Looking at the trials that took place in Europe for war crimes against humanity had many moral and ethical ideology within the trials itself. A major moral issue of the trials was connected with how do the allies punish the Nazis. In doing so some people were thinking how to punish them for crimes against humanity. Some would say that we must execute them if found guilty. However, some people may find that making them go into a labor camp is the best punishment. That is following the older ways of handling law. An eye for an eye is the expression used by earlier law makers. The judges thought about it but they wanted to take the more higher moral ground and execute or live imprisonment or long years in prison for those found guilty. If we decided to take the lower moral and make them go into harsh labor camps then we will say that we are no different than they were. Sometimes it is best to show or be the better person in this case. There are plenty of moral and ethical issues which is covered in the trials in Europe and in Japan as well. A reasoning behind the UN taking the higher ground could be related to future wars or conflicts if the Nazi’s that were guilty paid an equal punishment just as the Jewish people back in Nazi controlled territory. They want to learn from their past mistakes of blaming Germany fully for WWI which then in turn caused WWII.
