Abstract

Douglass Cassel, Notre Dame Presidential Fellow and Professor of Law, and Stefanie Fischer, a researcher at the Center for Jewish Studies at Potsdam University, will discuss the past and contemporary significance of the Nuremberg trials. Among the subjects to be addressed are the enormous influence the Nuremberg Trials had on the development of subsequent human rights protections throughout the world, and the largely overlooked participation of Jewish organizations and the Jewish press in the process. Sean O'Brien, Assistant Director of The Center for Civil and Human Rights, will moderate the conversation.
