 'H.
Goring,' no rank, no title, as if he
were a sh.opkz-.:eper. - 1J
