WESTPORT - A Westport artist has found himself in the history books, using a fountain pen to give the world a different perspective of Adolf Hitler's defeated generals.
When World War ll ended, the Nuremberg Trials prosecuting Nazi generals involved in the deaths of millions began. While cameras were there to record the verdicts and sentences for Nazi Germany's infamous leaders, they were not allowed in the court room for the bulk of the trial.
Ed Vebell, a now 90-year-old artist, was the only one allowed in the room. His sketches gave the outside world a look into the expressions of those who were being tried.
Vebell's original drawings are housed at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
