Julius Streicher. International Military Tribunal defendant Julius Streicher, the editor of Der Stürmer, during the Nuremberg trial. In its conviction, the IMT ruled that Streicher knew of the mass killings of Europe’s Jews and that his articles in Der Stürmer calling for the “annihilation of the Jewish race” was a direct incitement to murder and thus constituted a “crime against humanity.” The Streicher verdict continues to stir legal debate about proving when hate propaganda becomes incitement to genocide. —US Holocaust Memorial Museum/National Archives and Records Administration, College Park, MD.
