2022 Monna and Otto Weinmann Annual Lecture

6:00PM CT

After World War II, the Allies prosecuted prominent Nazi leaders for war crimes at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg. But there were other local trials related to Nazi crimes. Across Europe, Jewish communities formed tribunals to pass judgment on other Jews who were accused of some form of collaboration under extreme duress during the Holocaust. This communal process helped survivors reclaim a sense of control over their own lives and reassert their dignity. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum for a discussion about who was tried and how some Jews cleared their names.

Otto Weinmann (1903–1993), born in Vienna and raised in Czechoslovakia, served in the Czechoslovak, French, and British armies; was wounded at Normandy; and received the Croix de Guerre for his valiant contributions during the war. Monna Steinbach and Otto Weinmann married in London in 1941 and immigrated to the United States in 1948.
