Summary
A translation of 14 rabbinic responsa (halakhic rulings) issued during and immediately after the Holocaust, which "reveal the tragic situations occurring daily at this time." The issues discussed include: whether one is obliged to object to the sterilization of a mentally ill woman, whether it is permissible to stun an animal before ritual slaughter, the status of Jewish prisoners' ashes which were returned to their families (after "Kristallnacht"), whether one must repent for inadvertently suffocating a crying infant while hiding from the Nazis, the status of Jews who converted to Christianity in order to avoid deportation, whether one may ransom a family member at the expense of another's life, and whether one may volunteer to die in order to save a Torah scholar.
