Victors’ Justice: The Nuremberg Trial and Its Lasting Legacy

Loading Events

A talk by Prof Michael Biddiss in which he discusses the dilemmas faced by the victors at the

end of the Second World War as they sought to reach inter-Allied consensus about the

prosecution and punishment of the defeated Nazi leadership; of the Proceedings

themselves and the positive achievements as well as highlighting the weaknesses of

planning and implementation that were to limit the effectiveness of the longer term aims

which Nuremberg was intended to fulfil. The talk will review the ways in which the Trial’s

legacy has remained most relevant to global concerns and ‘crimes against humanity’

during the decades since 1945 and the formation of a permanent international Criminal

Court (since 2002) and the recent debate over Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.


Tickets may be purchased on the door (cash please as no card reader).
