What significance have the Nuremberg Trials today? Are there topics that are especially relevant for us? Were they the “fulfilment of human longings for justice”?

Five artists dealt with these and other questions in their texts. The artists presented their texts according to Poetry Slam rules. The texts have to be self-written and to be presented without any auxiliary means within a certain timeframe. After the first round was an online voting. The two most successful artists could compete in another round and with another online voting the audience  determined a winner.
