For there were hundreds of thousands of Nazi activists who took advantage of having a Nazi government...persecute, enslave, murder, and enrich themselves by plundering the wealth of innocent victims (p, 69)." Rosenbaum further states that many Nazis who escaped justice were able to do so with the wealth they robbed from their victims by paying off those who assisted them and paying for their escape routes.
Contrary to the opinions of some Holocaust revisionists, the International Military Tribunal was not established by "International Zionists" for the purpose of destroying the German people and indicting the entire nation.
Natural lawyers conflict with positivist thinkers who believe that if the Law is made according to correct procedure, then it should be followed however much it conflicts with morality.
Positivists like Kelsen argue that Law and morality are entirely separate concepts, and believes that justice is abstract, therefore it is has no concept in Law.
Fuller took the example of the Nazi Law and condemned with their Legal system.
He argued that Nazi Law was not Law at all as it was so fundamentally unjust.First to try the highest ranking German officials and second to try the groups and organizations in which they worked.If the organizations like the Gestapo were found guilty of crimes against humanity, some members of those organizations would be considered guilty based on their membership and involvement in that particular organization (p, 39).Including killing of hostages, ill-treatment of civilians, use of forced labor and looting of public and private property and racial persecution.The International Military Tribunal, the prosecutors consisting of lawyers and judges from the United States, France, England and the Soviet Union had countless evidence of these crimes committed by the Nazis, however to serve justice to every individual for their inhumane actions was impossible.However, the meaning of Justice is very difficult to define. Much of the issue of justice is very controversial and raises questions such as whether the combination of Law and system produce a just result?There are many aspects of justice that we may question about; i.e. Justice has a definition as follows: ‘The quality of being just or fair, the act of determining rights and assigning rewards or The logical extension of this view is that the Legal rules of a country can be broken if they do not conform to moral Laws, a view that was favoured by St. This theory of Natural Law can be contrasted with Positivism.The Nuremberg Trials prosecuted twenty one defendants (all of whom were Nazi officers) and six major Nazi organizations.Although three organizations were declared criminal by the Tribunal and the defendants were convicted, justice was not completely served to many other organizations and individuals.In fact, German law, at that time, simply legitimized the massive deportations, enslavement and eventual execution of innocent civilians who the Nazis declared "enemies of the state".Under German law, the victims never had the privilege of a trial or adequate representation, unlike the Nazi leaders at Nuremberg, who helped orchestrate crimes and atrocities.
