Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today

Rated NR 78 minutes 1948

The US-government-produced documentary film record of the 1945-46 Nuremberg war crimes trials of German Nazis in the wake of World War II still packs a punch, even at a brisk 78 minutes. As the now-ubiquitous captured footage reveals, the Nazis meticulously documented their crimes against humanity, essentially fashioning their own celluloid noose. The film — curiously unreleased in the US at the time but shown widely in Germany as part of the Allied de-Nazi-fication process – has been restored by Josh Waletzky and Sandra Schulberg, daughter of original screenwriter Stuart Schulberg, with a new voiceover narration by actor Liev Schreiber. But aside from that, Nürnberg und seine lehre is the same film originally written and directed by Stuart and Budd Schulberg and Pare Lorentz for the US War Department. (78 min.)
