Judgment at Nuremberg

The defense calls Irene Hoffman Wallner
to the stand.

Mrs. Wallner...
you are still under oath.
Did you come here voluntarily?
Did you report voluntarily
to speak as a witness?

Is it not true that the prosecution
asked you to come here?

That it was very disagreeable for you
to come here?

It is always very disagreeable
to live over those times.

That would be in agreement...
with the information I have
that you did not want to come.

Thank you, Mrs. Wallner.
The Nuremberg Laws
were stated September 15, 1935.

Where were you at that time?
In Nuremberg.
Did you know these laws?
Were you aware
that a physical relationship with Jews...

was against the law?
Were you aware that in Nuremberg,
and in Nuremberg in particular...

not only a physical relationship
with Jews was viewed with disdain...

but every social contact?
Were you aware it might have some danger
for you personally?

Yes, I was aware of it.
But how can you discard a friendship
from day to day because of some...

That is another question, Mrs. Wallner.
I did not ask you that question.
Were you aware of it?
Yes, I was aware.
Yet you still continued to see each other?
