Chicago Lawyers Committee Meeting
Join the Chicago Lawyers Committee to explore the legal system in Nazi Germany and the role of law in the Holocaust through the interpretation of images from the 1930s and 1940s.
Special emphasis will be put on the role played by jurists in the persecution of targeted minorities, the loss of judicial independence, and the reign of terror imposed by the Nazi legal system during World War II. The concluding discussion will examine the lessons of the Holocaust for American jurists in the United States today.
