The Nuremberg Trials: An International Law Perspective
Hosted By: CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center (Indiana)
The Nuremberg trials represented a watershed event in international law, human rights, and in humanity’s history. This thought-provoking lecture will describe how and why the trials came about, a general look at groups prosecuted, and the thousands of perpetrators who were left untouched by justice. While the trials were transformative in international law, justice was incomplete in many ways. This discussion will explore various profound aspects related to seeking justice for crimes against humanity, weaving in law, morality and ethics, and roles that individuals claiming bystander status actually played in the Holocaust. We will explore many profound aspects of Nuremberg, leaving participants pondering deeper questions related to the Holocaust, justice and crimes against humanity.
