Judgment at Nuremberg

How could you think that we knew?
We did not know.

We did not know.
As far as I can make out,
no one in this country knew.

Your husband was one of the heads
of the army.

And he did not know.
I tell you, he did not know.

It was Himmler. It was Goebbels.
The SS knew what happened.
We did not know.

Listen to me.
There are things that happened
on both sides.

My husband was a military man all his life.
He was entitled to a soldier's death.
He asked for that.

I tried to get that for him, just that,
that he would die with some honor.

I went from official to official.
I begged for that.

That he be permitted the dignity
of a firing squad.

You know what happened?
He was hanged with the others...
and after that, I knew what it was to hate.
I never left the house, I never left the room.
I drank.

I hated with every fiber of my being.
I hated every American I had ever known.

But one can't live with hate, I know that.
We have to forget, if we are to go on living.
