Will Calls for Nuremberg Bring Pandemic Justice?
Dr. McCullough Makes Symbolic Visit to Nuremberg for Series of Lectures
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
After my call for complete removal of COVID-19 vaccines from human use in the European Parliament, I made a final set of appearances in Stuttgart, Puschendorf, and then Nuremberg. I can’t help but wonder if calls for Nuremberg 2.0 after pandemic atrocities will ever come to fruition.
On December 9, 1946, an American military tribunal opened criminal proceedings against 23 German physicians and administrators for their participation in war crimes and crimes against humanity. This was Case #1 of the Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings.
US Army Brigadier General Telford Taylor was Chief of Counsel for the Doctors Trial. In Taylor's opening statement for the prosecution:
"The defendants in this case are charged with murders, tortures, and other atrocities committed in the name of medical science. The victims of these crimes are numbered in the hundreds of thousands. A handful only are still alive; a few of the survivors will appear in this courtroom. But most of these miserable victims were slaughtered outright or died in the course of the tortures to which they were subjected. For the most part they are nameless dead. To their murderers, these wretched people were not individuals at all. They came in wholesale lots and were treated worse than animals."
In Nazi Germany, German physicians planned and enacted the Euthanasia Program, the systematic killing of those they deemed "unworthy of life." The victims included the institutionalized mentally ill and physically impaired. Further, during World War II, German physicians conducted pseudoscientific medical experiments utilizing thousands of concentration camp prisoners without their consent. Most died or were permanently impaired as a result. Jews, Poles, Russians, and Romanian gypsies were the most common victims of experimentation.
After four months of proceedings, including the testimony of 85 witnesses and the submission of almost 1,500 documents, the American judges pronounced their verdict on August 20, 1947. Sixteen of the doctors were found guilty. Seven were sentenced to death. They were executed on June 2, 1948 (Courtesy United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, DC).
