Where did War Criminals Go?

Join us as Kris Clancy and Chris Harris from the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand examine certain war criminals, from Nazis to the modern day, who were able to escape prosecution and the role New Zealand played in bringing them to justice.

After the Second World War, the world was shocked at the atrocities committed by the Nazis and the collaborators. Through the Nuremberg Trials, new standards in international law were established to prevent future genocides, but not all the perpetrators were caught. What happened to them? What challenges does this create in bringing other perpetrators of genocide to justice? Where was New Zealand placed among this?

Through looking at the immediate effects of the Nuremberg Trials and those Nazis that evaded prosecution, Kris Clancy and Chris Harris from the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand will examine certain war criminals, from Nazis to modern day, who were able to escape prosecution and the role in which New Zealand played in bringing them to justice.
