'I think that it's right that it's taking place in Baghdad, just as it was right that [the trial of the Nazis] took place in Nuremberg. If you take it abroad, the Iraqis would never believe it.
In Nuremberg, the Americans were incredibly apparent, whereas here the Iraqis are in charge and you can see an Iraqi judge. In Nuremberg, you would not have seen any German soldiers or German police, it was basically an American trial.
The main problem with the trial is that the trial itself is not of the Iraqis' choice, just as the war has not been the Iraqis' choice.'
Gitta Sereny, Hungarian writer, was an observer at the Nuremberg trials.
