Presidential Series on Inclusivity concludes by honoring John E. Dolibois

The Miami University Performing Arts Series is concluding its Presidential Series on Inclusivity by celebrating the legacy of John E. Dolibois with “Judgment at Nuremberg” performed by L.A. Theatre Works at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 13, in Hall Auditorium.

As the world commemorates the 75th anniversary of World War II, L.A. Theatre Works will perform one of the great courtroom dramas of the last century. The American-led tribunals were formed to prosecute those accused of war crimes committed during WWII against those considered inferior to the Aryan Race.

John E. Dolibois (Miami ’42), Miami’s vice president emeritus for university relations and former U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg, was part of an American team that interrogated top-ranking Nazis for the Nuremberg Trials. According to The Washington Post, “Few U.S. intelligence officials came to know those men more intimately than did John E. Dolibois. His work as an interrogator … provided insight into the psyches of the Nazi perpetrators.”

All Miamians who attended or taught at the Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg will be recognized.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $19 for seniors and $10 for students and youth.

This event is sponsored by the Western College Alumnae Association and Kona Bistro.
