"The Nuremberg Trials and Their Legacy" Exhibit

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
online exhibit, "The Nuremberg Trials and Their
Legacy,"features photographs, trial artifacts, and
audio transcripts (clips) from the International
Military Tribunal war crime trials held in Nuremberg,
Germany after WWII.

In addition to the exhibit, the web site invites guests
to submit their thoughts on: What is justice? What kind
of justice is possible after genocide? Is it ever too late
to seek justice? Some of the most moving responses
are from school children. One middle-school girl
writes, " It is never to late to seek justice -it is never to
late to right the wrongs, but the longer we wait the
more it takes to make them right."
