Dan Plesch will present Human Rights after Hitler at a US book launch hosted by the Centre for International Policy and Georgetown University Press on Wednesday April 19th, 6pm-8pm, at Mott House, Washington DC.
This book reveals thousands of forgotten US and Allied war crimes prosecutions against Hitler and other Axis war criminals based on a popular movement for justice that stretched from Poland to the Pacific. The cases described within – described in archives that have not been opened for over half a century – provide a great foundation for twenty-first-century human rights, and provide a valuable complement to the achievements of the Nuremberg trials and postwar conventions. This history also brings long overdue credit to the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC), which operated during and after World War II.
