Contents: From the first months of the Great Patriotic War, the Soviet Union systematically sought international prosecution of the main Nazi criminals-the organizers and inspirers of terror in the occupied territories. The open trial in Nuremberg allowed not only to bring to justice the highest military and political leadership of Hitler's Germany, but also to lay the foundation for further prosecution of those responsible for atrocities committed during the preparation and waging of the aggressive war.
However, not all Nazi criminals ended up on the prisoners' dock – many managed to avoid punishment or subsequently achieve its cancellation. A number of high-ranking Nazis, such as Reinhard Gehlen, Alfried Krupp, Friedrich Flick, retained their high social position and even managed to take part in the Cold War. As part of the panel discussion, it is planned to discuss a set of historical reasons that led to such selectivity of post-war justice.

Contents: The session is devoted to individual episodes of the most massive of the Nazi extermination campaigns: against civilians of the USSR, against Soviet prisoners of war, and against the Jewish population of various countries that partially or completely fell under the control of Hitler's Germany, and among the dead Jews, a significant part were Soviet citizens and, including, Red Army soldiers.
Some of the cases are widely known and have already received legal assessment during the trials that preceded the Nuremberg Trials (the famous public trials of the Nazis in the liberated Soviet cities, later collectively called "Soviet Nuremberg"), which became its direct continuation (the so-called "Small" or "Subsequent Nuremberg trials"), or conducted years and decades after the crimes that caused them (the most recent example is the recognition by a Russian court of the fact of the destruction of the Soviet civilian population in the village of Zhestyanaya Gorka in the today Novgorod region, as an act of genocide).
Other episodes under consideration are still the subject of discussion for historians and public figures, but not for lawyers. However, recent examples from Russian and international legal proceedings, when the deferred punishment overtook already elderly criminals, or posthumous sentences were read out to already dead Nazis and their accomplices, allow us to hope that the Statute of limitations in this case will never expire, and the murderers, or the memory of them, will always continue to be persecuted not only morally, but also in a procedural order.
