Get the Nuremberg mug.

The trials that brought down -crime syndicate x- were like Nuremberg.

Get the Nuremberg mug.
To use the fact you were only following orders to escape prosecution. Used by Nazi Germany's military officers in Nuremberg when they were on trial for their treatment of the Jews, when they claimed to have nothing to do with it, only doing what they were told to do.

It is seen elsewhere in history... one example would be Oliver North's trial after the Watergate scandal, in which he claimed their illegal activity was just them following orders.
We're not ashamed of killing innocent civilians; we're just following orders.

Get the Nuremberg defense mug.
The lack of a clear legal method of defining who was Jewish
The Nuremberg Laws classified people with four German grandparents as "German or kindred blood", while people were classified as Jews if they descended from three or four Jewish grandparents. A person with one or two Jewish grandparents was a Mischling, a crossbreed, of "mixed blood".1 These laws deprived Jews of German citizenship and prohibited marriage between Jews and other Germans.

the "yuppie nuremberg" defense is when someone does something they know is wrong but tries justify it by simply saying they're doing it for the money. typically a lame excuse. . from the film, "thank you for smoking."
1; You know what your doing is wrong.
2; Everybody has a mortgage to pay.
1; Ah, the yuppie-nuremberg defense.
