It has been 70 years since Nazi leaders went on trial in the German city of Nuremberg for war crimes committed during the Holocaust. During World War II German military leaders robbed, murdered, imprisoned, and tortured millions of Jews. The Nuremberg trials focused on uncovering the Nazi plan of aggression. Crimes against humanity got the least attention. The trials were seen as fair, and 3 people were actually acquitted.

Listen to hear more about the Nuremberg Trials and how the ideas from these trials are applied today.
