The Nuremberg trials were a series of military tribunals, held by the victorious Allied forces of World War II, most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military and economic leadership of the defeated Nazi Germany. The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg Bavaria, Germany, in 1945 - 46, at the Palace of Justice. The first nd best known of these trials was the Trial of the Major Was Criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT), which tried 25 of the most important captured leaders of the Third Reich, though several key architects of the war ((such as Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Joseph Goebbels) had committed suicide before the trials began. 

The initial trials were held from November 20, 1945 to October 1, 1946. The second set of trials of lesser war criminals was conducted under Control Council Law No. 10 at the US Nuremberg Military Tribunals (NMT); among them included the Doctors' Trial and the Judges' Trial.
