Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg with Historian Francine Hirsch
Join us for a free webinar on Monday, February 8, 2021, at 3 pm for our Al & Marge Brown Lecture on WWII. This lecture will feature historian Francine Hirsch, Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Professor Hirsch is a historian of Modern Europe with a specialization in Russia and the Soviet Union. She will discuss her second book, Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg: A New History of the International Military Tribunal After World War II (New York: Oxford University Press, 2020.) The book presents the first complete history of the Nuremberg Trials. Drawing on thousands of documents from the former Soviet archives, it reveals the unexpected contribution of Stalin’s Soviet Union to the International Military Tribunal and to the postwar development of international law.

The Al and Marge Brown Lecture Series on World War II was established in 2018 by an endowment gift from Phil and Mary Ann Zimmer to benefit the Jackson Center.
