    One thought on “Justice at Nuremberg”

    1. The impression this book might make on its readers depends very heavily on what they know about the history of Germany from the end of World War I to the end of World War II, the rise and fall of the Third Reich, Nazism, and the Holocaust and other atrocities committed at the time, and the evolving nature of international law, particularly in regard to war crimes.Published in 1983, almost forty years after the Nuremberg trials took place, the book is an attempt to come to grips with a complex at [...]

    2. Since 1969-1971, when I served in Uncle Sam's army in Germany only 25 years after WW2, I have read perhaps a dozen books on German history, looking for insight into how the Germans could have done what they did. "Justice at Nuremberg" lays out the undeniable horrors in the very words (correspondence, journals) of those who committed them. Even after all those other books, this one practically made my hair stand on end. The cold detachment of the Nazis, their utter brutality . . . just leaves me [...]

    3. Our family papers show keen interest in the evils and evildoers of World War II, and not just because my cousin Herb Gawronski was a busy judge in Allied-occupied Germany. Conot's courtroom drama certainly fades alongside the breathtaking scale of war crimes: Germans on the home front who had not recognized the Final Solution also failed to ask about emaciated foreigners who replaced their conscripted co-workers, or healthy elders at the old-age home suddenly pronounced dead from lingering illne [...]

    4. This was a sort of dissapointment because I expected something else. About three quarters of this book describes the crimes that the accused performed and not so much on the trial itself. Unfortunately, this was what I was looking for and therefore after 107 pages, I decided to let this one go.

    5. This book was extremely well researched and documented. The author's writing style made also made it an easy read. I would recommend it. However, be aware that although the title is 'Justice at Nuremberg', I estimate that 75% of the book focuses on and describes in some detail the horrible crimes of the Nazi criminals, and not as much on the trial itself. Yes, a portion of the book does provide descriptions of the judges, lawyers, their speeches, legal issues, prisoner life in prison during the [...]

    6. I read this immediately after I met my first holocaust denier. Whom I can never understand because the Nazis admitted it. And the HD nuts deny that they did, yet it's throughout this soi-disant "first comprehensive dramatic account of the trial of the Nazi leaders". Speer is the best example. Speer was described by a friend as "Hitler's unrequited love". Odsbodlikins!

    7. Good overview of the trial, covering the political decisions in forming the tribunal, and the key events of both the prosecution and defense. Could have included a bit more on the life of the key players outside of the courtroom.

    8. The work offers a comprehensive overview of perhaps the most famous legal proceedings of the 20th century, the post-World War II trial by the victorious Allied nations of top Nazis such as Hermann Goering, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and others. Journalist Robert Conot (1929-2011), whose parents died in the Holocaust, manages to combine an enormous amount of material on the trial's original conception and organization, its proceedings, and all the personalities involved--the 24 defendants, the judge [...]

    9. I like history books that start from the beginning and go to the end. Well, this book they did it in each chapter. I was too thrilled about the format. And the trial didn't start until you were well into the book.

    10. Fact filled and a relatively easy read. Helps to have pre-war Nazi History foundation before reading as some of the details of the trials are based Pre-War.

    11. Enjoyed it very much. Loved heaing about what when on behind the scenes regarding the trials of some of the most evil men in history.
