The Nuremberg Trials were a series of military tribunals held by the Allied forces after World War II, where prominent members of Nazi Germany's leadership were tried for crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
The first and best known trial was of major war criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT). Between November 20, 1945 and October 1, 1946, twenty-two of the Third Reich's most important political, military and economic leaders were brought to justice in Courtroom 600 at the Palace of Justice. Missing were Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Joseph Goebbels – who had committed suicide.
