SummaryThis teacher's guide prepares students for the school program where "students reenact [in a 90-minute mock trial] the trial of Julius Streicher, the publisher of the virulently anti-Semitic newspaper Der Stürmer. In 1946, Streicher was convicted of 'crimes against humanity' for his role in inciting the persecution and murder of Jews through the dissemination of hate propaganda. Using primary source material as evidence, students will role-play Streicher’s trial, learning about the Nuremberg tribunals’ processes and contemporary significance... The purpose of this program is to introduce students to the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg and its precedent-setting role in extending the reach of international law... This program provides opportunities for students to: Use the case of Julius Streicher to learn about key events and themes of Holocaust history: anti-Semitism, propaganda, pre-war anti-Jewish
measures, the 'Final Solution' and post-war efforts to hold perpetrators to account; learn about and apply some of the legal principles and language of the Nuremberg trials; understand the role of hate propaganda in inciting groups to action both during the Holocaust and today; understand and discuss the contemporary legal and political impact of the Nuremberg trials, including the investigation and trial of suspected war criminals at the International Criminal Court at The Hague and Canada’s prosecution of suspected war criminals."
