Chapter Summary

The role and perception of the Nuremberg Trial 'on the ground' and locally changed with the re-configuration of local and national, as well as international justice. Given the importance presently assigned to local support for international justice, the author traces the perceptions and assessment of the Nuremberg Trial by the German public (West Germany) through three stages covering a period of about 30 years. The first stage is the immediate post-war period during and after the Nuremberg Trial. The Nuremberg Trial was a landmark both for the international community as well as for German society. Before drawing some lessons from the Nuremberg Trial and the European 'success story' for contemporary post-conflict situations, the author briefly reminds herself of the unique situation in which the Nuremberg Trial took place.
