Judgment at Nuremberg

Many things were going on.
There were parades.
Hitler and Goebbels came here every year.
What was it like?
We never attended meetings. Never.
I'm not trying to put you on trial.
I'm just curious. I'd like to know.
- Here's your sandwich, Your Honor.
- Thank you.

You're welcome.
Thank you.
For instance,
there was a place called Dachau...

which was not too many miles from here.
Did you ever know
what was going on there?

We knew nothing about it.
How can you ask
if we knew anything about that?

I'm sorry.
Your Honor, we are only little people.
We lost a son in the army...
and our daughter in the bombing.
During the war we almost starved.
It was terrible for us.
I'm sure it was.
Hitler did some good things.
I won't say he didn't do some good things.
He built the Autobahn.
He gave more people work.
We won't say
he didn't do some good things.

But the other things...
the things they say he did to the Jews
and the rest...

we knew nothing about that.
Very few Germans did.
And if we did know...
what could we do?
But Mrs. Halbestadt said you didn't know.
