Rule of Law Award
Rule of Law Award Ceremony 2016
May 13, 2016–
Rule of Law Award 2016
Join us May 23rd at 5:30pm as we honor Dr. Sydnor with the Rule of Law award for his distinguished service to the Virginia Holocaust Museum and his years of service in bringing Nazi War Criminals to justice.
For 25 years, from 1981 - 2006, Dr. Charles Sydnor served as an Expert Witness for the Office of Special Investigations in the United States Department of Justice, testifying to revoke the citizenship and deport former SS concentration camp guards and other Nazi War Criminals who had gained entry to the United States fraudulently and illegally after the Second World War.
One of the central lessons of the Holocaust focuses on the centrality of the Rule of Law in the creation and maintenance of civil societies. To safeguard that belief, the Nuremberg Courtroom Committee of the Virginia Holocaust Museum in tandem with the Virginia Law Foundation established an annual program to honor individuals whose life and work emulate the highest ideals enshrined in the principals that established the Nuremberg Military Tribunal (1945–46) and later the International Court of Justice.
This event is free and open to the public, and off-street parking is available.
