Abstract. In this paper we show that certain properties of thermodynamic fluctuations
which were derived long ago by Onsager and Onsager-Machlup as a consequence
of microscopic reversibility , can actually hold also if the dynamics deviates
from reversibility. This result is based on the explicit construction of
models which can be analysed rigorously. What happens is that small scale
irreversibilities are washed out at the macroscopic level.
