Twenty-four high-ranking Nazis go on trial in Nuremberg,

The Nuremberg trials were conducted by an international
tribunal
made up of representatives from the United States,
the
Soviet Union, France and Great Britain. It was the first
trial of its kind in history, and the defendants faced charges
ranging from crimes against peace, to crimes of war, to
crimes against humanity.

Lord Justice Geoffrey Lawrence, the British member, presided
over the proceedings, which lasted 10 months and consisted
of 216 court sessions.
