Whitney Harris Has Died at Age 97

A truly remarkable man has passed away. Whitney Harris passed away at age 97. He was the last surviving prosecutor who appeared before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.

In his work at Nuremberg, he assisted in the cross examination of Nazi defendant Hermann Goring, was chiefly responsible for the prosecutions of defendant Ernst Kaltenbrunner, former Chief of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (Reich Main Security Office), and participated in the interrogations of former Auschwitz concentration camp commandant Rudolf Hess.

In fulfilling these important tasks, he made a difference in the world. We owe him a debt of gratitude for listening to those who could not speak of the horrible experiences they endured.
