Justice and Judgment after the Holocaust

Join MHM Co-President Sue Hampel OAM for a lecture on The Nuremberg Trials. 

The Nuremberg Trials set an important precedent in international law, while the Eichmann trial brought Nazi atrocities to a global audience and put Holocaust survivors at centre stage.

A number of the defendants were executed, others faced prison sentences of varying lengths, and some perpetrators were acquitted.

Was justice served at Nuremberg and Jerusalem? Is justice ever possible? This lecture will explore the significance of these two trials in the light of these questions and will examine the very nature of justice and judgement after the Holocaust.
