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
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.
