Research into Nuremberg Trials

As part of my dissertation I was advised to look at the Nuremberg Trials as it was a well documented event in society which asked the question. How much are normal people responsible for when considering large scale evil acts. The Trials ultimately saw the accused claim that their evil acts were just them following orders therefore how could they be punishable. A valuable book I read on this topic was Nuremberg: Evil on Trial by James Owen. This gave an in depth balanced overview of the events. This below is a youtube video of the events.

The accused were eventually deemed guilty.
