Dec. 6, 2017 | Holocaust Trials & The Memory of Judgement


Wednesday, December 6, 2017

7:00 -8:15pm

Is it possible for the law to do justice to the unprecedented and extraordinary crimes of the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity?  Can trials be organized to serve extralegal ends (educating the public, shaping collective memory, and protecting historical truth) also maintain their legal integrity?

Professor Lawrence Douglas (James J. Grosfeld Professor of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought at Amherst College) will discuss the legacy of the trials of Adolf Eichmann and other Nazi criminals.

This talk will be introduced and moderated by Professor Ethan H. Leib, John D. Calamari Distinguished Professor of Law, Fordham University.
