About the author

Irmtrud Wojak is executive director of the Fritz Bauer Forum and the Buxus Foundation. She is a historian, author and curator. Her research focuses on contemporary legal history, exile and political “cultures of memory,” and a historiography that understands and explores resistance as a struggle for human rights. As a Frieda L. Miller Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study (Harvard University), she examined the resilience of individuals who, in the face of prevailing bias and political discrimination, maintain a standpoint based on legal norms and compassion.  In 2004, I. Wojak curated the first major exhibition on the Auschwitz trial, and in 2009 she published the authoritative Fritz Bauer biography. In 2008, she completed her habilitation and received her venia legendi at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University of Hannover. Until 2005, she was deputy director at the Fritz Bauer Institute in Frankfurt. She was head of the Historical Department of the International Tracing Service (Bad Arolsen) 2007/08 and founding director of the “NS-Dokumentationszentrum” Munich 2009-2011.
