My words today are from the heart. Let me open my heart and share some memories and feelings with you, and along the way recount some happenings that were important not only to me but also to the history of mankind. My road to Nuremberg began with a 1935 family discussion concerning the prevention of war. My father, who led the discussion, argued that stopping future aggression depended on effectively punishing the leaders who instigated war. I was further propelled on the road to Nuremberg by my wife, Betty. After my graduation from Yale Law School, I followed the then-traditional route to a Wall Street law firm. My wife, however, felt that there was more to life than the Wall Street practice of law.
