Nuremberg Trials,” at a March of the Living International, Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights & Jagiellonian University symposium in Krakow, Poland. The symposium, “The Double Entendre of Nuremberg: The Nuremberg of Hate & the Nuremberg of Justice,” featured leading jurists, government ministers, scholars, lawyers and other experts from around the world.
