Nürnberg Trials

Yesterday we visited the Nürnberg Courthouse where the Nürnberg War Crimes Tribunal was held. High ranking Nazi officers, politicians, and doctors were tried and convicted of crimes against humanity (with the exception of 3.) We toured the facility, which is currently running an exhibition of the courthouse’s history and the Nazi war criminals. It is interesting to get a German’s perspective on the history of Nazi Germany. Our tour guide (a German historian) explained that Germany is trying to re-open the Nazi facilities to show the world that they have not forgotten. Check out the pictures and link below to see where some of the most evil war criminals were tried almost 70 years ago.
