During World War II the Nazis who came to power in Germany imprisoned and killed some 6 million Jews and hundreds of thousands of gypsies, homosexuals, and other people they deemed inferior. Hitler and his forces employed brutal, cruel methods to accomplish the systematic extermination of the Jews. When American troops finally liberated the prisoners who remained in Hitler's death camps, they were horrified by the conditions they found. Hitler and other Nazi officials had killed themselves when defeat was imminent. Who should be held accountable for the horrors? Justice came at the Nuremberg trials in Nuremberg, Germany when an international tribunal of judges from the United States, Great Britain, France, and Russia sentenced top Nazi officials for crimes against humanity.
