On November 19th, 1945, the tribunal for the Nuremberg Trials was called to order; and on November 20th, 1945, 24 of the most important Nazi war criminals went on trial for their crimes.
The last surviving prosecutor from the Nuremberg Trials, now over 100 years old, remembers them.
Eleven of the accused were sentenced to death. Ten of them were executed on 16th October, 1946. Hermann Goering cheated the gallows by taking poison the night before.
Sadly, a great many more fanatical politicians have taken over the mantle of mass murderer since the Nuremberg Trials. Their lessons have not been heeded.
