Nuremberg Trials

By David Maxwell
On December 9, 2012

Xavier students and guests experienced a first-hand account of the process of the Nuremberg Trials. John Dolibois, who was one of five interrogators for the prosecution of many Nazi war criminals during the Nuremberg Trials, spoke at Xavier on Tuesday, Oct. 23. As a prosecutor, Dolibois became particularly familiar
with some of the most powerful Nazi leaders including Herman Goering, Julius Streicher and Rudolf Hess as he determined which men were to be prosecuted at Nuremberg. Dolibois revealed that he received information from the prisoners by pretending to be a "welfare officer"
who provided basic hygiene necessities. Dolibois joked, "People ask where the Nazis were before the trial, and they say the Nazis were in South America, Africa and the
Alps planning World War III. No, they were with me."
Dolibois' speech is the third event in a lecture series called
"Touching History," which is presented
by the Office Of Interfaith Community Engagement. A
Miami University alum, Dolibois was born in Luxembourg and after emigrating to the U.S., he served in the U.S. military during WWII. After his service and his work for the Nuremberg Trials, President Ronald Reagan appointed him U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg. The Nuremberg Trials were held between November 1945 and October 1946 and prosecuted 23 of the highest-ranking Third Reich
officials.
