Following World War II, at the Nuremberg trials, members of the Nazi regime were convicted of crimes against humanity as a response to the widespread and systematic atrocities they committed against civilian populations during the war, especially the attempted extermination of European Jewry.

Seventy years later, the world still lacks a global treaty for the prevention and punishment of crimes against humanity, despite the ongoing commission of these crimes. Combining the testimony of survivors and the commentary of internationally renowned experts — including the late Whitney H. Harris, a longtime St. Louis resident who served as a Nuremberg prosecutor — “Never Again” chronicles the slow but steady effort to remedy this gap in international law and practice.
