Kansas City (MO)…On Tuesday, November 10 at 6:30 p.m., the National Archives at Kansas City will host Dr. Mark Hull for a lecture titled Justice After Nuremberg. A free light reception will precede the lecture at 6:00 p.m.

Dr. Hull focuses on the subsequent Nuremberg Military Tribunals the twelve cases following the International Military Tribunal: proceedings against defendants with a common criminal thread – high commanders, judges, industrialists, doctors, and others. His talk highlights the Einsatzgruppen case (1947) which was then and remains still the largest murder trial in history, with twenty-four defendants and over a million victims. The importance of the trial extends beyond conviction and punishment, and it is as relevant today as it was seventy years ago, perhaps even more so.

Program presented in partnership with the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, UMKC Truman Center, Truman Presidential Library, and the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education.

Reservations are requested for this free program by calling 816-268-8010 or emailing Requests for ADA accommodations must be submitted five business days prior to events.
