During the 70th anniversary year of the Nuremberg Trials, Kilmuir Papers, with English Cabaret, are staging a series of events with Casson's song cycle exploring the birth of modern human rights in Europe - Dreams of Peace & Freedom at the centre. Each will highlight an aspect of David Maxwell Fyfe's role at Nuremberg and illustrate how it led him closer to his later work drafting the European Convention on Human Rights. Autumn performances in Oxford, Nuremberg and London.
At Nuremberg Maxwell Fyfe prosecuted for the UK, cross-examining major Nazi figures Goering and Ribbentrop. Considering the evidence of the Holocaust and Nazi brutality led him directly to his later work drafting the European Convention on Human Rights.
Premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 and toured in Spring 2015 to chime with the Magna Carta celebrations it is now set to follow in Maxwell Fyfe's footsteps from Nuremberg to Strasbourg during 2016.
