Description

A collection of memoranda outlining Judge Hebert's thoughts on the primary issues presented in the case against the defendants. The first section deals with corporate responsibility, the extent of Farben's operations, the issues in defining a crime against peace, the differences between civilian and military personnel, the nature of conspiracy and the nature of the war between Germany and the United Kingdom and France. The second section (dated 12/1/1948) is a memorandum supporting the position that the defendants knowledge of Hitler's plans could not be proven. The third section argues that international law in these matters has been set by the judgement of the IMT. (International Miltary Tribunal). The fourth memorandum describes what subjective knowledge can be inferred to the defendants.
