Duration   1h

The German Nazi State's objective of removing all Jews from Europe generally -- and all of the land the Nazi State controlled more broadly -- could not have been undertaken without the complicity and support of the German legal profession.

Practicing lawyers, prosecutors, and judges worked hand-in-glove with the Nazi leadership to convert Nazi policy objectives into the German legal code.

This presentation will focus on the role played by the German legal profession in aiding and assisting the Nazis' genocidal efforts against the Jewish population.
