Project Summary

The project examines the role of Soviet legal experts in the Nuremberg Trials of 1945-46 and in the subsequent development of an international discourse on human rights. It also investigates the role of Nuremberg in the Soviet imagination- focusing on the Soviet writers, artists and the like who attended the trials and brought them to the Soviet population back home.
