We envision a global society where the universal principles of equality, fairness, and justice prevail.

For twenty years, we have honored and promoted the legacy of Robert H. Jackson, U.S. Solicitor General, U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, and Chief U.S. Prosecutor of the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg.

The Jackson Center advances the legacy of Justice Robert H. Jackson through education, using a variety of methods including in-person and virtual programs and presentations, exhibits, available media, and scholarship. We demonstrate the contemporary relevance and applicability of Justice Jackson’s ideas and work to current and future generations.

Your gift enables us to envision a global society where the universal principles of equality, fairness, and justice prevail.

EXHIBITS AT THE JACKSON CENTER

Permanent Exhibit: Nuremberg Photos by Raymond D’Addario

Raymond D’Addario was one of a few photographers assigned by the Army Pictorial Service to document the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany. On November 21, 1945, senior Nazi officials took their seats in Courtroom 600 in the Palace of Justice. Ray’s photograph of the main defendants sitting in the docket surrounded by U.S. military guards has become the iconic symbol of the trial.
