The Wilmette Beacon has interview with Peter Less, a Wilmette resident of 64 years, about the time he spent as a translator during the Nuremberg Trials. He escaped Germany before the war began, lost his entire family, and still managed to sit across from Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess and Hans Frank and translate their words into English. After he moved to the US, he became a lawyer and still has a law practice in Chicago.
