JACKSON CENTER EVENTS
This Day in Nuremberg
If we can root out of men's thinking the idea that all wars are legal, and if we can substitute the conviction that aggressive war is criminal, at last we will have mobilized the forces of law on the side of peace. And if we give to all men in positions of power over the lives of people and the policy of nations an object-lesson that the making of aggressive war is the way to the prisoner's dock, we may somewhat change the psychology of statesmanship. Too long, and in too many part of the world, it has been a crime to advocate peace in the midst of war. It is time that it became a crime to make war when the world so needs peace.
Justice Robert H. Jackson, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court. September 9, 1945.
