The Numerberg Trials Were Unfair After World War II the victorious Allies decided to hold a trial for the defeated Nazis These trials lasted from November 20 1945 till October 1 1946 Although the victors claimed that they would give the accused a fair trial upon closer inspection we can see that in reality these trials were biased and were a victors justice After the war each of the Allies leaders had their own idea for how they should deal with the Nazis Stalin suggested that they should have trials but here everyone is guilty and afterwards is shot What then would be the point of having a trial then It would just appear as a play before they would perform their actual intentions He may have suggested this also so that he could say that they were fair because they gave them a trial-but what sort of trial Churchill even said that they should just be lined up and shot If the leaders of the Allies were saying such things how could we even expect the trials to be unbiased then Each allied country had its own persecutors All the judges at the trials came from the victorious countries as well Most of the judges were American or Russian During the trials the Americans put American justice over International Justice It was wrong and unfair however to do such a thing because those who were guilty didnt even come from the United States Since the trials were supposed to be international in scope they shouldnt be following the justice of one country but rather international justice Although the Americans were applying American justice to the trials they didnt even follow their constitution while doing so The US constitution states that laws cannot be made post-facto but in Nuremberg they created these laws for example crimes against humanity and waging aggressive war after the Germans had committed them It is wrong however
