Website Spotlight: Nuremberg Trials


Website URL: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/nuremberg/

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

I ask the students to work through the following links:

Online Poll: Were the Trials Fair?

We Were There
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/nuremberg/sfeature/sf_interview.html

The Nuremberg Judges

Which Nazis Were on Trial?

Simultaneous Interpretation (This is great!)

Timeline
[I appreciate this particular American Experience timeline since it provides not just dates but a sentence or two explanation of each date.]
