November 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree; Registration Required
“A WARNING FROM HISTORY? THE NUREMBERG TRIALS 75 YEARS LATER” – OPENING KEYNOTE
In the wake of the Holocaust, prosecutors at the 1945 Nuremberg Trials faced a daunting task: seeking justice for an unfathomable crime. Commemorating Nuremberg’s 75th anniversary, join us for a series of thought-provoking programs on the history and legacy of the Trials, its lessons for a world still plagued by genocide, and the challenges we still confront in seeking justice today.
For the opening keynote, join us to hear Harvard Law School 300th Anniversary University Professor and former Dean Martha Minow, regarded internationally as a leading voice for justice and champion for human rights. One of the greatest legal minds of our time, Minow will offer a compelling examination of the legacy of Nuremberg, the rule of law, and addresses why seeking justice for mass atrocities like the Holocaust requires balance between vengeance and forgiveness.
