about

Justice at Nuremberg traces the history of the Nuremberg Doctors' Trial held in 1946-47, through the eyes of the Austrian émigré psychiatrist Leo Alexander. His investigations helped the United States to prosecute twenty German doctors and three administrators for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The legacy of Nuremberg was profound. In the Nuremberg code - a landmark in the history of modern medical ethics - the judges laid down, for the first time, international guidelines for permissible experiments on humans. One of those who helped to formulate the code was Alexander. Justice at Nuremberg provides a detailed insight into the origins of human rights in medical science and into the changing role of international law, ethics and politics.
Ulf Schmidt is a Senior Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Kent, Canterbury.
