On December 11, 1961 Eichmann was convicted of crimes against the Jewish people, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and membership in a criminal organization. He was sentenced to death on December 15.1961. Later on in June 1962, Eichmann was exicuted by hanging and he was tunre to ashes and spread out into the sea. After reading about the Eichmann trial, I learned that his trial in Israel was the only trial in Israel history to have ended with the death sentence. In adfition, I learned that Eichmann had admitted he was guilty of the crimes he was put to trial for. He stated thta he was guilty of the deportation of millions of Jews to their deaths, but did not feel guilty of the consequences. The Nuremberg Trials was the trial of the top surviving German leaders. The trial was held in Nurmenberg Germany before an international military tribute. I learned that the judges were all from the allied powers, Great Britain, France, Soviet Union, and the United States. There were one hundred adn ninety nine top German soldiers tried throughout the Nurmenberg trials. Out of the one hundred and ninety nine, thirty seven were sentenced to death and one hundred and sixty one were convicted for the crimes they commited. I believe that more justice could have been seved because there were pleanty of German Nazi soldiers that feld to other countries including the United States. The soldiers that fled escaped their consequences, and I feel that they should have been tracked down and hunted just like they had done to the inncoent Jewish community in Europe. Finally, the German Nazi soldiers that were captured and put to trial used the excuse that they were only following orders. Prior to this module, I learned that they were given the opportunity to not participate in the mass shootings and killing of the European Jewish community. Therefore, the excuse of “just following orders” is invalid.
The crimes that the Nazis committed were inhumane and based of anti-semitic beliefs. There were mutiple attempts for the Nazis to be tried for these crimes. The Eichmann trials took place in Jerusalem in front of the Israeli police. This was a very high populated Jewish area. This was the first time that the Holocaust was exposed for what it truly was in large detail. Journalists from all around the world came to Jerusalem to cover this trial. Eichmann was found guilty and indicted. The Nuremburg trials uncovered the German authority that upheld the Nazi fascism. Of the 177 respondents, 24 were condemned to death, 20 to long lasting detainment, and 98 other jail sentences. 25 respondents were seen not as blameworthy. A large number of the detainees were delivered right off the bat during the 1950s because of absolutions. I believe justice was served as a result of these trials and the Nazis received a fair amount of punishment.
