The Nuremberg Trials were held in the efforts to bring the high-ranked officers, who brutalized the Jews, to justice. According to an article found on History.com, there were no previous guidelines established to abide by in terms of the international trial of war criminals, prior to the holocaust (“Nuremberg Trials”). Moreover, the Holocaust involved a group of four powers rather than a single nation. France, Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States were all a part of the Holocaust. In order to establish the rightful laws and procedures that would be followed to carry out the Nuremberg Trials, the London Charter of the International Military Tribunal was written.
Imagine the Holocaust is over and you’re one of the survivors. You walk into a court because you were asked to be a witness. You look up and look at two people. One being the SS commander, Rudolf Hess and the other one being the oath taker. In Germany, before the German people served as soldiers, they were compelled to take an oath, saying that they are loyal to Adolf Hitler.
Is it not perplexing to think about what the Holocaust was like? Elie Wiesel knows from first hand experience. He survived in a concentration camp and was freed by American troops after about a year. Wiesel recounted his experiences in his memoir Night. Students should continue to read Night because the anecdote shows what the Holocaust was like, it shows many of the historical events of World War II as they relate to the concentration camps and many important aspects of Jewish culture.
The Holocaust; probably one of the most brutal and horrifying genocides in the history of politics. It was the dark secret of Germany during World War II, As a result, the defeat of the Nazi’s sparked a huge newcomming, and with it, the formation of the United Nations. But that is not the main concern here. The events and documents that we have found about the Holocaust still horrify us today. Documentations such as the book Night by Elie Wiesel and the story of the White Rose show us how brutaly a person can treat one another, and the exents powerful people can go to in order to hold their power.
Lastly, the Nuremberg trials was one of the biggest events to occur toward Albert Speer. It is because of his work with the Nazi Party and his contribution to the outcome of war, was he being held accountable for his actions. However, through devious remarks and claims that he was unaware of such actions being taken place under his authority, he was sentenced to a lighter penalty than what his fellow collages. Speer was held accountable for four crimes; including the common plan or conspiracy to accomplish… a war aggression, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity. However, out of the four crimes, ‘war crimes’ and ‘crimes against humanity’ were the two that would have been the biggest concern for Speer.
The prosecution has indicated that my client was tied to the mass murders and killings of jews while under his watch. But there is a legitimate explanation to prove that he is not. People of the jury, the defense will call two witnesses to the stand to prove my client innocence, the first witness is my client is self albert speer and fritz sauckel. Albert speer was an architect that joined the nazi government with excitement and later moved to a higher rank in the nazi goverment. Fritz sauckel was a close friend to speer but also was a german nazi politician.
The Trials That Changed History “The Nuremberg Trial of German war criminals was tactically based on recognition of the principle: criminal actions cannot be excused if committed on government orders; conscience supersedes the authority of the law of the state. -Albert Einstein”. During World War II, many Nazis committed horrible crimes, including murder and human experiments. While the war was going on, they were not punished, and were not even recognized for their crimes. However, The Nuremberg Trials in Germany, punished many Nazis for their crimes, and proved that evil will be punished.
A district attorney named Gil Garcetti wanted to file the charges in downtown Los Angeles, instead of Santa Monica, where the murder occurred. Many people did not like this idea because the jury was made mostly of Latinos, African Americans, and Asian Americans; which would in turn help O.J., an African American himself. A Santa Monica jury would have been more of a caucasian based jury that might not have liked O.J(Linder). The prosecution also wanted to get a lifetime sentence in prison, rather than the death penalty for Simpson, considering this would be easier to do. At the beginning of the second arraignment on July 22, Simpson was asked how he pleaded to the two murders, and he said “Absolutely, one hundred percent, not guilty.” By saying this, O.J.
Eventually down the road, Wilbert has lectured at universities, seminars, national and international conferences, and at meetings of organizations for the reform of the criminal justice system and against the death penalty. He also has been a consultant to both federal and state capital defense teams on dozens of cases around the country. Lastly, he also become an author writing about the American criminal justice system and the prison system. In the final analysis, from Wilbert Rideau becoming a strong positive representative to the lack of empathy that Vincent Simmons received, even though his case seemed a bit open and shut, to Eugene ‘Bishop’ Tannehill making a full turn around becoming a preacher to his once fellow inmates. This film showed that even if you lose your tether to society, you can also develop a new one if you are able to accept what you have
