Hannah Arendt's discussion of Adolf Eichmann in many ways opened the door for understanding the diffusion of responsibility and guilt among Nazis who may not have been obviously guilty for their participation of the Holocaust. While in reality Eichmann may not have served as the best example of this idea, understanding those who did is critical to understanding genocide.  Combining the works of several philosophers on the topic of guilt with a restructuring of the Correspondence Principle of justice allows for those less directly involved Nazis to be found guilty for their crimes.
