Abstract

In 1945-1946, the International Military Tribunal adjudicated at Nuremberg in Allied-occupied former Germany the criminality of Nazi leaders and organizations. More than sixty years later, most of the people who were important parts of that monumental and consequential international legal project have sadly departed.

This lecture, delivered in August 2010, remembers five significant United States “Nurembergers” who died during 2009-2010: family insider Nancy R. Jackson, chief interpreter Richard W. Sonnenfeldt, and prosecuting attorneys Roger W. Barrett, Whitney R. Harris, and Benjamin Kaplan.

Keywords: International Military Tribunal, IMT, Nuremberg, Nazi war criminals, Nancy R. Jackson, Richard W. Sonnenfeldt, Roger W. Barrett, Whitney R. Harris, Benjamin Kaplan
