Nuremberg: Its lessons for today

The Schulberg/Waletsky Restoration

Monday, January 28th, 2013 at 6:30pm


Post film discussion with John Q. Barrett.

One of the most famous courtroom dramas of all time, Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today shows how the international prosecutors built their case against the top WWII Nazi leaders using the Nazis' own films. The trial established the "Nuremberg principles" - the foundation for all subsequent trials for crimes against the peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. Made by Stuart Schulberg for the U.S. Department of War in 1948, the film was widely shown in Germany as part of the Allies' denazification campaign; but for political reasons the U.S. government decided not to release Nuremberg in American theaters or in any other country. The restoration preserves the original motion picture, and the painstakingly reconstructed audio track allows audiences to hear the defendants' and prosecutors' voices for the first time.

John Q. Barrett is a Professor of Law at St. John's University and the Elizabeth S. Lenna at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, New York.  Professor Barrett is biographer of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson (1892-1954), the chief U.S. prosecutor at Nuremberg.  Professor Barrett is the leading U.S. expert on the Nuremberg trial.  He also writes "The Jackson List," periodic email on Jackson, Nuremberg, the Supreme Court and related topics, which reaches many thousands of subscribers and readers around the world.
