Worth reading, every word

The most recent edition of the VBA Journal contains the remarks of Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, delivered to the Summer Meeting of The Virginia Bar Association in 1947, about the Nuremberg trials, in which he was a prosecutor for the United States. He concluded: "We have given the world an example of a trial and hearing instead of executing people in cold blood."

Other speeches made by Robert H. Jackson can be found here.

The Virginia Holocaust Museum in Richmond has been working on a Nuremberg trials courtroom exhibit.
