Today in History: The Nuremberg Trial Begins

By Toby Friedman


After WWII, twenty-four major war criminals were brought to trial. This famous court case, known as the Nuremberg Trials, was not like any other. The prosecution of those twenty-four ruthless Nazis ym’’s brought peace to many who have suffered under their cruel reign. After years of overlooked atrocities justice was finally being served. Robert Ley, One of the twenty-four Nazis, committed suicide before the trial began. Out of the remaining twenty-three defendants, twelve were sentenced to death; seven were given prison sentences, and four were acquitted.
