70th anniversary of the start of the Nuremberg Trials

November 20, 2015, marked the 70th anniversary of the start of the trials of the leading representatives of the National Socialist regime before the International Military Tribunal. On the occasion of that anniversary, the Memorium Nuremberg Trials invited some of the last surviving witnesses of the trials to attend the ceremonies. At Room 600, Dr. Yves Beigbeder, former Assistant to the French judge Henri Donnedieu de Vabres; Moritz Fuchs, former bodyguard of American Chief Prosecutor Robert H. Jackson; and Dr. George Sakheim, a former interpreter, told about their memories of the 1945–46 trial. The event was moderated by Prof. John Q. Barrett, Professor of Constitutional Law and Legal History at St. John's School of Law in New York City, and biographer of Robert H. Jackson. Welcoming remarks were delivered by Dr. Ulrich Maly, Mayor of the City of Nuremberg, and Manfred Schwerdtner, Vice-President of the Nuremberg Higher Regional Court.
