Sixty-five years ago, the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany, set to work seeking justice for the horrendous crimes committed by the Nazis during World War II. The Allies charged Hermann Göring, Martin Bormann, Rudolf Hess and 21 other members of the Nazi Party with war crimes and crimes against humanity.
