The Nuremberg Trials and the Fate of Human Rights after the Holocaust
(Educational Opportunity)

Speaker: Dr. Devin Pendas, Associate Professor of History, Boston College

The Nuremberg Trials are often seen as both the first and most important attempt to prosecute Nazi crimes, the Holocaust above all, and as one of the founding moments for the modern human rights movement. Yet the reality was more complicated. The Nuremberg Trials had relatively little to do with the Holocaust. And the vision of justice articulated by the tribunals differed significantly from what most people later came to think of as human rights. It is time to discard the myth of Nuremberg and recognize the more subtle and complex history of human rights after 1945.
