Visit of students from the University of Cape Town

 

On Saturday 22nd July 2017, the Nuremberg Academy partnered with the Nuremberg Human Rights Center (NHRC) to welcome students from the University of Cape Town on their European tour “Rebuilding Shattered Societies: Lessons on Memory, Justice and Redress from Germany and Poland”, organized by the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre. The Academy’s Ms. Farah Mahmood was present with Mr. Rainer Huhle from the NHRC to participate in thought-provoking discussions, particularly surrounding the refugee situation in Germany and also the impact of the Nuremberg Trials in the national healing process of Germany. The Academy’s “Witnessing International Crimes” was presented as a relevant topic, together with multidisciplinary research projects on “Acceptance of International Criminal Justice” and “The Deterrent Effect of International Criminal Tribunals”.
