Amann: Portraits of Women at Nuremberg

Diane Marie Amann (Univ. of California, Davis - Law) has posted Portraits of Women at Nuremberg (American Society of International Law, Third International Humanitarian Law Dialogs, forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
This essay reflects ongoing research that investigates women who played roles in war crimes trials at Nuremberg, Germany, and situates those women within the context of social developments during the post-World War II. The essay mentions women who were defendants, journalists, or witnesses; however, it focuses on some of the women, mostly Americans, who served as prosecutors at Nuremberg.
