'Hitler's Courts: The Betrayal of the Rule of Law in Nazi Germany' - a documentary film
Last night, Emmy award-nominated filmmaker Joshua M. Greene delivered the 6th Annual Holocaust Memorial Lecture, presenting his documentary Hitler's Courts: The Betrayal of the Rule of Law in Nazi Germany.
Greene, who had earlier published books and directed documentaries on Justice at Dachau and Witness: Voices of the Holocaust, gave the North American premiere of this new documentary detailing the fate of Jewish lawyers in Germany and the process whereby the Nazi regime acquired control of the German judiciary.
Over one hundred people attended the screening and discussion. The event was organized by the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism and the Montreal Holocaust Education Series.
