Hoosier Justice at Nuremberg


Hoosier Justice at Nuremberg
By Suzanne S. Bellamy

Following World War II, as the world grappled with the enormity of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazi regime, two former justices of the Indiana Supreme Court had a significant role in America's response to unfolding events in Germany. Both Frank Richman of Columbus and Curtis Shake of Vincennes had retired from the court to begin new phases in their profession when world events intervened. Called to serve as civilian judges in the Nuremberg tribunals convened to try secondary Nazi war criminals, both men sat on the bench in the trials of leading German industrialists for crimes against humanity, applying international law according to American concepts of fairness.
