An aerial shot of the courtroom showing Pastor Gerecke speaking at the Thanksgiving Day service in Nuremberg in 1945. Justice Jackson’s head is bowed respectfully—perhaps in keeping with his assignment from President Truman and U.S. representational role, his general irreligiousity notwithstanding. And throughout the courtroom, many other heads are bowed too. Courtesy photo An aerial shot of the courtroom showing Pastor Gerecke speaking at the Thanksgiving Day service in Nuremberg in 1945.

He was a Catholic priest, the Vice-President of Georgetown University, and the Regent of its School of Foreign Service.
