Judgment at Nuremberg

He'd gone to visit her since they died.
But there had never been anything
of the kind charged between them.

Doctor, would you please tell the tribunal
what happened then?

He was indicted before
the special court at Nuremberg.

And where was this special court?
It was right here, this building.
This very courtroom.
What were the circumstances
surrounding the trial?

It was used as a show place
for National Socialism.

It was the time
of the September celebrations...

the Nuremberg rallies.
The courtroom was crowded.
Back there, people were standing up.
Julius Streicher was sitting
in one of the front seats.

And high officials of the Nazi Party
were all over.

Would you please tell us...
what were your expectations for the trial
in this climate?

I expected the worst...
when I saw...
that Emil Hahn was the public prosecutor.
He was a fanatic.
His trials were always marked
by extreme brutality.

But I had one hope for the outcome...
because sitting on the judge's bench...
was Ernst Janning.
His reputation
was known throughout Germany.

He was known
to have dedicated his life to justice.

To the concept of justice.
Thank you. That's all.
Any questions?
