"Cecelia Goetz The Aggressive War Chief of Nuremberg"

HMTC was presented with hundreds of personal letters and court documents of Judge Cecelia Goetz in 2016 and began the essential work of preserving this unique collection. Goetz was the only American female prosecutor to deliver an opening statement at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi criminals, redefining a woman’s role in the courtroom on the international stage. Her detailed correspondence with friends and loved ones reveals daily life during the trials, exposing both the highs and lows of seeking justice in the face of genocide. Her commentary on major figures such as Telford Taylor, the justice system, and even German cuisine give an insightful, humorous, and heartbreaking account of this crucial moment in history. Her dedication to her work earned her the reputation and nickname of “Aggressive War Chief” among her colleagues. 

HMTC is proud to present this unique collection for the first time to the public.
