Judge Norbert Ehrenfreund and the Ghosts of Nuremberg

The Holocaust Living History Workshop presents:

Judge Norbert Ehrenfreund and the Ghosts of Nuremberg

The Nuremberg Legacy

San Diego Judge Norbert Ehrenfreund is a witness to history in two senses. After graduating from the Missouri School of Journalism, Ehrenfreund joined the U.S. Army and took part in the Allied reconquest of Western Europe under General Patton. After the war, he covered the Nuremberg war crimes trials as a reporter for Stars and Stripes, the army newspaper. His experiences in Nuremberg ultimately resulted in Ehrenfreund’s extraordinary 2007 book, The Nuremberg Legacy, written from his dual perspectives as an eyewitness to history and a Superior Court judge. Ehrenfreund will be introduced by UC San Diego historian Patrick Patterson, who teaches a course on international law, war crimes, and genocide.

When:  Wednesday, March 7, 2012, 5 – 7 pm

Where: UCSD Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Long before I read Ehrenfreund’s book, I wrote “Comrades, Avenge Us,” in which the Nuremberg Legacy makes a U.S. Special Forces major resign his commission, citing Nuremberg.
I will e-mail a PDF of the book to anyone who asks, mentioning “LEGACY.”
I’d love the judge to read it, but don’t know how to reach him.
