Anniversary of Nuremberg Trials; Nations Urged to Ratify Genocide Pact

Download PDF for this date

The tenth anniversary of the Nuremberg Trial should serve as a reminder to all member states of the United Nations of their obligation to ratify the Genocide Convention, Dr. Maurice L. Perlzweig, director of the World Jewish Congress’ International Affairs Department, declared-on today’s anniversary of the trial.

Recalling that the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg pronounced judgment on the major Nazi criminals a decade ago today, Dr. Perlzweig hailed the trial as “the first occasion in human history when the rule of law was applied and enforced in a fair and open trial of crimes committed by a sovereign state and its authorized representatives.”
