Whitney Harris

The late Whitney Harris and Judge Hans Peter-Kaul.
Earlier this week, Judge Hans-Peter Kaul of the International Criminal Court delivered a wonderful lecture at a conference held at Washington University commemorating the 100th birthday of Whitney Harris, the Nuremberg Prosecutor who passed away two years ago. Judge Kaul's tribute to Whitney Harris highlighted his great determination to see the creation of the International Criminal Court, and his conviction that the institution should have jurisdiction over the crime of aggression. Judge Kaul also added many personal touches about the friendship he and his wife Elizabeth developed with Whitney and Anna Harris and their family, including their dramatic first meeting at the Rome Conference in 1998.
The St. Louis Conference, organized by Prof. Leila Sadat, brought together a host of interesting speakers who reflected on the development of the International Criminal Court in the course of its first decade.
