law & the courts

Laws, legislation, and court decisions had enormous effects on the lives of many people during and immediately after the years of Nazi rule and World War II. The Nazi regime used the German legal system to enact discriminatory and murderous policies. However, law and the courts also protected citizens in nations not totally subjugated by the Nazis. Ultimately some Nazi perpetrators and their collaborators were held accountable for their crimes after the war.
