Winton Higgins — Rule of Law

FILLING FAST — BOOK NOW

We are pleased to welcome Winton Higgins, a Tom Keneally Writing Master Class alumni, to talk about his novel, Rule of Law, in conversation with Tom Keneally.

Rule of Law follows four people through the first Nuremberg trial in 1945-46: Hans Fritzsche, a top Nazi top propagandist; Katerina Thornton, a German woman working as a simultaneous interpreter; Richard Sonnenfeldt, a young, spirited German Jew working with the American prosecution; and Sir Norman Birkett, a judge of the British High Court who arrives in Nuremberg as the alternate British judge on the tribunal.

As the graphic horrors of Nazi war crimes are exposed, the world’s attention is held through newsreels, and press and radio reports. The war-damaged, polyglot ‘trial community’ are thrown together in this small, bombed-out city as the media circus grows. So much can go wrong, and so much could be lost.
