This seminar explores the legal system in Nazi Germany and the role of law in the Holocaust through the interpretation of images from the 1930s and 1940s with special emphasis on the role played by law and jurists in the persecution of targeted minorities, the loss of judicial independence and in the reign of terror imposed by the Nazi legal system during World War II.
The concluding discussion examines the lessons of the Holocaust for American jurists in the United States today.
