FROM THIS EPISODE

Bloodlines

In 1935, Germany’s Nuremberg Laws legalized actions that ultimately led to the death of six million Jews. At the end of World War II, General George Patton received an original copy, signed by Hitler. Locked up in the Huntington Library's vault for 55 years the document was put on view at the Skirball Cultural Center in 1999. The hunt for these documents is the focus of Professor Tony Platt's Bloodlines: Recovering Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws, from Patton’s Trophy to Public Memorial.  Platt discusses the hunt for these documents and the local connections to it with Jonathan Kirsch.
