Judgment at Nuremberg

Didn't you realize...
what it would have meant if you,
and men like you...

would have refused to swear to the oath?
It would have meant that Hitler
could never have come to absolute power.

Why didn't you?
Why didn't you?
Can you give us an explanation?
Has it something to do with your pension?
Did your pension mean more to you
than your country?

Your Honor!
I object to the entire line of questioning,
and ask that it be stricken from the record.

I thought prosecuting counsel
was dedicated to finding responsibility.

Your Honor, I made an objection.
Prosecution is not interested
in finding responsibility?

There is responsibility for more here
than swearing to a loyalty oath...

- and you know it.
- There is indeed.

One thing that even the German machine,
with its monumental efficiency...

has been unable to destroy...
All the victims.
More victims than the world has ever known.

- They will walk into this courtroom...
- Order!

This tribunal will admonish both counsel.
It will tolerate nothing of this kind again.

We're not here to listen to outbursts
of this kind, but to serve justice.

Your Honor, I made an objection.
The objection is overruled.
The witness is excused.
Did you ever read any books by Janning?
No, I don't think so.
- The Meaning of the Law.
- How is it? Interesting?

All the books by Janning are interesting.
They're more than that.
