Upcoming Talks

Thursday 16th January 2020 at 8pm

Michael Biddiss Emeritus Professor of History Reading University

‘Victor’s Justice: The Nuremberg Trials 75 Years On’

Michael Biddiss was Professor of History in Reading University from 1979 to 2004, since when he has been Professor Emeritus. During the 1990s he was President of our own Historical Association, and then Joint Vice‐President of the Royal Historical Society. He has published widely on aspects of European development since the late 18th Century with particular emphasis on the history of ideas, of medical culture, and of international criminal jurisprudence. In regard to the last of these fields, his talk on ‘Victors’ Justice: The Nuremberg Trials 75 Years On’ will aim to review not only the positive achievement of this undertaking but also those major weaknesses in its planning and implementation that still have political and legal relevance today.
