Nazi German war crimes in Poland violated “the law above the law”

The perpetrators of the Nazi German war crimes thought they could do whatever they wanted to do without consequence, including the killing 6 million people in Poland (including 3 million Jews). Those who were brought before the court argued the moral relativism view that no one has the right to tell them what is right or wrong. They thought they could decide for themselves what is right or wrong and there was nothing wrong about what they had done. But the judge ruled they had violated “the law above the law.” Even the judge understood that there is indeed a universal moral standard of right and wrong with a universal moral duty to do what is right.
