When the Allies first began to debate the post-war treatment of Nazis, the British government favored shooting Axis leaders as outlaws, without any attempt to convict individuals of specific crimes. During the war, the British foreign secretary, Anthony Eden, had said, "the guilt of such individuals is so black that they fall outside ... any judicial process."
The Soviet and American governments agreed that the Nazis had committed unforgivable crimes, but felt that the accused should be convicted in a public trial.
At Nuremberg, this public trial took place, but with Allied crimes barred from prosecution and defendants charged with crimes that were only defined after the fact, the trials at Nuremberg were criticized by some as "victor's justice."
Under these circumstances, do you think the trial process at Nuremberg was fair?
