Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today
Wednesday, 2 May 2018, 5 – 7pm
The Philosophy Department at Trinity College Dublin is screening a documentary film about the Nuremberg Trials on Wednesday 2nd May in the Long Room Hub at 5pm. The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg (1945-6) established the ‘Nuremberg Principles’ - the foundation of all subsequent trials for crimes against peace, war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity. It led to the formation of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
The film Nuremberg: Its Lessons for Today was shown in Germany in 1948-9 as part of the denazification programme but US officials prevented its subsequent release to American theatres for political reasons.
Fiona McKay who used to work for 11 years for International Court of Human Rights will give a presentation discussing the legal and political implications of the trial.
