Amann on Women at Nuremberg

Diane Marie Amann, University of California, Davis School of Law, has posted Portraits of Women at Nuremberg. Here is the abstract:
This essay reflects ongoing research that investigates women who played roles in war crimes trials at Nuremberg, Germany, and situates those women within the context of social developments during the post-World War II. Based on an autumn 2009 presentation at the Third International Humanitarian Law Dialogs, the essay builds upon the “Women at Nuremberg” series posted [here]. The essay mentions women who were defendants, journalists, or witnesses; however, it focuses on some of the women, mostly Americans, who served as prosecutors at Nuremberg [such as Cecelia Goetz, left].
