The Nuremberg Trials: 65 Years Later

The Takeaway

This article was originally covered by PRI’s The Takeaway. For more, listen to the audio above.

Sixty-five years ago, the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany, set to work seeking justice for the horrendous crimes committed by the Nazis during World War II.  One of the people who compiled that damning footage was Stuart Schulberg. He was also hired by the U.S. government to turn tapes of this “trial of the century” into a commercial film. While his movie, “Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today” was released widely in Germany, it was never released in the United States. Sandra Schulberg, Stuart’s daughter, has restored her father’s work and talks with us about why the film still matters. “Nuremberg” is now showing in theaters in New York and Washington, DC.
