Nuremberg Trials

The Nuremberg Trials were held in order to punish Nazis for the crimes that were committed during the Holocaust and World War II. Victims of these horrible occurrences deserved justice. These trials were somewhat effective. Not all Nazi leaders were found guilty. For example, Adolf Hitler committed suicide before he could be tried and punished.:

This day in history comes a couple of days late. On November 20, 1945 the Nuremberg Trials started in Germany to punish the Nazis who had caused the death of so many. There were people who were exterminated by the Nazis for: Jewish, Romani, Poles, Homosexuality, Jehovah Witnesse, etc. When the Nuremberg Trials started the tragedy of the Holocaust was exposed to the world about what these men had done. The Nuremberg Trials will go down in history as a reminder to what had happened during the mass extermination in the concentration camps. Many of the men who went to trial were sentenced to death or prison for crimes against humanity and war crimes. Seventy years ago these trials happened that exposed everything wrong that the Nazi regime had caused.
