Hilary Earl speaks on the Nuremburg process, March 26, 3:30 pm, A 148

From Dr. James Murton:

The History Department Seminar Series finishes its season with our own Dr. Hilary Earl, speaking on “Crime and Punishment: The Nuremberg SS-Einsatzgruppen Trial in Historical Perspective.” She will speak on Wed. March 26, 3:30 pm in room A148.

Hilary's presentation is based on her forthcoming book, which examines the trial of twenty-four SS- Einsatzgruppen leaders (the Nazi killing units deployed in the occupied Soviet Union in the summer of 1941) by the United States government after World War II. Ultimately, the book is an examination of the strengths and weaknesses of the Nuremberg legal system to contend with the crime of genocide in the aftermath of the war.

Refreshments will be served.
