Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg's Legacy

Temple Sinai Jewish History Center
11 Church Street
Sumter 29150

Temple Sinai Jewish History Center, located in Sumter, SC, will host the traveling exhibition Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy, on display from Thursday, September 2nd through Saturday, December 18th. Pursuing Justice: Nuremberg’s Legacy, is an original exhibition of The Florida Holocaust Museum. The exhibition focuses on two sets of trials that have become known as the Nuremberg Trials: the International Military Tribunal, (November 20, 1945 – October 1, 1946) for the major Nazi war criminals; and the twelve subsequent trials (December 9, 1946 – April 13, 1949) for those criminals not tried at IMT. From June 26, 1945 through August 8, 1945, representatives of four victorious powers (the United States, Great Britain, France and the Soviet Union) deliberated during a conference at Church House in London on the procedures for holding the IMT. After much negotiation, the signatories issued the London Agreement and the Charter, which laid the foundation for the International Military Tribunal. About The Florida Holocaust Museum: The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides. https://www.flholocaustmuseum.org/ Admission: $5 adults $2 for students (6-17) and seniors (65+) Free for children five and under Combo tickets allowing admission to all museum sites including the Temple Sinai Jewish History Center will be available at a discounted rate of $8 for adults $3 for students (6-17) and seniors (65+) Free for children five and under Williams-Brice House, McKenzie Hall, Carolina Backcountry Facilities at 122 N.
