Nuremberg: Nazi Germany on Trial
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials, a series of tribunals held after World War II to bring Nazi criminals to justice. Soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division were responsible for guarding the infamous prisoners and ensuring they did not escape justice through suicide.
This exhibit focuses on the International Military Tribunal, the twenty-four high-ranking Nazis who were tried, and the role of the 1st Infantry Division. Included are artifacts from the museum’s object and archival collections relating to the Tribunal.
Don’t forget to check out the cell door from Nuremberg prison that is on display in our First In War gallery.
