Did the Germans get a fair trial at Nuremberg?

Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, soon to be Chief Justice, Harlan Fiske Stone, criticized the IMT at Nuremberg as follows (in a private letter to Sterling Carr, dated 4 December 1945):

Harlan Fiske Stone as Chief Justice

 

“Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party in Nuremberg. I don’t mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my old-fashioned ideas.” [A.T. Mason, Harlan Fiske Stone: Pillar of the Law, 1956, p. 716]

It is not necessary to appeal to personal authority in this matter, however. The specific points in support of the contention that the Germans did not get a fair trial before the IMT at Nuremberg, have become, over time, relatively uncontroversial: it is only when you derive from the uncontroversial facts the obvious conclusion that the IMT was indeed a “high-grade lynching party,” that controversy occurs. Here is a detailed presentation of those now uncontroversial facts.
