Nuremberg: The Nazi Trials

Middlechild Productions


- History & Biography

Also known as... The World’s Biggest Murder Trial: Nuremberg Just over 75 years ago, the "greatest trial in history" was dramatically unfolding in a court room at The Palace of Justice, in Nuremberg, Germany. Once the home of Nazi propaganda rallies, the city was now playing host to the unprecedented war crimes prosecutions of Nazi Germany's leaders – including the murder of millions of Jews during the Holocaust. This compelling new film, using archive, and recently recovered, newly digitised filmed material from the trial, follows the twists and turns of the courtroom drama and tells the story of the most incredible war crimes trial the world has ever seen. Can the prosecutors do enough to convict the Nazi Party’s highest-ranking members, and if so, will they pay the ultimate price for their crimes – death by hanging?
