Fifty Years After Nuremberg: Nuremberg and the Legacy of the Survivors

25 years ago and 50 years after the Nuremberg Trials, in 1995, the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life hosted a panel with six Holocaust survivors at the Dodd Center, to where the Center had moved the same year. After greetings from then UConn President, Harry Hartley, the Center's founder, Professor Arnold Dashefsky, opens the event and introduces the panel. Among the speakers are Dr. Herbert Lederer (UConn), Bruce Stave (UConn), Harry Fiss, Ruth Klemens, Simon Konover, and Sigmund Strochlitz. The event, the 11th Academic Convocation on the Holocaust, was co-sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies, the Center for Oral History, the Center for European Studies, the Department of History, and the Department for Sociology. It was part of UConn's Year of Introspection - 50 Years after Nuremberg - Human Rights and the Rule of Law, and part of the opening dedication of the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. The video footage is 58 minutes long and can be watched here.

The same afternoon, author, survivor, and Nobel Peace Price winner Elie Wiesel provided the Nobel Laureate address for UConn's Fifty Years After Nuremberg program. Find a video of Elie Wiesel's speech here.
