The Nuremberg Trials
The famous Nuremberg Trials were a series of military tribunals held by the Allied forces of WWII for the prosecution of major members of the leadership of Nazi Germany. "The first and best known of these trials was the Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT), which tried 24 of the most important captured leaders of Nazi Germany, though several key architects of the war (such as Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Joseph Goebbels) had committed suicide before the trials began."**
