Date Wed, Nov 18, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Duration   1h

Almost everyone has heard of the Nuremberg Trial of major Nazi leaders after World War II, but few people realize that this was only one among tens of thousands of trials conducted not just in every major country in Europe, but around the globe, from Canada to Australia, Israel to the United States. These trials continue to the present day, with cases still pending in German courts. This decades-long, global effort to bring Nazi perpetrators to justice represents the largest and most sustained effort to prosecute mass atrocities and genocide in the history of the world. Outlining this global struggle for justice, Devin Pendas will explain how these trials worked and what impact they had on the postwar world.

This program is part of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum's Permanent Exhibition Highlight Series. Space is limited! Please register for one ticket per device used.
