Germany has opened a new exhibit commemorating the landmark Nuremberg war crimes trials — 65 years after more than 20 senior Nazis were put in the dock.

The exhibit is located in the Palace of Justice building where the trial started Nov. 20, 1945. Visitors can view original video and hear audio recordings; they can peer inside the courtroom where Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess, Julius Streicher and others defended their crimes.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said Sunday that "the Nuremberg trials were the answer to the perversion of the law in Nazi Germany."

The judges at Nuremberg represented the victorious Allies — the U.S. the Soviet Union, Britain and France.

Westerwelle was joined Sunday by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
