Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy


On display now — 10/02/2021

Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy focuses on two sets of trials that have become known as the Nuremberg Trials: the International Military Tribunal, (November 20, 1945 – October 1, 1946) for the major Nazi war criminals; and the twelve subsequent trials (December 9, 1946 – April 13, 1949) for those criminals not tried at IMT.

From June 26, 1945 through August 8, 1945, representatives of four victorious powers (the United States, Great Britain, France and the Soviet Union) deliberated during a conference at Church House in London on the procedures for holding the IMT. After much negotiation, the signatories issued the London Agreement and the Charter, which laid the foundation for the International Military Tribunal.
