Nuremberg les Nazis face à leurs crimes ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nuremberg, November 20, 1945--The trials of Nazi war criminals begins in a city still in ruins, barely six months after the Germans' surrender. The United States, France, Great Britain and the USSR unite to deliver exemplary justice in response to crimes against peace and, for the first time in history, to "crimes against humanity". On the accused bench sit 21 of the highest Nazi dignitaries, including Hermann Göring, Rudolph Hess, Joachim von Ribbentrop and Wilhelm Keitel. They all plead not guilty, although the "atrocities" committed are tremendous. As evidence, films of the liberation of the concentration camps would be screened, an unprecedented move, during the proceedings. Evidence is presented, confrontations arise, testimonies of executioners and victims are heard. After 10 months of hearings, the verdict is rendered: 12 defendants sentenced to death penalties, including one in absentia, seven sentenced to prison and three acquitted. Thus ends the trial that paved the way for the creation of international tribunals."--Container

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
I could not have invented my life better than it invented itself. All I had to do was take possession of it to write about it.

Un grain d'équité by Jean-Michel Vennemani ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Le café - Plus de 20 millions de personnes en Amérique Latine, en Afrique, en Asie vivent de la production et du traitement du café. Pourtant, la fluctuation des cours et l'érosion des marges ont un effet dramatique sur les petits producteurs. A Cauca, l'une des régions les plus pauvres de Colombie, il est souvent plus rentable de cultiver la coca que le café. Pourtant, certains paysans ont pris la décision de rejoindre la Coopérative paysanne du sud du Cauca (Cosurca), une association soutenue par les Nations Unies pour lutter contre la production de drogue. La condition : arracher tous ces plants illégaux pour se mettre au café. Parmi eux, l'association Laider, producteur de café solidaire et équitable. Afin de commercialiser internationalement une partie de sa production agricole, Laider a fait appel à Andines, une société de commerce équitable créée en 1987 par Michel Besson. C'est l'histoire de cette rencontre entre une communauté de petits paysans très organisée sur les plans agricole, social et éducatif et un homme épris de solidarité que nous racontons ici. De Paris à Popayan, en passant par Bogota et Le Havre, nous suivons la fillière du café équitable 'Soberano' (souverain), fierté de Cosurca et symbole de sa résistance aux lois du marché mondial dans une région où 70% des petits agriculteurs n'ont pas le minimum vital."--Conteneur
