Senator Chris Dodd talked about his book, Letters from Nuremberg: My Father’s Narrative of a Quest for Justice, published by Crown. In the book he chronicles the Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders after WWII through his father’s letters to his mother. Thomas J. Dodd was a prosecuter on the Nuremberg trials and wrote to his wife about the trial and the many people involved from a personal perspective. This is Senator Dodd’s first book, written with Larry Bloom.
Thomas Justin Dodd opened the program by reading excerpts from the letters. Yoni Battat provided a short musical interlude on the violin. Then Whitney Harris, one of only three surviving prosecutors of the Nuremburg Trials, made remarks.
The event, co-sponsored by R.J. Julia Booksellers of Madison, Connecticut, was held in the Alumni Hall of Quinnipiac University. The letters are a portion of restricted materials in the Thomas J. Dodd Papers held in the university archives. close
