NMT: Die Nürnberger Militärtribunale zwischen Geschichte, by Alexa Stiller, Kim C. Priemel

By Alexa Stiller, Kim C. Priemel

Die Verfahren vor den Nürnberger Militärtribunalen (NMT), in denen amerikanische Ankläger die Funktionseliten des "Dritten Reiches" vor Gericht stellten, standen lange Zeit im Schatten des ersten sogenannten Hauptkriegsverbrecherprozesses. Doch der Beitrag, den die Nürnberger Militärtribunale zur historischen und juristischen Aufarbeitung der nationalsozialistischen Herrschaft sowie zur Kodifizierung des Völkerstrafrechts leisteten, struggle und ist von enormer Bedeutung.

Auf diese Weise entsteht eine Gesamtschau der Verfahren, die ihren Charakter als politisch-didaktische Prozesse betont und den historisch präzendenzlosen Versuch nachzeichnet, Recht Gerechtigkeit und Geschichte in Einklang zu bringen.
