Virtual Book Launch for Soviet Judgment at Nuremburg: A New History of the International Military Tribunal

Professor Francine Hirsch
in conversation with Professor Tony Michels

Monday, October 12, 2020
7:00-8:00 PM
Virtual lecture

Organized in the immediate aftermath of World War Two by the victorious Allies, the Nuremberg Trials were intended to hold the Nazis to account for their crimes — and to restore a sense of justice to a world devastated by violence. As Francine Hirsch reveals in the immersive, gripping, and ground-breaking Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg, a major piece of the Nuremberg story has routinely been omitted from standard accounts: the part the Soviet Union played in making the trials happen in the first place.

Francine Hirsch is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she teaches courses on Soviet and Modern European history and on the history of human rights.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for German and European Studies, A Room of One’s Own Bookstore, UW-Madison History Department, the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, and the Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia.
