Nuremburg Trials Nazi leaders chosen method of dealing with justice Cowardice—cannot face their crimes Efforts to follow decorum of trial Goering: only man who used their defense as a pulpit to justify his actions Human experimentation in the camps Resistance in war crimes charges If political leaders are called in by political leader to brainstorm ideas, what should be done to partisan resistance? Carpet bombings—designed to diminish morale, not kill hundreds of thousands used as an example of ‘how was this different?’ Is it possible for other nations to hold sovereign nations criminally responsible? Sentences offered: Those found to have engaged in mechanisms of inhumane crimes sentenced to death (Goering) Leading war aggressor-- just before his execution he committed suicide with a cyanide tablet Many followed in his path, cheating the world in its vengeance Some also played insane, claiming they were not psychologically sound Trials not closely followed by German public Many claimed they were “just following orders” Trials were a constant effort to focus solely on the heinous behavior of German Nazis so they did not become a ‘political volleyball’ Judges came from Allied countries only Impending cold war politics Cocktail parties, etc: Odd symbol of how the soviets wanted everything focused on Nazi crimes, not soviet crimes UN Charter ratified in 1945—new UN enthusiastically supported by international leaders

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
