9781403979650: The Nuremberg Legacy: How the Nazi War Crimes Trials Changed the Course of History

Sixty years have passed since the Nuremberg trials of the major Nazi war criminals, but that event still stands as the foundation of international justice. Nuremberg not only ignited a revolution in international law but affected domestic law as well with its simple but profound priniciple that every individual accused of crime is entitled to a full and fair hearing.This book reveals how the precedents set at Nuremberg have affected human rights, race relations, medical practice, big business and even Germany's post-war development. It also examines the Nuremberg trials' influence on the modern war crimes trials of tyrants like Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein.

Review:

'Offers a compelling and original contribution to our understanding of the first international criminal tribunal in history.' - William Aceves, California Western School of Law, San Diego 'Judge Ehrenfreund's book is distinguished by a combination of elegant writing and a deep understanding of the subject. This is essential reading for anyone interested in Nuremberg.' - Henry T. King, Jr., former Nuremberg prosecutor and author of The Two Worlds of Albert Speer 'This book describes the horror of the Nazi genocide, and my life as one of the Untermenschen Hitler sought to exterminate but what is different about this work is that Judge Ehrenfreund tells what that experience means for modern times.' - Lou Dunst, Holocaust survivor, Auschwitz and Mauthausen (Ebensee) concentration camps "This readable eyewitness account -- combining fascinating anecdotes with brilliant insights -- will educate and inspire. It is as relevant today, as we confront a new form of totalitarian terrorism and can only hope that we be able to bring its perpetrators to justice under the Nuremberg principle." - Alan M. Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law Harvard Law School "The Nuremberg trials hold many lessons in justice and human rights that resonate today. From his unique vantage point as an eyewitness to the trials and as a Judge, Norbert Ehrenfreund sends out a clear warning about the direction our nation is taking but also gives us hope with this refreshing new take on the founding principles of justice as we know it." - Senator Christopher J. Dodd "Part memoir, part history lesson, and part critique of recent U.S. government policies, this important book recounts the story of the Nuremberg trials and their immense legacy in shaping human rights policies today. A timely, well-researched, and well-written study." - Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H.& Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University and author of American Judaism: A History "Pertinent, thorough overview...a tremendous case for adhering to the Nuremberg legacy of fair treatment for even the most odious offenders. Students and young adults will especially value this accessible, personable work." Kirkus Reviews
