Women of the Trials of Nuremberg
|Date||Wed, Jan 27, 5:00pm - 6:00pm|
Please join the Chicago-Kent College of Law Center on National Security and Human Rights Law for a presentation focusing on the women who took part in the Nuremberg Trials.
The trials that began at Nuremberg 75 years ago are duly famous for prosecuting Nazi leaders and thus demonstrating that perpetrators of atrocities may face international criminal punishment. The trials depended on well-known men like the Chief U.S. Prosecutor, Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson. Less well known are the many women who took part as lawyers and legal professionals, translators and interpreters, witnesses and journalists – in short, in nearly every post except judge. This presentation, to be delivered on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, will tell the stories of these women of the Nuremberg trials.
