The history beckons a re-visit as a new museum commemorating the Nuremberg Trials opens in the Germany’s Bavarian city to mark the 65th anniversary of the trials that witnessed prosecution of many Nazi leaders during the World War II between November 20, 1945 and October 1, 1946.
The exhibit is open to public and showcases the courtrooms that explore Nuremberg Trials. The museum is located in the same building where 20 Nazi leaders were executed after being held responsible for the war, said media reports.
Visitors can see original documents from the trials that include videos, photos, audio recordings and journalists’ notes.
Prisoners’ docks where prominent Nazi leaders like Hermann Goering among others were seated for trial are also on display. The courtroom 600, where the actual trials happened is a major attraction among visitors. The room is still used for trials.
There has been a growing interest among tourists to visit the site of trials, especially the courtroom 600, said the organizers, adding that it inspired them to open the exhibit to the public.
