The Nuremberg Trial is the first and the most important one in the series of trials that took place at the Nuremberg Palace of Justice after the end of World War II. During the trial, which opened on November 20, 1945, before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) of eight judges representing four countries of the Anti-Hitler coalition, a group of former leaders of the Third Reich was charged with war crimes. In our workshop, we will explore and analyze the very first Nuremberg trial along with the subsequent ones. We will learn about the charges, the trial process, the influence of the Nuremberg trials on the international law, as well as study the criticism directed at the process and the outcome of the trials.
The first session of the workshop will be devoted to the overall information about the topic for those who are willing to get introduced to the concept of the Nuremberg trials. The second session is meant for the exploring the details – for those who took part in the 1st session or are already familiar with the topic. During the third session we will watch and discuss the movie “Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today” (1h 14 min), which is the official film on the first Nuremberg trial, directed by Stuart Schulberg and released on November 21st, 1948.
The whole workshop will be conducted in English language.
We are looking forward to exploring this important and contradictive topic together with our participants.
