Abstract

The1914 "Christmas Truce" on the Western front of the 1st World War is described and analyzed in its development and especially in its genesis as the epitome of the idea of "truce", namely of all those "truces" which occur in human life and breaks the incessant movent toward fight or vengeance, giving rise to opportunities for thought and for hearing the voice of one's conscience. . Some quotes from Primo Levi's book "The Truce" seem to grasp this almost metaphisical meaning of "truce". Such truces are particularly needed in the parctice of law, and especially criminal law, allowing to listen to the need and the stories of victims and offenders, Restorative justice can be deemed as a way of inserting in the mechanichs of prosecution and as a kind of relenting truce in the rush to find culprits and achieve punishment as its goal.
