Hey so ya we are doing the nuremburg trials in class and im Herman Goering's defense attorney so I have been doing some research on him. During th trial he said: "Of course people don't want war. But after all, it's the leader of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, fascist Dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought back to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger." (This is an actual quote from snopes.com) Hope it helps. the nazi was killed
Hermann Wilhelm Goering was one of the head officials of Hitler, as well as his designated successor. Hitler referred to Goering as "my deputy in all my offices." He was selected by Hitler to negotiate a peace treaty when it was clear they were not going to win the war. He was later found guilty for Crimes Against Humanity in the Nuremberg Trials. He was sentenced to death by hanging, but killed himself with cyanide before the sentence was carried out.
No, Goering was never President of Germany. He was however Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and Hitler's designated successor. But towards the end of the war Hitler started blaming Germany's losses on Goering and eventually had him arrested. Not long afterward he was captured by the Allies and tried for conspiracy to wage war, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity. He was scheduled to be executed after the Nuremberg trials, but he committed suicide two hours before he was to be hanged in 1946.
Nuremburg there were trials in many cities. Whereas in Nuremberg the trials were about war crimes and crimes against peace, the Franfurt trials were about the Holocaust and crimes against humanity.
The Nuremberg Trials of 1945-1946 were the war-crimes trials of leaders of Nazi Germany. They were charged with crimes against peace and crimes against humanity, most notably those connected with the genocide of the Holocaust. Twelve defendants were convicted and sentenced to death, of which 10 were hanged, and others sentenced to prison terms.
The Allies put 24 surviving Nazi leaders on trial for crimes against humanity, crimes against the peace, and war crimes.
Yes that is correct. That is why the trials at Nuremberg took place and in Japan too.
In the eyes of the Nuremberg Tribunal the most serious charge of all was unleashing World War 2 ('Crimes against peace'). Committing the Holocaust came under the charge of 'crimes against humanity'.
Some of the executed of the nazi leaders in 1946 at the Nuremberg trials were: -Hermann Goring -Alfred Rosenberg -Wilhelm Keitel -Alfred Jodl -Julius Streicher -Joachim von Ribbentrop -Hans Frank They were condemned for crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes against peace.
To try the surviving leading Nazis for war crimes, crimes against peace and against humanity.In addition, there was a series of follow-up trials at Nuremberg relating to more specialized matters, such as the Doctors' Trial which was concerned, among other things, with the T4 euthanasia program.The only alternative seriously considered by the Allies was simply to declare the accused guilty and kill them without trial.
Crimes against peace - that is. launching a war of aggression.War crimes - that is, violating international law on the conduct of war and treatment of prisoners of war.Crimes against humanity - that is, genocide and related crimes.
