In the late 1920s and early 30s, Hitler made great play of taking on Germany’s law courts and using these appearances to gain, rather than lose, popularity. At his side was his lawyer, Hans Frank, later the Governor of Nazi-occupied Poland. In this highly thought-provoking discussion, Supreme Court judge, Jonathan Sumption and historian Professor Frank McDonough explore Hitler’s strategy and assess how Donald Trump is similarly able to convert criminal law cases to win him support for this year’s US presidential election.
