The National Socialists' crimes shocked and horrified the world. During their joint exhibition visit, the group, guided by expert staff, will try to find out which violations of human rights were committed during World War II and to what extent leading National Socialists were indicted and sentenced for these crimes. In 1948, the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" was worded as the first new ethical, political and legal basis for state action. From then on, governments were not permitted to treat their citizens in an arbitrary manner.

After the exhibition visit, the group will consider to what extent the hopes of this era have been fulfilled and what importance human rights have for politics today. The 3-hour programme, in addition will reflect on the articles of the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and on the instruments of today's universal protection of human rights. The 4-hour programme will also discuss the relevance of human rights for the group members' life experiences. After the exhibition visit, the 3-hour and 4-hour programmes may also be continued on the Way of Human Rights in Nuremberg's inner city.
