    Thumbnail: The Nuremberg trials (German: Nürnberger Prozesse) were a series of military tribunals held after World War II by the Allied forces under international law and the laws of war. The trials were most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, judicial, and economic leadership of Nazi Germany, who planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in the Holocaust and other war crimes. Defendants in their dock; Goering, Hess, von Ribbentrop, and Keitel in front row, circa 1945-1946. (Public Domain)
