Sarah Crane holds an M.A. in European Studies from Indiana University Bloomington and a B.A. degree in history and music from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. She completed her master’s research at Free Universität Berlin, arguing that the legacies of two men - Benjamin Ferencz, Chief Prosecutor at the Nuremberg SS-EInsatzgruppen Trial, and Fritz Bauer, instigator of the Frankfurt-Auschwitz Trial - have come to represent how the responsibility to remember the crimes of the Holocaust is defined in the present.
As a Ph.D. student, Sarah is building upon her master’s work through investigating the legacy of Gideon Hausner and the Eichmann Trial. Her goal is to illustrate how international law’s response to present expressions of violence has been molded by the discussions spawned by these three men and their trials.
