Om boka

The Nuremberg Trials: Volume I

The Nuremberg trials were the most important criminal hearings ever held, charging Nazi leaders with war crimes and crimes against humanity under international law. 20 high-ranking Nazi officials were brought to justice in the first of these trials, including Hermann Goering, Albert Speer and Rudolf Hess, and the full horror of their actions were announced on the world stage.

Terry Burrows gives a detailed account of these trials, using shocking excerpts from the original transcripts. We hear chilling admissions from the accused as well as harrowing testimonies from victims of the Nazi regime.

These atrocities include:
* The devastating events of the Holocaust and its architects
* The 'medical experiments' in Auschwitz and Block 46 in Buchenwald
* Forced labour and economic pillaging in France, Denmark, Norway, Poland, the Netherlands and the Soviet Union.

The Nuremberg Trials not only provides insight into the Nazi regime during World War II but also the court proceedings which marked a turning point in international law.
