This US government film is a grim and unflinching documentary account of the Nuremberg trials, told almost totally without editorial comment.
During the trials, the courtroom was dominated by a large motion picture screen upon which the prosecution showed films of Nazi atrocities; much of this footage was confiscated from the private libraries of high Nazi officials and proved to be the most damning evidence against them. Excerpts of these films are included with the trial sequences.
Due to graphic footage, this film is not recommended for viewing by young audiences.
