NUREMBERG TRIALS.
[KENTISH, KATHLEEN.] An album of 65 gelatin silver prints, 8 x 10 to 2 1/2 x 3 inches, 1945-1946, mounted to album leaves, bound into 3-ring embossed leatherette album, with 2 clipped articles and an original sketch. Leaves coming loose, light wear.

EXTENSIVE NUREMBERG TRIALS ARCHIVE ASSEMBLED BY THE SECRETARY OF SIR DAVID MAXWELL FYFE, THE BRITISH CHIEF PROSECUTOR. The album shows the courtroom including 2 of Sir David at the rostrum, Nuremberg social life, the departure of the British delegates, and small-format tourist photos. Kathleen Kentish of Clapham Park, London, spent a year in Germany as private secretary to Sir David Maxwell Fyfe. One of the highlights of the Nuremberg Trials was Fyfe's drawn out cross-examination of Hermann Göring, whom he later conceded was the ablest man he ever interrogated. Fyfe centered his prosecution on Göring's order to murder the 50 British airmen who escaped Stalag Luft III (as depicted in the film The Great Escape). Göring's eventual capitulation was the greatest triumph of Fyfe's career.
