Dr. Jacob Robinson (1889-1977) a jurist, one of the greatest lawyers in Lithuania, a Lithuanian politician, diplomat, Zionist activist, educator and lecturer. During the Nuremberg trials (1945–1946), served as an adviser on Jewish affairs to the Judge Robert H. Jackson, who headed the category team on behalf of the United States, and whose name has been linked to a key role in persuading him to accept as appropriate the new idea of ​​"crime against humanity" as the Nazi indictment for crimes against Jews (the term first appeared in Nuremberg indictments). After the trial of the main war criminals, he continued to follow closely the investigation of their sentences and the procedures for punishing war criminals in a series of trials known as the "Additional Nuremberg Trials". He advised, for example, the Chief Prosecutor in the trial of Friedrich Flick, Brigadier General Telford Taylor. With the capture of Adolf Eichmann he was invited to join the prosecution team headed by Gideon Hausner. His experience in the Nuremberg trials, his knowledge of Germany and the Germans, and his knowledge of Israeli criminal law made him a key figure in the prosecution team. Following the trial, he published the book "Ha'Akov LeMishor: European Jews before the Holocaust in the Light of Historical Truth and the Eichmann Law in Jerusalem According to International Practice", in response (review) to Hannah Arendt's book "Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil".
