Genocide on Trial: War Crimes Trials and the Formation of Holocaust History and Memory
These trials brought into public knowledge and committed into incontestable history the horrors of the Holocaust, the Nazi conspiracy of aggressive war, and the atrocities committed against soldiers and civilians during World War II.
The Nuremberg Trials resulted in the conviction of Nazis with sentencing varying from prison terms to death by hanging.

Nuremberg War Crimes Trials
The second is more complex. It encompasses the didactic aims of illustrating to the conquered peoples the benefits of due legal process, whilst simultaneously creating a historical record for the edification of victors, vanquished, and posterity alike.
That second function is the concern of this book. By opting for legal action, the Allied nations succeeded in establishing a record of Nazi criminality and aggression. Unwittingly, however, in the conduct of the trials they also laid bare much about their own attitudes to what had transpired in Europe. There is an important connection between these two areas, and one which has not been brought out in the historiography of either the trials or Nazi atrocity; that connection concerns how the practices of those who conducted the trial affected the portrayal of the acts of the tried through the medium of the courtroom.

The trials were not disinterested conduits of that which they were instituted to consider. At the most basic level, considerations such as the rules of courtroom procedure, the role of judicial precedent, and the difference between legal and historical evidence meant that trials had the potential to re-shape their subject matter. Overtly political influences were another matter again, and must be considered in relation to each polity that played a part in the trials.
