20.01.2011 - "Nuremberg Trial - 65 years on" - Keynote speech by Alexander Sternik

Dear Guests, Thank you for coming to our Embassy today. These days the Nuremberg Trial, held 65 years ago, has drawn attention all around the world. In Nuremberg itself, a comprehensive museum of the trial opened in late November. However, no similar events seem to be planned in London. So we hope to somehow fill the gap. The British capital is indeed a very remarkable place in this sense, as it was in London where the Charter of the International War Crimes Tribunal was adopted in 1945. Furthermore, this building is an appropriate place for talking about Nuremberg, as since 1940 till 1948 it housed an MI-19 interrogation centre for German prisoners of war. One of them, according to reports, was Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s party deputy tried at Nuremberg. The Embassy moved in only several decades later. For your convenience we have compiled press reports about this building, called the London Cage during the war. Obviously the building has undergone renovation several times and it doesn’t look the way it was in 1940’s, so you will need imagination to feel the atmosphere.
