The war is over. The atrocities have been discovered. Thousands of Nazi officers attempt to flee the country, heading towards South America, believing they will find sympathy and evade justice. The allied forces, Britain, France, the United States and Russia, all agreed to prosecute any living Nazi party officials for the crimes they had committed. The London Charter for the Nuremberg Trials, held in August 1945, saw the allied countries agree on a trial and tribunal court system in which each country would have a judge present. They decided on three significant charges that the Nazi officials would face. The trial was set to put the horrors of the Nazi Regime on display for the world to see. However, three of the most wanted Nazis had already escaped. Rudolf Höss.
Adolf Eichmann. Josef Mengele. Three men who committed some of the worst crimes under the regime were now being hunted.
