Nuremberg and Genocide

leave a comment »

The recent passing of VE day some 61 years ago, made me reflect in the Nuremberg trials.

The Nuremberg trials of 1945 brought home to a wider audience the vile crimes of the Nazi regime.

The trials are documented at Avalon, Nizkor Project and Web Genocide Documentation Centre Home Page

Some of the legal issues are discussed here and this provides an overall summary.

The glossary provides links to crimes of Nazi Germany.
