Judgment at Nuremberg

Col. Lawson?
Your Honors...
I offer in evidence a decree
signed by Adolf Hitler...

directing all persons accused...
or suspected of disloyalty
or resistance of any sort...

might be arrested secretly...
with no notice to friends or relatives,
without any trial whatsoever...

and put into concentration camps.
I also offer a group of orders
issued under that decree...

each one signed by one of the defendants...
by which hundreds of persons were arrested
and placed in concentration camps.

Signed by Friedrich Hoffstetter...
Werner Lammpe...
Emil Hahn...
Ernst Janning.
Your Honors...
the defendants on trial here today...
did not personally administer
the concentration camps.

They never had to beat victims...
or pull the lever that released gas
into the chambers.

But as the documents we've introduced
into this case have shown...

these defendants fashioned
and executed laws...

and rendered judgments...
which sent millions of victims to their...
Maj. Radnitz?
Your Honors, I would like to request that
Col. Lawson be sworn in as a witness.

- Granted.
- Thank you.

Will you raise your right hand?
I swear by God,
the Almighty and Omniscient...

that I will speak the pure truth
and withhold and add nothing.

I do.
