Judgment at Nuremberg

Does the defendant
wish to make a statement?

I wish to make a statement, yes.
I believe the defense has the right
to request a recess...

The defendant has the right
to make his statement now.

- I have to speak with my client.
- He has the right to make it now!

Tribunal is adjourned
until 10:30 tomorrow morning.

What are you doing?
What do you think you're trying to do?
They've had Goering. Frank. Streicher.
That's over.
Do you think I have enjoyed
being defense counsel during this trial?

There were things I had to do
in that courtroom that made me cringe.

Why did I do them?
Because I want
to leave the German people something.

I want to leave them a shred of dignity.
I want to call a halt to these proceedings.
If we allow them
to discredit every German like you...

we lose the right to rule ourselves forever.
We have to look at the future.
We can't look back now.

Do you want the Americans
to stay here forever? Do you want that?

I could show you a picture
of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Thousands and thousands
of burned bodies.

Women and children.
Is that their superior morality?
Where do you think they take us?
Do you think they know?

Do you think they have any concept
of our problems?

What can I say to you?
What can I say to you to make you see?
