Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy

Temple Sinai Jewish History Center, a part of the Sumter County Museum, presents Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy, a exhibition from The Florida Holocaust Museum. The exhibit focuses on two sets of trials that have become known as the Nuremberg Trials: the International Military Tribunal, (Nov. 20, 1945 – Oct. 1, 1946) for the major Nazi war criminals; and the twelve subsequent trials (Dec. 9, 1946 – Apr. 13, 1949) for those criminals not tried at IMT. From June 26, 1945 through Aug. 8, 1945, representatives of four victorious powers (the U.S., Great Britain, France and the Soviet Union) deliberated during a conference at Church House in London on the procedures for holding the IMT. After much negotiation, the signatories issued the London Agreement and the Charter, which laid the foundation for the International Military Tribunal.
