The Nuremberg Trials
- LITERARY CRITICISM-DOCUMENTARY PROSE
The author, an eminent scholar and literary critic, was part of the group responsible for amassing evidence at the Nuremberg Trials. He participated in questioning the major Nazi criminals, Hermann Goring and Alfred Rosenberg, met political activists and writers, among them Kellerman and Gerhart Hauptmann, the 1912 Nobel Prize winner. The book is an impressive work, joining history and psychology, and an attempt to find the reasons for destructive wars, particularly the one that involved the whole world and nearly ruined the German nation.
