Commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials

Seventy years ago in 1945, the International Military Tribunal (IMT) at Nuremberg commenced to bring leading German officials who were charged with crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity to justice.  Nuremberg taught us to re-conceptualize the notion of war and its worst consequences, as well as to reframe our response to it.  This work, initiated following the devastation of the Second World War, is ongoing and unfortunately all too unfinished. Many organizations like the Harris Institute are dedicated to the betterment of the global society in the spirit of the Nuremberg principles. In particular, the Harris Institute's namesake, Nuremberg prosecutor Whitney R. Harris, and the Crimes Against Humanity Initiative (CAHI) links the Harris Institute closely to the Nuremberg legacy. 

This webpage highlights events, publications, and other efforts initiated by that the Harris Institute and its partner organizations during this anniversary year to both honor the Nuremberg trial 70 years later and contribute to the eventual fulfillment of the Nuremberg principles.
