Holocaust and the Law: Lessons for Today

Although seventy-five years have passed, the impact of the Holocaust continues to reverberate to this day. In this intensive all-day seminar, we will describe the Nazi legal architecture that prepared the groundwork for the Holocaust and the actors that made it happen. We will discuss how the world brought the perpetrators to justice, and how those lessons were incorporated into contemporary war crimes trials and integrated in modern litigation. Finally, we will explore the role of the bystander and address ways in which our society can properly immunize itself to help ensure that such dark historical events are never repeated.
