Designed for K–12 educators, this virtual teacher workshop examines how the Nuremberg Trials redefined justice in the postwar world and how to best teach about this event in your classroom. From November 20, 1945, to October 1, 1946, 22 Nazi leaders were put on trial in front of the International Military Tribunal consisting of judges from four of the Allied powers—Britain, the Soviet Union, France, and the United States. The Nuremberg Trials changed the nature of international law and the enforcement of justice in the postwar world. During this virtual workshop, educators will hear from a National WWII Museum historian about the origins of the Nuremberg Trials and their long-term impact on the world. Then, you will hear from Museum educators about effective strategies and resources to teach about the aftermath of World War II in your classroom.
Educators who participate in this virtual workshop will receive all resources highlighted as well as a certificate confirming they participated in 90 minutes of professional development with The National WWII Museum.
