ADL’s Central Division invites you to join us for a free, engaging and informative webinar on Wednesday, June 17 at 2 pm MT. “The Role of the German Legal Profession in the Holocaust: Complicity in and Support for the Nazi State’s anti-Semitic Objectives” will explore how German lawyers, judges and prosecutors worked hand in glove with the Nazi establishment to convert Nazi policy objectives into the German legal code. The Nazi state’s objectives of removing all Jews from Europe could not have been undertaken without the complicity and support of the German legal profession, whose leadership convinced ordinary citizens throughout Nazi occupied lands to remain silent while genocide occurred in their midst.
