Judgment at Nuremberg

No, thanks.
Dan, I've just come back from Berlin,
as you know.

I don't think this is going to be it.
A lot of people do, but I don't.

But it is going to be a fight for survival...
for the next 10 years, maybe the next 20.
Germany is the key to that survival.
Any high-school student in Geography
can tell you that.

Just what are you trying to say, Senator?
What I'm trying to say is this:
While nobody's trying
to influence your decision...

it's important that you realize this,
because it's a fact of life.

Let's face it, gentlemen.
The handwriting is on the wall.

We're going to need all the help we can get.
We're going to need the support
of the German people.

More strudel, gentlemen?
Herr Janning, you may proceed.
I wish to testify
about the Feldenstein case...

because it was the most significant trial
of the period.

It is important not only for the tribunal
to understand it...

but for the whole German people.
But in order to understand it...
one must understand the period
in which it happened.

There was a fever over the land.
A fever of disgrace, of indignity, of hunger.
We had a democracy, yes.
But it was torn by elements within.
Above all, there was fear:
Fear of today, fear of tomorrow...
fear of our neighbors...
and fear of ourselves.
Only when you understand that...
can you understand what Hitler meant to us.
