Exhibit marks 65th anniversary of Nazi trial

NUREMBERG, Germany — A new exhibit is opening to mark the 65th anniversary of the Nuremberg war crimes trials — a landmark process that brought top Nazis to justice, and established precedents in war crimes prosecutions.
The exhibit is opening Sunday, the day after the anniversary of the opening of the trial — Nov. 20, 1945 — in the historic Palace of Justice building where it was held. It gives visitors the opportunity to see original video and hear audio recordings from the trial, and peer inside the courtroom where men like Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess and Julius Streicher defended their crimes.The Nuremberg proceedings broke new ground in holding government leaders individually responsible for their aggression and slaughter of millions of innocents.
