Our tour took us to Zeppelin Field, where Nazi rallies were held for up to 100,000 spectators on grounds designed by Hitler's chief architect, Albert Speer. While rally footage and photographs show this space as home to large, loud, boisterous activity, Zeppelin Field is quiet for visitors today—vast and almost overwhelming in its expansive magnitude.
The Nuremberg trials 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. The court decisions marked a turning point between classical and contemporary international law.
