Judgment at Nuremberg

and we beat them up...
and turned them over to the police.
Did the police do anything about it?
- No.
- Why not?

It was then...
at the time of the national elections.
You mean the time the National Socialists
came to power?

What happened after 1933...
after the Nazis came to power?
I got a job on a farm...
but for the work,
to drive a truck was necessary.

I went to the city building
to apply for a license.

And what happened there?
They took me to an official.
Did you ever have any dealings
with this official before?

He was one of the men...
who broke into our house that night.
What did he say to your application?
He said an examination
there would have to be.

Where was the examination to take place?
In the district court of Stuttgart.
Who was the presiding justice in the court?
Justice Hoffstetter.
What happened in the courtroom?
They asked me my full name...
and so forth.
What else did they ask you?
They asked me when Adolf Hitler
and Dr. Goebbels were born.

What did you reply?
I told them I didn't know,
and also that I didn't care.

Did they ask you any more questions?
