The Nuremberg Doctors' trial was held in Nuremberg after the end of World War II.

Precedent

The trial established the illegality using any form of compulsion on patients to get them to undergo medical procedures, a precedent of singular importance in the 2021 context of mandatory vaccination against COVID-19.

Hypocrisy

At the same time as German doctors were being charged with war crimes by US military courts (not the International Military Tribunal), US doctors were carrying out similarly murderous medical research in Guatemala.[1]
